Or maybe just lost in general. So many things to do, so many surfaces to clean. I just don’t know where to start. I think I envisioned a home when all the building was done. Couldn’t wait to get my stuff back in, use the kitchen, place a fresh bouquet of flowers on the tables and be all set.
Of course I knew I had to mob, scrub, wipe and clean but we would be back in business. Instead there’s a house and I need to work it into a home.
We need to get acquainted to the new, incorporate the old and embrace the whole. It will take some time that’s all. Note to self: lower the bar!
I guess I stumbled into a little black hole. No longer keeping track of builders, phone calls to make, making endless to do lists. Don’t be afraid, there’s plenty to do on my list, lots of little and not so little things to complete either by us or by the builders but I find myself stuck on a chair staring into space.
R2-D2 where are you ?
I tried to make pictures
today some time ago on a grey day to show you the progress but they’re a bit humhum.
Boys are shaping chocolate chip cookies.
The new sofa’s in place, the credenza (word I learned and never forget!) is back.
This is our garden set, we’re going to get our dining table and chairs back tomorrow. We still need all light fixtures, so that’s why that one is standing there. Curtains. That too. Art on the walls. Decor in general.
Yay, some decoration going on here! The vintage coffee tins my grandmother gave me, a small box of Camarque salt and the Swedish Chef in place!
I wrote this quite some time ago, since then the situation has changed at least in a visual manner. Our dining table is back, I’ve been using the kitchen but found out I really have to get used to the stoven and oven. In the meantime we have been struck by uncharacteristically warm weather which left us gasping for air in a chair.
Decided to post this anyway. A start is a start right?
