Here is the "before":
And here is the after:
A job well done, if I do say so myself, and it only took two episodes of "Murder, She Wrote" to get it done. Makes me wonder why in the world I put it off so long. (Foolishness and mayhem is why...)
Today, I also checked something off my mental to-do list that is probably a lot more important: I had friends over. I called the elaborate (total sarcasm) affair a "Sack Lunch Social" - which basically means they brought their PB&J, can of soup, Subway or leftovers to my house for lunch. I provided dessert, beverages and background music. My friends came and went as their schedules allowed for work, etc and we had a great time. I didn't clean house (ok - I did shove the stuff that had been piled on the kitchen counter into another room) and I didn't spend hours prepping a meal.
But 6 ladies showed up with their soup and sandwiches and we just fellowshipped. And I was so refreshed.
Thank you to each and everyone of you that came over. Its been way too long since I've had uninterrupted adult conversation. *contented sigh*
And on top of that, God made the sun shine just for us. Cause that's just the way he rolls...
Now its starting to feel like spring.
