Almost put "Happy Monday" as today is my monday. Currently have an awful cough that kept me home on Monday, thus my whole week feels out of order now. The beautiful photo above is helping me overcome the odd-week-sensation.
These cozy images from shine design fit the mood of the morning perfectly. I have been up since 4:15 AM and have done tasks around the home that would make flylady proud: got up, showered, dressed to shoes, put makeup on, unloaded the dishwasher, wiped down the kitchen counters, made a smoothie for breakfast, folded laundry from the dryer and put another load into the dryer, and finally sat down with a smoothie to peruse blogs. And it's only 5:30. Yeah.... in the morning.
Work has been a bit intense for the past two weeks - so I've had little time or energy when at home to catch up on blog reading much less make a dent in the books stacked up everywhere....which is why it feels so luxurious this very moment to sip a smoothie and read blogs. Feels like I've been away from friends/bloggers way too long!
To make the day more perfect, Lori - who is The 10 Cent Designer, has graciously allowed me to feature one of her blog posts here from her new blog. This "after" living room (shown above) is about the most beautiful living room I have ever seen. Lori's blog has such a pretty sidebar with the cutest drawing of herself and links to her flickr photos (photos that amaze me every day!).
