As true-blue homebodies (especially me!), our idea of date night is a leisurely trip to Lowe's or Home Depot, imagining what delicious home improvement project we'll undertake next.
So it would come as no surprise to those who know us that Ken and I would spend Valentine's Day weekend emptying out, cleaning, de-cluttering and re-organizing our garage.
It was greatly satisfying, as this area has been sorely neglected throughout the 8-month home remodeling process -- as evidenced by the elegant toilet chair draped in red in the middle of the garage.
And despite several attempts on my part to play Ms. Bossy the Know-It-All Professional Organizer, we emerged unscathed -- and nourished by the time together and pleased with the fruits of our efforts. Time now for a little laurel-resting before next weekend -- the basement is next! (Yes, Virginia, they DO have basements in Tucson. At least in about 1% of the homes anyway.) Thankfully, our basement is only the size of our little kitchen, so we should be able to tackle that project in one day, leaving us with Sunday for more official laurel-resting. At least as important as the work itself. Sundays have definitely evolved into an experiential exploration of the fine art of intentional resting!
