B-Day (for book club day)

Just a quick check in before I run out to buy flowers and wine. I have no idea if wine is what I should be serving at an afternoon book club with women. I don’t drink so the whole thing is slightly mysterious to me. It seems that whenever I have it, people are pleased and it gets consumed so I’ll go throw myself on the mercy of the Trader Joe’s sommelier.

The epic bookcase project has been completed. There are little details to complete, such as affixing the bookcase to the walls, but you gotta prioritize in a situation like this. I can go back and do those little things later. Like next year.

I did do some little details like re-hanging pictures that I had taken down for painting. It gave me a chance to kind of reevaluate if I still wanted them all or if it was time to freshen things up a little.

It’s funny when you take a step back at this and look at your things in a new light. No matter how much I’d like to think I have a sophisticated, European, modern taste; I just realize that I fall more into the “rustic hippy” camp. My house is always going to look like the place where you could stretch out and take a nap on the sofa. Which isn’t a bad thing at all.

Now I just need to claim my dining room table back from the cat and I’ll be ready to feed people again!

I did it. Happy Valentine’s day folks.

For a recap: this whole makeover started on Monday.

    You did it! not only are the bookcases great but you filled them very nicely! No way would anyone believe how fast you did all this. Rustic Hippy sounds comfy. You just might want to get those attached before next year, dogs, cats, earthquakes, high winds…
