Sometimes to renew I find a slight change can make the biggest difference. Yesterday I was talking about making a micro-movement. So today I did. Actually, I did two.
After a rather successful trip to the auto garage, we dodged in to Canadian Tire. For my American, or other worldly pals, this place is the be-all-end-all of “MAN-STORE”. They have everything for your car, tools, sporting goods, fishing, hunting .. and somewhere in the middle, I think to keep the significant other content they have paint, and some home decor items. Well, we picked up the necessary item, and as I was perusing the aisles for the possibility to amend the problematic lack of tall shelves in our kitchen, Little Pea fell asleep in the car-cart. (one of those funny carts that has the car attached) He’s been feeling a little ill, so this impromptu nap didn’t really shock me. Peach and I took advantage of this nap, and headed over to the paint department. Hundreds of paint chips awaited us. We picked up about thirty or so. One step down. Okay, truthfully I picked thirty, she picked an atrocious collection of fuchsia, deep plum, chocolate, orange, and one white. Peach loves paint chips as much as I do. She’s a born decorator.
I am feeling a little less overwhelmed. More inspired to dig in and start stripping wallpaper than I was twenty-four hours ago.
Oh my other baby step … I finally moved the big chair to the corner beside the fireplace where it’s supposed to be. It was moved because of the Christmas tree. It helped that I found the perfect basket ottoman for half price. So yes, I admit, I needed a little push – but the outcome was well worth it! Now only if little painting fairies would enter at night and paint the place. Oh wouldn’t that be lovely.
