I was born to hibernate
That was the text I sent my daughter this past week after she told me the early sunset time makes it easier to hibernate. Once the time changes each autumn, I seem to yawn a lot more.
Last week was spent re-doing the Study a little at a time. Well, on one particular day there was a great deal of moving and tweaking and the switching of objects from other rooms to the Study... but mostly it was a little at a time. I'll show more of the desk changes later.
All of the changing about came as I realized there were absolutely too many times I was using the coffee table in the living room as a desk instead of using... my desk. The Study sat empty quite often so some serious pondering was accomplished, not the least of which was accepting that no big quilting projects were going to be attempted anytime soon. One has to be realistic about their plans, you know.
So... the Study was tweaked and the desk completely revamped to make it easier for one who writes instead of sews. Just in case you think I'm completely daft (don't answer that), the intent for using Christopher's room once he moved out had always been as a sewing and craft room so well, that is what I did.
But it has taken over a year and a half to realize as the years progressed, I wasn't sewing and crafting as much as I once did. Unlike most sewers and quilters I know, I kinda' lost my interest. Not completely for I am certain the sewing machine will find its' way to the dining table as it did all those years we were homeschooling... but not enough to devote an entire room to it.
Sometimes it takes awhile to figure things out.
All that to say, I've been spending time tweaking the Study and quite like the results. More will be shared, perhaps in a My World this Week if I can take some good pictures. When one lives at the edge of a forest in November, good light is difficult to find so we may ended up using the dreaded flash on the camera.
The darker weather has also brought with it more curling up on the sofa after the dinner dishes are in the drainer, along with a book and sometimes a Maine Coon kitty. As long as I can stay awake. Yawn...
