I hope today was a great Monday for all. The beginning of the week some dread because they will be heading back to work after a weekend home relaxing and spending time with family and having fun. I very much understand that sentiment. I view my Monday's a little differently. Monday is my day to get the house back in order after everyone else in the house goes back to school and work. I start on my chores and get my menu squared away for the week and double check my ingredients for recipes I have planned. I go to town on Monday afternoon's and use that chance to get any groceries I may need. Living in a rural area it feels and often we do drive all the time so if I can cut down on any unnecessary trips I do. It feels good to have everything lined out from the beginning for the week.
Now that we are not doing any "heavy" remodeling which has been our normal for so many years I am appreciating the small projects or what I call fine tuning around our home. This weekend after we installed the counter tops I realized that the cats needed a place of their very own. I do not appreciate them laying on my sewing nearly as much as they do :) They are very well loved but I wanted them to have their own space by a window that they wouldn't get shooed out of. Soooo my dh got a shelf and brackets out of the garage and we made them their very own window seat! I realize having this stuff laying about in the garage is not realistic for everyone but please remember we have been remodeling for oh lets see about 10-11 yrs. off and on between two houses so we have a lot of things in the garage. Another "normal" for us until we clean out the garage...
Back to the cats. Here is the before:
