Our Bodacious Staycation Has Begun

 


A much needed rainy day. Recaffeinating (is that even a word?) with an iced coffee in a quart size mason jar. Dancing to Fleetwood Mac while rearranging and organizing the Bodacious DIY Dog Mom Workshop and closet. Housework. Then, whipping up a scrumptious surprise dinner for Lisa because she'll officially be on a staycation for a week. Total. Bliss.

Painting Our Dining Room Inspired Us To Step Out Of The Box With Darker Shades

 


Our home office is finally done! I spent a few hours focusing on final touches yesterday. That got done. I wanted to put our home office back together by the time Lisa got home, but I had to tend to an unexpected happening. Named Lennie. You can read about that here

A Happy Ending For Lennie

 


One of the features we instantly fell in love with when we bought our house in February of this year was the screened-in raised back porch. It's quiet. Tranquil. Our kids love laying in the sun. And, we wouldn't have to worry about bugs and critters getting in. We've had a few stink bugs and the occasional wasp sneak in, but that's it. Until today.

A Day Of Normality

 

Today was the day that I was supposed to finish painting our home office. However. It was dark and rainy. The home office only has a single window. If there is no sun, the lighting sucks for painting. Instead of painting, I caught up on work at home Dog Mom stuff, baking, housework, organized the pantry and linen closets, and other miscellaneous stuff.

One More Week Until Staycation Begins

 

It has been a chaotic couple of weeks. Lisa covered the second shift in her department a couple of weeks ago. Last week, she covered the first shift. This coming week with the exception of tomorrow, she works her normal schedule. Then, she's on staycation for a week. We are counting the days.

It Will Be 2 Months Tomorrow...

 


Lisa and I sat on our back porch last night after dinner. We lingered. It was a gorgeous Fall evening. Our solar lights kicked on. It was quiet. Peaceful. There was a little breeze. At times, it was snowing leaves. We joked about having to leaf blow and vacuum the leaves in both of our backyards. After a short bout of silence, I blurted out a thought that hit my brain quite suddenly.

We Decided To Eliminate The Deadlines On Our Big Bodacious Painting Project



About a month ago, Lisa and I had a conversation about our upcoming Big Bodacious Painting Project. At the time, Lisa put in for a week's vacation (staycation) in the middle of October and it got approved. Our original plan was to tackle all of our indoor painting during that time frame. However. I wanted to get it all done before her staycation. There was a reason for this.
