Random Thoughts on January 4th.

What happened to winter???
For the past week, it's been 75 - 80 degrees outside.
Ultimate California weather.

Although it's hot outside,
the temperature inside my house is 64 degrees.
It seems stupid to run the heater when feels like summer.

I tried opening the doors to let hot air in.
Didn't work.
I'm wearing sweaters and drinking hot chocolate
and pretending there's a blizzard outside.
I bet you wish you could trade places, huh!

Today is my maiden voyage on Craig's List.
Can you believe I've never been on that site?
I'm getting Eden to help me list sofas and bedroom furniture.
We are using the money for his  Eagle Scout project.

For sale:

Trundle Bed - perfect for a boy's room, or a guest room.

Bookcases - handcrafted by Matt.
I'm sad we no longer have no place to put these.

Down Sofa - I designed this slipcover myself.  It hides an Ethan Allen sofa that was once owned by my Great Aunt.

I'm shopping my house today and rearranging.
I like this spot -- a little ledge on the way into our TV room.

Pretty paper in a frame,
cardboard alphabet letters in a jar,
old books,
and a chalk dog.
Why do these things make me smile so much?

I decided to move my office upstairs to the TV room.
I think my family is going to have a cow when they see the change.
They won't like sharing that space with me.
We all know I have slob issues when it comes to my office.
But we need a guest bedroom.
People never visit because there's no play to sleep.

I can hardly wait until 8:00 p.m.
Downton Abby is on T.V.
I'm hooked.
Last week I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. watching Season I.
Masterpiece Theatre is the best.

What did you do today?

I love shopping in my own house. Greg finished his shelf-masterpiece so we've been doing a lot of that lately to fill the new spaces.

I wish my day was as productive as yours! I hit the gym and cleaned the house but you wouldn't be able to tell from looking at it.

I wish I was closer and could buy that trundle bed from you! We just moved into our house in TX and we need a guest bed that doesn't take up too much room! That would be!
When my sister was here for Christmas she introduced me to Downton it. I am hooked for sure.
Happy New Year!

OH yes, I had the same issue with the cold house. I did not know how nice it was until someone came to my door. Then I forced my boys to play outside.
I love Southern California weather.
Although, it is very strange that I had my heater on when it is so warm outside. Oh well. I'll take it.

it has been above 0 here all month. weird for around here. not much snow. must be global warming!
I need to list some stuff on kijiji- (that's our craigslist) so much to do. I keep thinking when the kids are in school I will get busy- they start on Monday. can't wait!

I can't believe you've never been on craigslist! I've bought and sold many things there. It's addicting.

What's Eden's going to do for his Eagle Scout project?

Don't you just love Downton Abbey? I'm going to be Maggie Smith when I grow up.
