Ready for a new project



With the garden winding down and the end of the tomatoes and green beans in sight, my mind is roving for a new fall project to take on. 

Several rooms of the house could use a fresh coat of paint or some redecorating or rejuvenating of some sort. 

I picked up the latest issue of Country Living magazine today and scanned a few pages, which was just enough to stir some creative urges--some that don’t involve food. 

Few things inspire me like parking myself in the front porch swing with a glass of sweet tea in one hand and a magazine in the other.  Pinterest is great, but there’s something about turning real pages that gets me motivated. 

 I see ways of displaying flea market finds and wonder “now why didn’t I think of that?”  I see new paint colors and want to try them all.

I make lists of new projects I want to start—and finish—by the time our family reunion rolls around in early October, then I get side-tracked and have to do something mundane like pick beans or wash dishes.
Oh, well.  Dreaming is the fun part of any new project, and I’m pretty good at that.
