Playoffs, Purging, and Providence
What’s going on with me today?
The Seahawks are playing the Redskins in the Playoffs at home (Quest Field in Seattle), that’s what. I love football and I love our stadium. The Washington Redskins apparently didn’t know what they were doing when they made a comment implying that Seattle mikes up the stadium. Have you been there and heard the volume of the guys in the rows around you? I have. It’s unreal. Miked up. I think not. My mom and her roommate are going. I’ll be watching the game on TV. I like to hear the commentary, even if it’s sometimes anti-Seahawks and ticks me off.
Meanwhile, I’ve taken down the artificial christmas tree and will be doing some early spring cleaning and reorganizing. Yesterday, I had a financial planner come talk with me, and guess what? She sews! Mostly home dec, but she sews! How divinely providential is that?
As she was leaving, we talked about how to decorate my front room. I think I have it figured out, finally. Since I’m going to be starting my own writing and editing business, how great would it be to have my front room be sort of a lounge or sitting room where I can meet with clients, without having to have them come all the way into my house, or upstairs into my office? So, some paint, some wainscoting or a chair rail, some valances and curtains, some furniture, and I’ll finally have a beautiful front room. I even have the furniture layout in my head. I’ll have to draw it out so I can start searching for the right pieces to fill up the room. I’m thinking a small love seat, a small round table and two chairs, or two easy chairs with a lower round coffee table, a bookshelf, and some warm lights. I already have the fabric for the valances that I’ll use in both the front room and the family room/dining area for continuity.
I’m inspired. It’s stormy outside but things are starting to liven up and prospects look hopeful for a good year, both financially and emotionally, for me. Inside, I’m full of ideas, and my body seems to be holding up well enough to allow me to implement some of them – slowly but surely.
More later! Go Hawks.
