for an advertising campaign for Lowe's.
It has to include the fact that you only need to spend $20 (less than lunch these days)
to spend an entire day working beside your loved one.
Just think of the possibilities!
Mission accomplished today ... after that $20 trip to Lowe's.
When we moved into our home there was a large coat closet (seems much smaller now) between the entry and the kitchen.
Coats? Why on earth would you keep coats upstairs when you have a mudroom?
Now, I know. My current coat closet is the railing above the stairs.
We had a greater need for a place to put computers. The living area here is not very big ... and we are sort of connected computer junkies.
Keeping the devices, printers and all the assorted cords in the living room was out of the picture.
We revamped that coat closet and it has gotten progressively worse looking.
It doesn't matter what I say, eating utensils always show up there.
You get the idea.
This was the before ... and I just recently cleaned it.
Computer hard drives sitting on the floor.
So many cords that you'd trip over them if you could.
I'm off today so we headed to Lowe's, spent our $20 and then came home to work.
2 computers, 2 printers, modems, cable boxes and 13 million cords out of the room.
Carpet out. Holes doctored.
Then on to paint. Don't you just love the paint tray?!
Gotta love the extras from the hospital.
Paint went on ....
And that folks ... was my Tuesday.
I did take some pictures outside as I walked around picking up rakes and trash ...
in my sweatshirt.
It is just wrong, this 40 to 45F temperature we're having.
The snow is melting much too fast.
It is, however, conducive to things like spring cleaning.
I remember having the same fervor last winter.
Hurry up and clean it quick.
Soon winter will be here again ... and we can nest in comfort.
