I went today to the mall on a specific task. I happened to walk by the linens department of a major department store, and what should I see but the sheets I have been looking for for a month. On sale. 40% off , plus an additional 15%. Well, count me in! I purchased the sheets, two shams, a duvet cover, and bed skirt. I spent the afternoon washing, drying, ironing, and starching these. It looks beautiful. I have taken a bath prior to putting my body in this sea of milk white. Oh, I can't wait.
I was invited to my friend's for dinner. My friend who I sponsored as she was confirmed... and then moved away. She moved to a lovely new home and is in the process of making it much lovelier. When I walked into her master bedroom, I knew what I needed to do with mine. Hers is painted a dark green. Mine is painted an odd blue. I am going to paint it dark green, which will go with my draperies, and the white bed will pop against the dark green. Imagine waking up every morning to a green room! What could be better?
So tomorrow I am gratefully going back to work after a week off. I needed the week off, and now I need to go back. Whoever dreamed up the idea of vacations was a genius.
I am so grateful for my job and looking forward to seeing my friends there.
Life is good. Let's stay sober through it, good and bad, OK?
