Hi my friends. It is Sunday… a day where I like to forget about all things project related and take time for myself.
This week was a busy one as Ed and I began installing the new flooring in our bedroom. We still have a ways to go, but the hard part of laying it down in two walk-in closets is done. Lots of angles and cuts to figure out. Which can be a little stressful getting right.
I love how the wide planks look and the color I chose. You know when you make a big color decision about something that may be forever and you want to get it right? I was back and forth on two colors, but could not be happier with my choice. More to come on the bedroom changes over the next few weeks
Ed also removed the old top boards from our dock and replaced them with new wood in the 90 degree heat. That went so well that he then did the same thing on the second floor deck. It even made me exhausted watching him. Now it is my turn to get the new wood stained.
My body and mind truly needed a break and I am simply sitting back today and enjoying some down-time!
A few links to things that were part of my week….
What I am Reading:
I haven’t finished it yet, but I didn’t buy this book for the contents, although I do love books. I bought, I’d Rather Be Reading because I adore the cover. Seeing all my favorite colors in such a charming watercolor makes my visual brain light up. When I am done reading, it will be going on my coffee table to be used a decoration. :-)
What I Learned This Week:
With pumpkin season upon us, do you know how to find the best pumpkin for what you’re doing? This guide will make you a pumpkin pro.
Fall pumpkin idea for anyone who loves Coastal Decor.
What I Bought Recently:
I forgot how much I love this drug store cleanser. My skin feels and looks so much better when I use it.
I still have another month to enjoy warm weather. I bought this to wear when I am out and about with a pair of black jeans or skirt.
What I Ate This Week:
I am always looking for something to go with a salad for dinner. This was delish!
As a blogger behind a screen, I am never quite sure who I reach unless they leave me comments. A longtime reader who was always too timid to comment, finally did earlier this week to tell me that I inspired her so much that she started her own blog and asked to interview me.
I know not all readers want to start blogs, but I hope I can keep inspiring you in many different ways. The online world has become truly saturated and has changed so much. The word “influencer” is the buzz word today. It is my goal to try to stay an “inspirer” as long as I can.
I hope you are in weekend mode and can take a moment to unwind yourself. XO :-)
