21 Random Things…

My head has been everywhere lately. Literally. I’m jumping from one project to the next and then back to the original thing I started with, only to have forgotten something in between. It’s fun, and I truly enjoy multitasking, but today I kind of want to stay in one place and enjoy that one single beautiful thing. I know you get it. We’ve all been there.

So today, I thought I’d share 21 random things that have been popping in and out of my head… enjoy!

1. The Fixer Upper.

2. Oh. My Word. The Fixer Upper.

3. It requires my immediate attention, 24/ 7.

4. I love the Fixer Upper. It’s fun and beautiful and we’re almost finished.

5. Collecting the remaining items for the Fixer Upper: cabinet hardware, pendant lighting, etc.

6. Fall. I love fall. Fall decorating is fun and lovely and peaceful. And I need to start doing more of it.

7. I haven’t posted for five days. Whoops. Somewhere in between the first five things, I forgot about it.

8. Projects. Big projects, little projects, painting projects, they’re about to be running out of my ears.

9. Hold me.

10. Two kittens have taken up residence in our home. Luckily, my sister in law has taken the third. They’re black and fuzzy and adorable. And I love them.

11. Building this business, and the places it could go, consumes my mind.

12. Writing, lots of writing, lots to share.

13. A booth. We have a booth. And it’s awesome and amazing… and basically empty.

14. Must fill booth.

15. Our house slightly resembles a disaster zone, and the repair man is coming today to fix our dishwasher. #thirdworldproblems

16. The office is getting better, but we need to work on a few more projects.

17. Planning, lots of future planning.

18. The Vintage Whites Market, more on that later.

19. I need an assistant. I need another me.

20. Two large, full crates of peaches are waiting to be canned.

21. Finishing the fixer upper.

And there you go. Aren’t you glad you read today’s post? 😀

Now, I’m off to run back up to the Fixer Upper. I’ll be sharing an update soon, but the hardwood flooring is finished, the cabinets are installed, the countertops are in (not installed) and we’re making progress. Tile goes in next week.

Be back soon, like tomorrow. It’s a two post sort of day!

  1. Haha I think in 15 you meant #firstworldproblems! We went three months without a DW…just got a new one and it’s sooooo wonderful not having to listen to my kids bicker over whose turn it is to wash the dishes! LOL If it makes you feel any better, my mind has been running through a hundred things lately too! So many projects and not enough hours in the day!

  2. I totally get it! Like clock-work for the past year I have been waking up at 3 am every.single.night.(early morning I suppose) with my mind going 100 miles per minute, but I enjoy it (not the lack of the sleep) but multi-tasking, I always do best when a million things are going on haha weird! Good luck on your list =) xoxo ~Ashley

  3. I’m so glad I read today’s post! Always glad to be reminded mine isn’t the only mind that works like 3 helicopters on steroids.(Husbands description.) Looking forward to the finished products of all you have going. (=

  4. Oh my gosh! I am so glad I am not the only one with my Energizer Bunny thoughts! It is a good thing to practice productive procrastination! I am a firm believer in the process of when you get sick of one project, move over to another, and when you are sick of that one, move back to the project you left! It makes each project better!~Michelle

  5. Other than #10, 14 and a lack of cute kittens this could be my list. Trade you a couple full grown cats who like to fight in our woods, and our vintage building that has been sitting for a couple years with no action, for baby felines and a fixer upper almost done? Now sure that would ease your load any though.
