A change of scenery...

After returning from two hectic weeks away and facing a mountain of work for the next few months that will keep us put, Jeff and I decided that we might as well change the look of our living room to freshen things up! Okay, I decided, Jeff obliged, our friends and neighbors got on board and gave us curtains, and pillows, muscle power, design advice and good cheer! We picked the new paint color on Saturday, started painting that afternoon, applied the second coat Sunday morning (Jeff is fast!) and had all the furniture in place last night. It feels like a whole new living room, and I love it. I spent the morning answering e-mails in the bright sunshine and basking in the beauty that is this new space. All our furniture looks different and the room feels different and it makes me really believe in that old saying that "sometimes a change is as good as a break".

In fact yesterday, I also changed scenery by working in a coffee shop, and the few hours that I was away from home, were so productive! New sights, new smells, new energy....and a new living room. I think this change has got me jazzed up, which is a good thing, because I have a lot of writing to do!

I love that you've changed things around. I thought I was the only one to do that. Tomorrow, I'll try writing in a whole new locale too.
