in that top picture you can sort of see that i put an old rag rug on my dining room table. hey. it's my house. i washed it first. i don't know if i like it yet. which brings me to my first burning topic. when you do stuff around your house like hang a picture of move furniture or even the smallest thing like put a candle on one table rather than the other do you go through a transition period where you aren't sure if it's the right spot or change and each time you walk by it you assess whether it's right or not and sometimes you know it's wrong because you have a gut feeling about it but then you still have to walk by it for a week or two before realizing it's driving you crazy and moving it somewhere else?
that was a long sentence.
and now you know that i am a complete lunatic and perhaps in need of OCD drugs.
and please please please let me clarify. there is nothing perfect about my house or my wall decor or my furniture arrangement. this is no decorator's museum. BE-LIEVE ME. and yet, i am guilty of the behavior outlined above. the other thought occuring to me just now is that maybe i need to find something more meaningful to do with my life like focus on homelessness and hunger and such. quickly moving on.
second picture: making pillows for renegade (those are buckwheat hulls on the pillows). although yesterday i felt like total doodoo and had a headache like a dagger through my right eyeball and got next to nothing done. i think it's because i ate such a load of crap the day prior like too much pizza and grocery store birthday cake. so yesterday i tried to eat better. this involved that veg/pasta thing above plus homemade bread and hummus and fruit.
and just in case you missed it here's a picture of one of our baby chicks. we moved them out of their box in the laundry room and into their coop yesterday. they love their new place.
