I've started a number of projects on this lil' ol' blog and have a handful of them just waiting for me to get back to and call it a wrap.
There's the time the cows came home. But, first, they ran away. I've only written Part I. I've been told it's moooo-ving. Right.
Libby got a facelift. I promised a nice set a spell on the front porch with photos. But then I painted the front door. And I don't like how it turned out. I haven't re-painted it. So we wait.
January, the month of beginnings, brought the start of a mini series about personal finances.
And, if my math is right, I'm still short five out of 31 Days of Green Acres.
Here's how this all fits together.
I'm doing a little "housecleaning"- for real, and in my blog content.
Spring has been long in coming and winter needs clearing out.
So, as I sort, purge, reorganize, and get new projects started, I'm evaluating many of my loose ends.
Turns out that more than once I've said I'd offer a photo tour of this old farmhouse, but have only posted scattered images.
And, I've been participating all along over at Edie's:
Here's the connection.
Today's link up is about our homes. What have we been doing to live more intentionally in our houses, apartments, townhomes, and yurts.
Well, I haven't seen anybody link up with a yurt, but that would be way awesome!
So, would you like to come on in? Not only do I long to be more hospitable, today's link up offers an opportunity to purposefully make good on one of too many unfulfilled commitments.
I've got one space in particular I've been working on since September. Yup, for for-eveh.
We have a zero budget decorating policy around these parts, so everything you see is thrifted, a dumpster score, or built in our shop.
And, when I say that, it makes me giggle that I've given this space a name with such gravitas.
She doesn't take herself all that seriously.
Furthermore, it is not lost on me that she doesn't hold that many books.
But, that's what we named her when we moved in and it stuck.
She's an office, therapy center, conference room, reading nook, coloring space, filing center, refuge, retreat, sick room, and music room.
Early mornings she and I settle into each other for prayer, scripture reading, coffee, and contemplation.
At midday she graciously accepts more stacks of paper to be added to my helter skelter administrative system.
Evenings she welcomes me to write, talk with kids or Weekend Farmer Hubby, and often catch up on email and social media.
She's a jack of all trades and is gracious enough to be master of none.
Formerly a bedroom.
Still a work in progress.
Two final images for you:
The final frontier- once I've sorted a few other areas, these shelves will be full of handy books and supplies for home education. Oh yeah- I forgot. I'm on the lookout for the perfect light fixture. The bare bulb just isn't rocking my world. But, it does light my world.
And, lastly, a nod to the master ( tee- hee )!
