Brr! Another cold day here in Lexington. But even though it’s still rather damp and grey out, you can feel that winter has lost its bite. It's just going through the motions. Don’t get me wrong, I love wintertime with its sparkly holidays, cold, snowy days and long, sleepy nights. I really dig all that. But what I love more is the changing of the seasons; one into another. I really enjoy the contrast and variety that four seasons bring. About the time you are really sick of the cold or the heat or the rain, another season takes the stage, and suddenly, it’s a whole new show. So winter, I am weary of you and bid you farewell. Hello springtime with your mild, warm days and the drama of your thunderstorms!
This wonder and anticipation I feel at the start of a new season leads me in a roundabout way to today’s topic: my home renovation. I have so many plans for the house in the coming months and I’m really looking forward to sharing them here, in the ether, with new blog friends. I won’t go into great detail about my plans, partly because I really want to document each project as it happens, but also when I write out everything I want to get done this year, I feel giddy and overwhelmed. It’s like the sun; you can’t look directly at it!
My little 1938 bungalow is the first home I've ever owned and though I sure do love her, I feel like I have so much work to do! But today, as spring peeps her head up, I feel fairly good about it! Dare I say even optimistic?
Oh well, we still have another week or so of winter and it is rather dark and cold outside. I think I'll snuggle in with the pups for one last winter's nap and dream of blooming hydrangea bushes, shiny wood floors, spotless, cheerful kitchens and period bathroom fixtures.
I realize this has been quite the meandering post, but I've been full of thoughts about the house today and wanted to express it somehow. I think I will leave it to David Byrne instead. Preach it Dave ...
