This morning I started promptly at 6am, was at Home Depot by 7 (to buy at lemon tree that I decided I absolutely had to have at 6am), had painted a fence by 8am (sounds weirder than it was and it was spray paint; I freaking love spray paint) and by 9am was over this day already.
That was, until I walked into the garage and saw we still had one last box to unpack. Just when I’m positive I couldn’t possibly own any more crap, another box materializes.
But then I got excited. What could it be? More dresses? Suddenly I couldn’t wait to get it opened.
How did I not notice we lived in a library before we left Texas. The last book I read that was actually made out of paper was probably over four years ago.
So as I unpacked (and was heckled for my
slowness incredible accuracy), I started to wonder where exactly these new found books were going to go. And then on a sidenote, wondered why we have four copies of Runaway Jury by John Grissom. Honestly, who even needs one copy?
I had set up a reading nook under the stairs the other day, but quickly realized that while antiques add an amazing aesthetic value, they’re a horrible option when aiming for comfort.
So this time I set out to create a more comfortable sitting/reading area in our bedroom.
I had to work within a budget of $0 on this improptu project, so I, once again, went shopping in my garage.
I remembered seeing a table of some sort in there fairly recently, so that combined with some vintage Vogue magazines, I was still within my budget.
Oh, and some granite coasters I had made from leftover granite from the kitchen remodel.
So for the rest of the day, I’m going to sit in this chair, read non-paper books on kindle and drink margaritas.
