Now, that's not to say that there isn't a certain level of stress that comes from living in "the house of unfinished projects." One project that is getting closer to completion is this desk in the dining room. I last blogged about this in December when I explained what I wanted to do and again when Earl built the desk. Right before the bathroom broke!
As you can see, the desk has finally been painted! It's only this clear because I know I will need the space for Easter. How do you like my pastel Easter vases that I got at Dollar Tree? They'll be on the dining table. The skirt on my desk is a temporary one. When I do the big muslin curtain project, I'll do a matching skirt for the desk. I'm getting closer though! So... two things needed here: 1) curtain walls and 2) fresh wall paint in cream. It's already so improved just with this part done. Very calm and peaceful.
In other project news, the bathroom is 99% done and it is fully funtional! YAY! It just needs a little trim which I hope I can install before Sunday, but if not, it's okay. Yes, it's okay. I'm tired of my house (or my embarassment about my house) keeping me from enjoying the people in my life. Spring break has been so nice- I'm getting a lot done. There's more too, but I'll talk about it next week.
I'm not the only one who has been spiffing up her home. Look what the ants under the driveway have been up to:
These stuctures are nothing but dirt! I thought they were weeds covered with dirt, but no-they're just dirt and they crumble if you touch them (er, sorry about that, ant friends). Aren't they amazing? I want to learn more about what they're called. Up till this, the most complicated thing I've seen from those ants were mounds that looked like volcanoes. I suppose I should call an exterminator, but they don't really bother anyone and I find them so interesting!
Happy Easter, everyone! Remember, I'm setting out the ham at one o'clock. If you need directions, just let me know! Hugs to all.
