This is NOT a resolution.
I don't make resolutions.
I do set goals. And then I try really hard to make them.
Oh my stars, that's just disappointment waiting to happen.
One GOAL was to have my upstairs office join the three clean bedrooms.
know that I'm taking this all step by step.
Have I mentioned I LOVE writing?
That I love working with Love Inspired?
That I can't wait to see how people react to this year's series:
First book due out in April, 2011: REUNITED HEARTS
Just love it.
And if you noticed that Men of Allegany County is a LIVE link, go ahead and follow it.
See where it leads. ;)
So here are the"BEFORE pics of my office:
Note the dead bees. Oops, wasps, sorry, Deb, I KNOW they're not bees. But they buzz like bees.
Anyway, I'm not going to tell you how long those bees, er... wasps have been dead.
Let me just say they are returning to their dust-like stage as we speak.
Now here are some "AFTER" shots:
Oops. There are no "after" shots yet.
I'm only half done.
Two garbage bags. Maybe three. I've stopped counting.
Three boxes of books.
One very ugly black enamel trimmed with gold gilt (Of course I'm not making that up.
Who on this earth would invent a description LIKE THAT???)
And the matching chair.
The chair is no longer with the desk by the road.
Obviously the desk IS that ugly.
Pics to come.
But, OH, what wonderful treasures I found!!! :)
And yet, oddly redeeming!
The following is what I planned to say WHEN THE TASK WAS DONE, with
a nice 'looky here, how nice is this???' picture, of course.
A little different. Just a tad.
Now, don't get confused. I have not been working in there.
Even I have some standards.
Nope, I'm working in the big old kitchen, under the light,
with the wood stove warming the day.
And the occasional harlequin bug tap dancing around the light.
Stupid bugs. An annoyance for sure.
Destined to go the way of the bees... I mean wasps.
And yet another reason why caulk is a WONDERFUL investment.
