We three (above mentioned) Smith Folk are all hanging out at home today. I opted not to go to the retreat with Steve because, although Sarah’s fever is down this morning, she’s still acting sluggish and sickish. (Those are complex medical terms, if you’re wondering.)
And since I’m still not feeling up to par myself, a sick day at home with my daughter and my doggie is just what the doctor ordered.
It occurred to me last night after I posted the chaotic bathroom pictures that I didn’t explain that those are pictures from almost a week ago. We actually don’t have it quite that bad at the moment.
Here’s a glimpse of the progress so far.
We’re eventually going to hang “something” under the lights in the middle; just haven’t decided what “something” might look like. A clock? A picture? A floral thingie? Just don’t know.
When the camera zooms out a little though, you can that this is still very much a work in progress.
And speaking of the bathroom, Pam T. left a comment asking if we liked having a corner shower.
Pam, I guess I haven’t really thought much about it since that’s what was waiting for us when we moved in to this house. But actually, we like it pretty well; it’s about 30% bigger than our old shower (which was teeny) and so we feel blessed with space, even though it’s not as big as a full tub shower would be. But I would have no hesitation recommending it to you and, as you said, it is a huge space saver! (Which is always a good thing.)
And finally (before I head back to bed for my Sick Lady Nap), I wanted to point your attention to a blog I just became aware of that focuses on a group of women who get together and make quilts to send to orphans in India. We hear so much bad, negative and depressing news these days; it’s especially heartening to read about people who take time out of their lives to mend and warm the hearts of small, broken children in a world far away.
Take a look and be inspired!
