Fortunately, the Husband and I stuck a date night in there. I think the amount we talked, and the enthusiasm with which we talked spoke volumes for how busy I've been.
Last night, when I got home from my meeting and worship practice at 9:30, the Husband wasn't there. On the nights I'm out-and-about, he takes advantage of my absence to spend some time with friends doing things I have no interest in. Translation. He plays video games and talks about buildings and all other matters related to civil engineering. So, when I got home, he wasn't there, but he had been.
Our new lamp was on. The house looked cozy. There was something different.
Can you see it?
Yes, there's a plant. And a lamp. And a pile of books from the library. But all of those things had been there when I left. Yes, the chairs are covered differently than when you last saw them, but that's a result of the happenings recounted in this post.
There's something else, something that makes an even bigger impact.
Curtains! On a proper curtain rod!
At least, no more twine on this window. Which is good, because the nails I used to hang the twine on this particular window weren't strong enough and the whole set of curtains came a-tumbling almost a month ago and I never bothered to put them back up. Besides, these curtains look so much better than the red ones I had up before.
The space feels extra cozy now, especially with the new lamp with its soft light.
