Don’t you just sometimes want something to look good even if it doesn’t function any better or differently than what you already use? I have a perfectly fine yet perfectly boring and clunky typical store bought plastic 1 inch binder. What drives me crazy is the fact that I can’t bend the front cover all the way back. So, it lays on my tiny little desk top surface all sprawled out basically double the size of an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper. I have this idea that maybe, just maybe, if I make something that’s little more “me” that’ll it’ll force me to get stuff done. Is that a silly way of thinking or what?

My brother and sister-in-law gave me this old secretary desk and I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. If you follow me on Instagram, I shared it moons ago. Then, I shared it again recently because I was tagged to share a #trashure. I’ve always seen secretary desks out and about but, if I ever saw them at thrift stores or sales, it always seemed too pricey just for me to want to have a pretty thing. Either that or it was so cheap it meant I’d have to rebuild the entire thing. They knew I’d love it, transform it, and use it.

I’ll start off by saying I’m tired. Sweet Joe’s cooking up some food and I’m upstairs writing this post. This is real life as it’s Sunday, May 14 at 7:05 p.m. I’m happy and tired by the way. Not a glum tired. We worked in the yard ALL day and while I’d love to finish my secretary (it’s done!) and numerous other projects, I really need to get my butt in gear with the garden.
It isn’t anything special but, I’m proud of what we accomplished today and I hope you’re out there accomplishing what you need to get done. Not enough time in the day, right? Continue reading “Finally Getting The Garden Ready”
