I am slowing down even more these days. My huge pregnant belly is making it difficult to get things done. I have been slowly working my way through the dining room painting this whole week (in 15-20 minutes bursts) and I am very close to being done. I am certain it will be complete by Thanksgiving this Thursday. Made some new curtains as well and am really happy with them.
My to do list for the next few days:
finish dining room painting Mostly done! There is a small amount of trim that needs to be neatened up, but 95% of the way there.
hang wall art
wash dining room windows
wash living room windows Did 2 of the 5. Will finish tomorrow.
keep the house tidy
buy something green for dining room (houseplant if I can find one)
wash and iron cloth napkins
make decisions on Thanksgiving menu Keeping my part simple. Dh is deep frying the turkey and making pies, FIL is making the sweet potatoes and I am making dressing, cranberry sauce and kale. I picked up some smoked trout for an appetizer and some wine/beer. I am totally taking the easy road this year and using simple recipes and ditching anything too fussy. Ha! Should be a fun holiday.
relax My feet are up and I am done for the day
would love to vacuum, but might need to ask dh to do it Swept instead and it is good enough. We'll do a more thorough cleaning before Thursday.
