Had to take some vacation time before I lost it, so I'm off until Monday! Looking forward to wrapping, mailing Christmas Cards, and finishing up the presents for my family. Throw in an upcoming Blues concert and viewing the newly released on DVD, Harry Potter and Star Trek movies and I am one happy vacationer. I have less than 20 cards to make so why did it take all day?? In an effort to make some life changes, one of which is to get organized, I had a carpenter come out today and he is building my kitties a poo poo palace. I have 2 cats and their poo stinks, they don't actually cover it with the litter, they toss the litter out of the box onto the carpet. I have had the litter in bathrooms and in my art room and it's all been a disaster. For the longest time now the litter has been in my beautiful powder room that I worked so hard to decorate. I faux painted the walls, got a new toilet and floor. So this is my not so lovely powder room:
And these are the doors I painted and got those cool twig handles for :
But they are not even attached, thanks to the litter box. So I decided to use this space:
And add this:
The hole was supposed to be smaller and higher up on the wall so the kitties can't kick the litter out. But I went to get a litter box, came back and this is what I found on returning: hole was cut. So I'm going with the flow. Here is how the drawer works:
There will be heavy plastic that hangs from the top and molding all around that I will eventually paint white. I'm not going to let myself regret doing this. Tell me it doesn't look terrible please!!! please!!! It cost very little and will streamline the whole poo thing. I'm looking to simplify!! Tomorrow I will post pics of the finished poo poo palace.
Speaking of Simplifying, since my birthday, Dec. 3, I have NOT SMOKED!!! Think of the money I have saved and the extra time I just bought on this planet!! For some reason this bday triggered a desire for positive change. Quitting cigarettes is VERY VERY HARD. WAAAAAAH. I know, I know, it's worth it. So I'm cleaning the inside and outside. teehee. Streamlining in the house, which will be an ongoing project and taking responsibility for my health. I guess I grew up with this last birthday, dammit. I hate when that happens. teehee. My friend PaulaBeth from Barn Owl Studios sent me a wise and beautiful canvas for my birthday, "Speak Your Truth":
I love it Beth, thank you so very much. xoSusan
