About Me

Lucky me. I get to have surgery on my finger this week!

It seems like such a silly procedure but I have a cyst on my middle left finger and it has been bothering me for over six months. I finally asked my foot doctor if he knew what it was and he immediately diagnosed it.

Of course, he told me I had to see the hand doctor and I assumed it would be a simple procedure. But on Tuesday they need to cut open my finger and clean up the joint to solve the problem and it’s a lot more involved than I ever imagined.

Lucky me. Aargh.

The only inconvenience is using a keyboard for the next week. So if you see any typos please know they were likely made with my left hand!

My Latest Project

My Latest Project

I mentioned last week that we had a big sale and pretty much sold out in the first hour. Over the years I accumulated a lot of things for our home and it finally came time to get rid of some things.

More like a lot of things.

The Carriage House was full of things and I needed to clear it out since we are turning the Carriage House into a workout room.

This is our current workout room and it’s too small.

But it would make an adorable room for grandkids, right?

Here is the Carriage House after the sale but as you can see, I still have some work to do! I need to get creative with our storage space in the house. But I am getting there!

The Carriage House shortly after the big sale. It still needs lots of cleaning.

The gym flooring arrives this week and the additional equipment is on its way. I am so excited to move to this new location and share this journey.

There will be some surprises!

My Biggest Challenge This Week

You might have thought having surgery on my finger was going to be my biggest challenge.

But no!

Two months ago I fell down the basement stairs. Note to self, don’t ever walk down the stairs carrying a carpet cleaner machine in one hand and a gallon of cleaner in the other …

My ankle still hasn’t healed and I finally had an MRI. The results came back and the good news is … no surgery! But I will be wearing this boot for a few weeks (or months), taking a few steroids, and doing physical therapy.

Let’s hope this will be the end of constant pain!

And the return to matching shoes.

This week's to do list.
  • Finish emptying the Carriage House
  • Start Valentine’s Day Craft projects
  • Head to Northern California to visit our kids and grandson

Such a fun week of celebrating the New Year! I shared our remodeled bedroom and new decor in the living room. I also shared my favorite Pear Bread Recipe and how to remodel a coffee table. And we can’t forget my one-minute wreath and the new additions to the beach house!

This week I will be sharing my Valentine’s Day ideas and we have cookies, apothecary jars, a beautiful table, and two crafts. I cannot wait!
