The morning light from the east window every morning reflecting off the carpet just brightens my spirits. I used to vacuum every day, sometimes twice because every piece of lint or sock fuzz would appear magically throughout the day. I thought it was a phobia and even my mom questioned me about my obsession. Now its difficult to see one speck of debris anywhere and I vacuum every other day (or so) because I know there has to be dirt somewhere however I don't HAVE to vacuum because it looks clean all the time. Anyway, all I am saying is, this carpet has allowed me more time to enjoy other things such as garden/yard work and it makes my home feel so much more cheerful. If you have been thinking of changing your dark carpeting, I encourage you to do so. If you are afraid Berber will seem too harsh for a home environment, it is just the opposite. All my fears are behind me, this carpet rocks! Thanks to DH I would have never entertained the idea of having Berber throughout the house.
Speaking of freeing up time to enjoy, I spent Saturday with my bud Laney shopping. We found a new bead studio where we are planning to attend a few classes. I have always wanted to do copper etching and am looking forward to learning this technique so I can make my own charms. We shopped till we dropped and enjoyed a light lunch at Panera, our favorite spot. I feel we worked off any unwanted calories :-)
It was a fun day. Thanks Laney!
Sunday was my brother's birthday so I went to see him for a bit. When I got home DH needed more lumber for the front porch project so I went with him. It was a rainy day on and off so I figured it was something to do since I wasn't in the mood to stitch. The front porch is finished except for painting and the formal entrance is getting its railings this week, then the new sidewalk. I really love the cobblestone look but it is too hard for people to walk on.The new one will require less or no maintenance so I'm all for that. The formal entrance has never had railings and is very uninviting so I am excited to see the end results and do a little landscaping. The only person who uses this entrance is the pizza guy,LOL. Everyone else comes to the back which I prefer.
I hope you enjoy your day!
