Day 302: Trimming the tree and other home improvements

Christmas in July is coming together quite nicely.

I put up the Christmas tree today, and pulled a few decorations. I want to make sure I’m in the holiday spirit before the party.

I also wanted to do a few fix up projects before my guests arrive.

I woke up early and got right to work. I have a misting system I bought last summer but never put up. Now I decided was the time. I had to make sure my guest are comfortable I thought.

It’s been really hot the past few days but since I was up early I thought I could get it done before the triple digits set in.

It was pretty easy to do, which makes me wonder why I waited so long to do it. Attach the hose and nail the brackets around the hose… easy. I got it up and turned it on to check out my handy work.

It looked pretty good. But there was one that was dripping instead of misting. Instead of turning off the water I decided to work on it while the water was flowing.

The result was me getting soaked, but I did get it fixed and now I’m feeling like Superwoman.

With the misters and the chaise, I can actually enjoy my back patio which didn’t happen last summer… there’s nothing stopping me.

A pool would be nice, but that’s not exactly on the agenda… and not something I can do myself so I guess it’ll have to wait.

From there it was off for a little cat sitting for the BFF, then on to the grocery store.

I have been gone so much the past month I didn’t even bother buying groceries. There was no point, because everything would have gone bad.

I have to say, there is something liberating and freeing about actually having food in the fridge to eat.

Sounds kind of funny, but it’s true. When there’s something to eat in your house you aren’t a slave to the scraps that have been left over from the past 6 months…. or what may be open when you decide to eat.

The past week, when I’ve been hungry I’ve had to eat almonds and toast with butter because it’s all I had left in the house.

I was starting to feel like I was being held hostage, but it’s pretty much all my own fault. But its not anything I would change.

So now it’s time to wind down and get ready for the week ahead of me. A week that seems promising. We should have an answer to who will be working with us in a matter of days.

I’m actually energized about work right now. I can’t believe it’s only been a week with my new boss, and the dramatic difference in my attitude.

I am excited to get back to producing again, and happy to be going to work for someone who appreciates me and the work I do.

What a difference 4 days makes. I feel like I’ve been let out of prison! And its transferred to my private life as well.

Here’s to a new lease on life!
