Hibernating and Moving Things Around

It's a blustery, rainy day here in SW Washington. The weather man (or am I supposed to say weather person? I know how important it is to be politically correct.) says we'll have 3 inches of rain by tomorrow morning. That's a lot! I'm hibernating today. It's a good day for soup.

I've decided to move my sewing area from my bedroom upstairs to the corner of my dining room downstairs. It will be right next to my computer table. I can look out the window while I sew. I also figure if I have the stuff in front of me all the time I will get motivated. The light here is really nice too so I think it will be a pleasant workplace.

I'm making my bedroom into a pretty girly room instead of a sewing room with a bed in it. Once the sewing table is gone I'm moving in a vintage dresser. I have a bookcase headboard on my bed which I'm going to paint white. Then, as funds allow, I'll start adding pretties like a new bedspread, curtains, pictures, etc. I want my room to be a sanctuary - someplace that I can go to for rest, to study my Bible, and read. My bedrooms have never been pretty. Every other room in the house got decorated but the bedroom was just a place for sleeping. I don't know what finally made me change my mind about that but I'm glad that I did.

Hibernating sounds SOOOOOO good right now. And a comfy place to sit and read and listen to God is perfect also.

My sun room has been my sanctuary for most of this difficult year, but now it's really getting COLD out there since it's not heated. I do have a small heater and I will use that for a few more weeks and then I need to make a "nest" somewhere in the house. :)
