I spent yesterday day finishing off my cleaning and packing away the very last of the holiday decorations. Looking around Lemon Lane Cottage it feels like an old friend has returned. Life is winding back to normal and it's easy to fall in step with the quiet comfort that this old house brings.
Of course, I have a million and one plans running through my mind of what needs to be done in each room and what I want to accomplish in the weeks and months ahead. First and foremost is to finish painting the spare room upstairs that is to become my personal space. I can't wait to restore order in there and promise to share the progress once it looks like progress has been made. Right now it is just a jumble of discarded furniture, bits of torn down wallpaper and half painted walls.
For now, it's enough to just sit on the floor amidst the mess and place the furniture in my mind once again...dreaming is half the fun anyway. Don't you agree?
