I am thankful to have a job that allows me to go home for work everyday. We live only a few miles from where I work, so I have about 40 minutes or so to spend time with the furballs, grab something to eat, and run whatever errands I have.
Today, I came to the conclusion that life around these parts is not getting any less busy. It will probably only get more hectic! So, in an effort to make sure I get to do the things I love (working on our house, decorating, crafting, etc), I have started a little project during the month of March.
A little something I like to call Home for Lunch.
In order to get my ongoing projects finished, and my upcoming projects started, I am going to devote a little time each day to working on them. This time is going to be while I am home for lunch everyday. I normally watch some mind numbing television show, and waste away this little break in my day. Starting today, I will try to do one little project around the house, or work on a portion of a much larger project, hopefully making a much needed dent in our ever-growing to do list.
For my first day home for lunch, I did a little plant project. I stopped by the nursery next door to where I work to pick up some succulents - my favorite indoor plants. They are beautiful, and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. (And, best of all, they take very little attention and care, just a little water every now and then).
Today, I found a burro's tail for just under $4. Using a hanging pot and hook I already had on hand, I started a little vertical succulent garden in my home office/craft room.
I plan to add more plants slowly and eventually have a great plant wall to gaze at while I am working and sewing!
Here's a sneak peek of the fun, whimsical curtains in my new office/craft room. Yep, those are little owls. There's squirrels too! As more projects start getting done via Home for Lunch I hope to share more progress on the space! Until next time, enjoy your lunch!
