T Minus 2

Thanksgiving Day is coming. The turkey is thawing, my stomach is grumbling, and not a thing has been packed. That's something to be concerned about, as we're heading out tomorrow morning,going over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house. Grandfather's, too, down near Bloomington, Indiana. And still, she blogs. Not moving from the computer.

I started my morning at the computer. As I sipped my coffee and checked the Book of Faces, I looked around my living room and almost lost my appetite for whole wheat Cream of Wheat with butter and cinnamon sugar. (Yum. You must try this sometime.) Our sad, pathetic living room, she of the lovely fireplace and gorgeous windows, but whose sofa and chair should have been hauled out to the curb 5 years ago....

But I was online! Surely there would be some help there, some way to find information that would help me design a fresh, new living space...Yeah, not so much. I mean, it's there. But it's basic-ness left me looking for more. See, I already know that stuff. I need the stuff I don't know.

Like arranging furniture. Like choosing furniture. Like finding the computer cable for my camera, so I can share pictures of this space. The tough stuff.

I'm OK with choosing colors; in fact, the walls are done. They have been for 2 years; shade of green, like the fields and farms around us. The floors were done just before them; wooden floors that "bring in" the woodsy view outside the windows. It just needs refining; furnishing, and accessorizing, and lighting.

So, if you're inclined, stay tuned. I'll be asking some opinions very shortly...

Can you upload photos from your smartphone? (No cord required.)

Glad to see you blogging again!
