This particular project has been going on forever. There have been weeks — no, months — when it felt that I was not making any progress at all. I’ve been slowed down repeatedly by jobs, family and other obligations — none of which I would have changed if given the opportunity, but it’s so good to finally see a little bit of a difference in this project!
After almost three years, I’ve been able to hang the “August Moon” sign I was given when my sister passed. Well, actually, I got my hubby to hang it. It’s over the window that my desk is now in front of. I can look out the window as I write and see if someone pulls into my driveway or watch the dogs running around outside.
One of the things I asked for of my sister’s was a huge bird house. Her hubby and kids kept it for many months before deciding I could have it. I would have certainly understood if they decided to keep it forever, but they were sweet enough to give it to little ol’ me! When I got it, I didn’t have a place for it and I had to put it in storage. Today, I got it out and brought it home. I was going to put it on the top shelf of my “desk”, but decided that I wouldn’t be able to see it well there and I want to be able to really enjoy it. I love bird houses! So, I put it on top of one of my white bookcases. I haven’t even begun to work on the bookcases, but someday, it will look great. It’s sitting between the door to the deck and a window.
It’s been ages since I vacuumed the walls in the house. The logs catch dust and it’s a big job to take care of all of them. I’ve started it, but if they look dusty in the photos, I haven’t gotten to that area yet. I didn’t dust the bird house before shooting the photo either and after a couple of years of storage, it probably needed it. I don’t care at this moment…I wanted to show them off.
