As you can see above, I've finally invested in a proper header--you dig? That, friends, is the work of The Blue Ridge Gal, divine goddess of design and proprietor of two of the sweetest pups you'd ever want to meet. Diane's one of the fun bloggy people, if you haven't met her yet, you should. She puts a bit of perk and punch in your day.
Speaking of fresh & tidy, check out my laundry room! Two years ago I painted it, but ran out of paint (and patience). Can you believe I'd be so lazy? It's true. To fully appreciate how bad it was, behold:
Like most neglected spaces, I did what any self-respecting slob would do, I kept tossing more junk into the room:
And it got dirtier and messier and more horrible.
This project's sat on my "to-do" list for TWO YEARS, but I finally got after it this week and I'm so pleased. Fully coated, scrubbed down (even below/behind my washer & dryer, where I found a missing hammer, several Nerf bullets, a book and some stray socks) this room is now a thing of beauty.
We got rid of several old/outgrown pairs of shoes, tossed out a bunch of crap and I even bought a bench.
Here it is, all lived in and useful once more.
It feels good to cross that chore off my list.
Speaking of crossing stuff off, here's Mr. B who passed his first TnT handbook at Awana Tuesday night. I could not be prouder, nor could he. He worked pretty darn hard memorizing a BUNCH of verses and working through the sections. Plus he's cute, so why not post a picture of him, right?
Spill it, reader. What have you felt proud of lately? And more importantly, do you know The Blue Ridge Gal, Diane?
