Yesterday, I walked you through my home…decorated with great
care for Christmas and all decor was perfect until this happened:


My sweet husband scheduled a painting and carpeting makeover
of our master bedroom and bath right in the middle of Christmas, weddings,
babies, and such.  I know I am going to
love it when we get to the end, but for at least another week, I am dressing
for work out of the pile of clothes in the living room. One thing I have noticed with age is that my flexibility has gone out the window.  I really like status quo in my schedule…unexpected change does not fair well at first.  It is the longest I have postponed exercise since last May,
but I am not really sure where my shoes are…I lost my undergarments a couple of
days ago (poor planning)….SIGH…under construction is my life! 

How do I face it…as always, to find a bright side.  When I was dragging my clothes like dead
bodies from the closet to the living room, I actually discovered some treasures
I forgot I owned.  The scarf above was a morsel
found in a consignment shop a couple of years ago…and it fell on the floor
about the same time as the pile arrived with the yellow cardigan in it (pictured below).  Presto Chango!!…an outfit not worn before by
me.  Now, my goal is for the next seven
mornings to look for items I have not worn in a while.  I will force my attitude to go from grumbling
to creating. 
It’s all in the focus, girls.  When all around you is chaos, find a focal
point which brings joy and peace.  It can
be done!

 If all goes well this weekend, I
will have some new and interesting posts for you next week…also, I hear a
significant cold front is on the way to my city….YES!  I so hope it happens on Sunday night as
planned… However, I am just not sure which pile has coats at the bottom!
Have a fabulous Friday!
