I am LOVING this time off and away from working. This week has been awesome so far. I had my Bible study yesterday which starts at 9:30am and didn't end until 1ish then we all went to lunch.

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace.
