And then, alas, there are the days when I somehow manage to get nothing done. The days when I look at the clock and it’s 7:00 AM, and then I look again and it’s midnight.
Where do these days go? Such grand plans, all washed aside by…what?
Bruno had a teeth-cleaning appointment (he’s fine, just really tired), we went grocery shopping, and we bought wood for the chair rail. And…that’s it. How did that wind up taking 17 hours? I have no idea.
Here’s a reasonable list of things I’d like to get done before Friday:
Paint and install chair rail above the wallpaper.
Touch up paint on baseboard molding.
Go to IKEA; buy picture frames and window shades.
Frame some posters and hang them up.
• Cut window shades to fit, hang in living room.
Put the white cover back on the sofa.
• Empty small dresser in dining room, move to basement.
• Paint the antique oval mirror that’s been gathering dust in the closet for four years.
• Try out Kathleen’s stuffed delicata squash recipe.
• Write and send thank-you cards.
That’s not so bad. I can do this. I can, I can.
I am the queen of wasting time! I don’t know how I do it, but I can make lunch and a trip to Target take an entire day. It is on my list of things to conquer for the new year.
i ADORE that rap prints name! definitely want one…when i’m back from india.
That wallpaper is looking great!
I think if I really forced myself to stay away from the internet I would get so much more accomplished, if only work/email etc wasn’t computer-based these days! :/
you can doooo eet! Fun sounding week, actually. (that rap name poster is BOMB).
Glad everything went well with my man Bruno! Sending snuggles his way!
I hate that feeling that a whole day has gone and you aren’t sure where. I know it well. The good thing is that a day like that is often followed by one that is hugely productive!! Hopefully you will have one tomorrow!! Loving the wallpaper!
Just had to leave a comment to say that I love the rap name poster and just purchased one as a surprise for my boyfriend who said (and I quote) “omfg want” when I messaged him about it. Thanks Anna!
Your list is a definite can do. I know what you mean about those days that just sort of pass by. I think that they get sucked up by a big black hole and we have no fault.
The rap poster is too cool!
That Rap Name poster is AMAZING. I don’t have a lot of wall space in my house (so many windows) but I think I could find a spot for that.
That rap name poster looks awesome…and it looks like you’re fixing to have a productive week!
I hate those unproductive days. Unless they happen on purpose because you just need a break:) Then they can be kind of nice.
I think that half of that list is reasonable! The whole thing is superwomanish. lol Give yourself breaks and enjoy your days.
Believe me, accomplishing goals and appreciating the results is far more enjoyable for me than sitting around and “relaxing”. 🙂
Well, the results in the hall are beautiful. And you enjoyed it soooo, good for you!
That wallpaper is gorgeous. I am ignoring my own personal to-do-list for a few more weeks…
I can totally relate. Had a similar day yesterday filled with technical issues that kept me from getting my real work done. Today is so much better.
Just found your blog recently and love it!
i ran across that rap names poster when you posted about the gift for your nephew – love it 🙂 i want, but i actually have TOO MUCH wall art – I already gave a bunch away…I find too many great things to hang..and my taste/ideas change too much…fickle fickle me.
Awesome posters and to-do list, Anna. In the past two days our playroom/dining room/kitchen (yes, it has multi purposes) has been transformed by digging out all our artworks and hitting Ikea for more storage. So happy and now feels like it belong to us!
Tim and I are arguing over who will own the ‘Migratory Patterns of Fresh Princes’ tee – fantastic site.
Well that’s funny…I was just saying how I feel like we got NOTHING done today and my husband said he thought we got a lot done…AH!
I often feel the same way I have a growing list of things to do myself:
clean and repaint my kitchen table leaf
sell my record player on craigslist
sew tabs onto my tapestry and hang
sand and repaint kitchen chairs
sand and repaint barstool
thanks for posting that delicata squash recipe. i got two in my produce delivery this week and i was wondering what to do with them.
also, seeing you post your to-do lists is some great motivation for me. i always look forward to seeing your weekend list. have a great one!
Love that Apple Papple print! The wall paper looks so good in the hallway 🙂
I know this may be a random question, but I was wondering how you framed the poster. I read that most of your frames are Ikea Ribba frames and I can tell that the Pop Chart poster doesn’t quite fit. Is that just white art paper that you cut to size and put behind the poster?
I usually just stick posters on top of the mats with double-stick tape!
where to you get all your prints from?
Prints? I’m not sure what you mean. Are you wondering about a specific piece of artwork?
