The other night after a long day of work and then more work, Rick and I relaxed before bed by watching a movie, but my fireplace mantle drew my attention and like a zombie I stood up and started to rearrange my mantle (see above: it is more busy than usual but I am a lush for candles and flowers).
This happens frequently, I will go into the bedroom to put away a sweater and then, an hour later, everything is out of the closet and put back with more order and tidiness. Do not get me started with moving furniture. Since we moved into our current home at Christmas time our bed has been in four positions in our bedroom. I currently love the new placement of the bed and furniture and plan to keep in that way (maybe). I know it’s a little manic but I find harmony in placing things in a thoughtful manner and making our home look pretty. Not perfect, but carefully carefree and cute, if that makes sense.
I hope I am not alone in the need to rearrange and organize…
On Saturday, I was looking for a hammer and found a blank canvas, in a few minutes I had the paints out, painted, cleaned up, found the hammer and was back to the current project. Later, in the evening Rick asked “where did you find that painting?” Uh… while looking for the hammer.
