Yesterday was one of those days.  I was restless, I had finished visiting blogs, I had even downloaded some book releases.  You can guess what’s next, right?  See my reconfigured living area above.

The wicker loveseat was in front of the bookcase, and the pub table lived by the sliding glass door.   Of course I had to do a switcheroo.  And the little table by the loveseat used to be on the other side of the room.  The only photo I could find of it there was one I snapped at Christmas!

I realized that most of my recent photos were taken in my office…where I spend a LOT of time.

Here is another view of my changes, from the other side of my sofa:

The view outside can be nice…but first I have to clear the leaves off the patio.  Every week, the gardeners blow them off the lawns and onto my space with their annoying device!  I would like to go out there…and I would also enjoy looking out through an open window. I wish they would stop doing that.  Below, here is the view I would like to see.  Now that I look at this photo, I am missing the little table I once had here…but it is now in my office, with my TV and various devices on it.

My furniture is in a constant state of flux…reconfiguring and repurposing…

I did a couple more shots of recent changes, like this hall tree with handbags.  My newest bag is front and center.

Then I moved my little hassock over to where the small table once sat:


This morning, I was quietly screaming when I tried to open my Internet home page.  I kept getting a message that the connection was unavailable.  I knew I had Internet service, as I saw the little icon at the bottom of the page that announces “Internet Access”!  Just to be sure, I checked all of my connections…and then restarted the computer.  Checked my AVG Internet Security…no issues.  And voila!  The page came up.  But now I’m feeling paranoid.

Later…it happened again, so I went through the Firefox troubleshooting process and found it!  I had to go to my security site and unclick a box.  Done and done!

I’m finished with The Family Gathering.  (Click for review) I love the setting and the characters.


What random activities are absorbing you today?  Do you get distracted by tasks…and then realize that the morning has slipped by?




    1. Thanks, Patty, I realized that I hadn’t done a complete upheaval in a while. It was long overdue, but I’ve just tipped a few things. Big upheaval lies ahead.

      I was thinking of shopping…but then I realized that it was too hot outside.


  1. I rarely change furniture around because… I don’t have that much! But… I have been spending time cleaning each space, you know dusting artworks etc. Boring but necessary. I visited an aunt this morning and went out to lunch with past colleagues. Then I got absorbed into planning a book quilt to hand over my bed. Time goes fast when I start to do something like that!

  2. I’ve just retired, so the novelty of being free has not worn off yet. I’m working (at last!) on a couple of book projects, I’m cooking and baking (I love to bake fresh bread in my cast iron skillet), I’m walking and swimming and doing yoga at the Y, and, of course, I’m reading like a crazy person.

    I rearranged my living room yesterday, too. It feels cozier now.

    1. Oh, yes, I remember the early retirement period. It was good…I traveled a little bit. I didn’t do any cooking or baking…I’m not a fan of that activity after doing it for a family for all those years. I did enjoy downsizing, and that happened a couple of years after I retired.

      I like my smaller space, but I have to keep changing things around; only a little bit, though. I have only moved the bigger furniture once…my back felt it!

      I know what you mean about rearranging and making things cozier. Did you take photos? Thanks for stopping by, Deb. Enjoy arranging your days to suit yourself!


  3. I think I need you to come to my house to decorate. Seriously. We’ve lived here for almost 11 years and it still looks like we just left the dorm. Your place, however, is just delightful!

  4. I’m so impressed by your redecorating motivation! Everything in our house is pretty much where it’s been for the past 25 years, except for all the kid stuff that has been moved out.

    I could use some decluttering, though – really need to spend a weekend taking photos of stuff (lots of that old kid stuff in the basement) and posting on Craig’s List 🙂

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. Thanks, Sue, decluttering is an ongoing process, isn’t it? I have more to do in my closets and in the kitchen.

      Enjoy your week, and good luck with the Craigs List sales. I have stuff in bins in my garage that I should deal with.
