It has been something of a roller coaster around these parts lately.
We finally had a professional in to look at the kitchen and he should be here to finally get us a bare bone kitchen (with out the pretty frillings) in about ten days. He is finishing up some other jobs first so that he can work on this one continuously and really focus to get it done.
Which I can appreciate, because it gets it done faster and my kid ends up off schedule for less time.
I will be so THANKFUL for a kitchen. For the first time in almost 6 MONTHS. To also not need to wash my dishes in the bathroom sink will be AMAZING.
We have had some pretty good weather, it has been warmer though still cold. We are at least on the plus side of the thermometer, until you factor in the windchill.
Excluding yesterday and today. Both days are grey and dreary. Yesterday with rain. Today with the threat of dusting snowflakes.
It made for some difficult sads yesterday. No matter what I did I couldn’t shake them.
It got me thinking once I finally shook the blues. I want to have more mood centering, inspiring things around at eye level.
It’s tough because I have a kiddo running around so I have to choose carefully what I have with in her reach.
I also have a housemate who doesn’t know how to keep her peanut gallery mouth shut. Especially when it comes to ruining my good feels but I’m prepared to tell her where to shove it.
My thinking is quotes and pictures are going to be the best thing to use. Using washi I can tape things to the wall. Except where can I find said inspiring pictures and such?
I see a lot of great photos on Instagram but they’re not mine. I have yet to come across great magazines or any non online media with the same kind of content.
I know it exists, so where do you find your inspiration offline?
What helps keep you centered and present?
