Monday, Monday and a whole new chapter

I am not a negative person by nature.  In fact I despise negative people and strive to always be positive.  With that I have decided to stay focused on CROCHET and other positive things in my life.  I am a Libra and if any of you are as well I'd like to know.  Striving for that perfect balance in life is really what my whole is made up of.  So at times I get caught up in this vicious circle and when I find myself unhappy I usually realize it's because I am not living towards harmony.

My DH and I had a productive weekend.  He was so frustrated with the state of the garage he finally made the decision to start his organizing and built some shelves. 

As you can see, he's good at what he does and they really came out great.  He's going to basically line two walls with this type of shelving.  The garage looks so much bigger now! 

I was also quite productive.  I decided I could no longer tolerate the brown plaid in the kitchen so I primed it:

(sorry for the oversized pic.  I can't figure out to reduce it...)

and then gave it the first coat of it's new color!!

Talk about feeling better already!  Both the DH and I are loving the new color.  It's given us a whole new idea about the kitchen and has made our decisions on the new appliances, cabinets and even the backsplash behind the stove.  Now all we need is MONEY!!  LOL

I did manage to do a bit of crocheting.  I finished up the second scarf Christmas gift and also finished another for the craft sale - a pretty white and blue suede.  I will try and get a pic of them and put them up for you to see I've not abandoned my crochet for interior design (thankfully!!). 

SONG OF THE BLOG:  "Feliz Navidad" by Jose Feliciano.  I love this song.  And I have no idea why. 



  1. I'm a Virgo but I get stuck in the same rut. I have to shack myself out of it when I realize what is going on. I get very snapish when I'm like that.

    Glad things are coming along in your house. I got my tree up last night, going to try to put the ornaments on tonight along with making two pumpkin pies and some spiced cider. The kids have been after me for the cider so I'm on it tonight.

    Have a good week!

  2. I just have to remember to keep it all in perspective and not allow my thoughts to get wild. LOL I'm normally a very logical person - emotions don't run rampant for me and when they do things get all out of whack.

    Cider and pumpkin pie sounds awesome!! How did they turn out??
