Happy New Year, I'm still here! I was off to a great start this year. Organizing, rearranging accessories, purging, zhushing and fluffing and then bam! - no sooner had I gotten my boys back in school and started to tackle the mountain of paperwork in my office, my back went OUT. Like totally down and out. On January 18, after my morning workout, I bent over to pick something up off the counter, not even the floor, and something twinged and by the end of the day I couldn't sit. I am a bookkeeper, I need to sit!!! I have been battling to get "back" to normal ever since with daily visits to the chiropractor and just taking it easy. Today is the first day I have felt little to no pain. Yay! So now I can actually sit at the computer and compose a post!
On a good note, while I have been laid up in bed, I discovered Downton Abbey. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this show! I was able to stream it through Amazon on my Kindle Fire. (Love my KF as well!) I can't get enough of it. So good!
I've also discovered Houzz.com! OMG, where has it been all my life?!?! Apparently right there under my nose but I have just discovered it so it has become a serious addiction. I had always seen pictures sourced from there but never really ventured over to check it out and now I have Ideabooks out the wazoo and want to build another, more contemporary house. Oh dear... And I've also recently joined Pinterest but since I am more of a house junkie I don't play on it as much.
This week I am getting started on our pool plans! If we want that sucker in by summer we better get cracking! Be on the lookout for a pool post from me. Until then, here are a few pictures that are inspiring me at the moment.
