 It took two Saturdays--the first to wash and dry the sheets and the second to make the beds--but the beds now have clean sheets on them.

Real life

Real life is discovering a run in your hose and stopping it with WhiteOut.

I was low on lunch options, so I dug in the freezer and discovered some chili from 2014. It was surprisingly flavorful.

Clare trip

 I took the day off from work and Mom, Libby, Kathryn and I went to Clare to the Amish hardware, bulk food and ding-and-dent stores. We knew it was time to head home when it took a little maneuvering to close the trunk.

 My office needed a plant.

Spring fever is threatening. So, I put some bulbs in a vase to see what would happen.

Grandpa's chair

I inherited Grandpa's favorite chair, which I have now passed on to Brian to furnish his house.

Stark. Bare. Empty.

Apparently, my coworkers find the wall in my office disturbing. I, however, am enjoying it.

Uncluttered. Clean. Spacious.

Rough wood

 It's trendy to cover a wall with rough, weathered wood. I don't have to install anything to achieve that look, and we plan to cover the planks up with drywall.

A room with a view

 I moved my files, books and personal items from my office, which was tucked away behind the reception area, to my new office, which is prime real-estate. I'm pretty excited about the new, larger, more-centrally located office. But, I'm especially excited about the window.
