Look who is back at my house! Little Sox came back home yesterday because it was discovered that a member of his new family was violently allergic to cats! I felt really sorry for their young son who had already fallen in love with Sox and cried when he had to give him up, but we assured him that Sox would have a good home again. Small comfort that, I know. I have to confess to having teared up a bit myself when we told him goodbye. As hard as goodbyes are, we're hoping to find another forever home for him because we already have enough kitties.
~We've had a few sunny days here and there!~
I can't tell you how many projects are started but not finished in and outside my house. But, I just happened upon another sort of project that I want to tackle and it will be a bit easier than the others that are on the waiting list. And this is one I want to start on right now!
We have a flat screen tv downstairs in the family room, actually it is really the man-cave, and in the living room we have an oldie but goodie tv in an oak entertainment center. I don't watch tv much, but when my son comes home to visit, the men gather around the tv in the living room instead of downstairs if there is a ballgame on or to watch a movie. Reason? It is closer to the cook, of course! My son, who has a huge flat screen tv, hates our little oldie but goodie and loves to remind us that we need a bigger tv upstairs. I never really thought much about it until I saw a photo of a wall arrangement at bj's and asked myself why didn't I ever think of this? Sometimes, the simplest solutions seem to escape me.
In the photo I saw, there is a nice flat screen tv with a table under it and flanked by a bookcase on each side! Bingo! I have always wanted and needed more bookcases! I'd have room for books, photos, and maybe baskets for storage for the DVDs. To be honest, I'm more excited about the idea of getting bookcases than I am about a new tv! I might have to move a couple pieces of furniture downstairs, but I could make it work. Now here comes the hardest part...to sell this plan to BG, who is probably just a wee bit tired of hearing about my ideas. What do you think? Should I make cookies first before asking??
Until next time...
