Tackle it Tuesday–Calendars, Time, Grief

Phil received a Pottery Barn Daily System for his birthday and the wall is now wired and Phil installed this very cool, very useful calendar, corkboard, whiteboard, charging station, and digital frame. (No pics yet!)

As if I need more reason to love this thing?
So.

Speaking of calendars…how many of you have made time to enjoy life?

Quit being so busy. Quit overbooking yourself and your family. Take control of your time and vow to spend time with those you love and enjoy. Don’t you know how fast it all goes by?

I lost some very important people in the past few years and it’s now, Christmas season, when I tend to miss them most because they were so big a part of my Christmases. The void is unfillable. The grief is overwhelming at times. And I know how many times I’ve wished I would’ve spent a little more time with them. I don’t remember what I did instead of visiting them and making memories, all I know is the memories aren’t there because I chose to do other things instead. Unimportant things.

I want that to change for the people I still have here to love.

Tackle it Tuesday–Hanging Stuff

* * *

This week. I hung things up. Alright. Phil hung things up. But I stood nearby handing him screws, drills, levels, and pencils. So I helped. And I told him where to put things.
I don’t have before pictures this week. Mostly because pictures of blank walls would be, well, stupid.

Stuff on the downstairs powder room walls.

A hook with no lantern.
A mirror and a sign in the hall. Phil promptly informed me that now he has to stare at his crotch every time he walks down the hall.
I bought a frame that’s too small for the photo I intended for it because I have no brain.

Bought the right sized frame for this one, but couldn’t figure out a wall to put it on.
Coffee for the kitchen.
Sunflowers. Because I live in the Sunflower house.
More downstairs powder room stuff. That wrapped canvas? Compliments of ZaZa Gallery. (Blog coming soon about the awesomeness of it!) I need 3 more for the powder room and more for other rooms.

Inspiration for the hallway. Other than Phil’s crotch in the mirror.

Reminder for the dining room. Because I forget and argue.
Reminder in the living room. Because God is unbelievable and He makes me work really hard. And I still have a hard time believing Him.

I did not take down my cute little jack-o-lanterns.
And I made Pineapple Pork.
