Rainy Day and Monday

Hanging around
Don't see a need to frown
Rainy day and Monday
Didn't get me down
How could one be upset by a Monday or a little rain when one has the day off? It's not possible I tell you.
So what did I do with my rainy Monday?
A little bit of cooking. I had Swiss steak simmering on the stove all day.

I finally finished (almost) cleaning up and organizing my craft rooms
Room 1 with my computer desk. 

I don't know which one of you said it, but NO, that is not a bag of chocolate covered mini donuts with only one donut left in it, sitting on my desk. You should really clean those glasses off. You're starting to see things.

The crochet corner on the left and on the right I moved the shelves I had sitting out in the room into the closet. I tore the shelf and pole out of the closet so I could fit the shelves in there. Now I can close the door and I won't have to see all that stuff. Plus I have more room on the floor now.

Only one picture from craft room 2 because I hate those red walls that are still screaming to be painted. I turned the picture to black and white because I hate those walls that much. I call this my inspiration library.
When we put the floor in the dining room and living room I didn't want this bakers rack back in there. It was still good so I didn't want to throw it away. I tried to give it away but didn't find any takers. It ended up in this room and I made good use of it.

I enjoyed myself so much today that I think I'll take the day off tomorrow too.

Oh, I was going to ask if you were cleaning up the inside of that donut bag. :)

You got a lot done on your day off. Good for you. You were so very busy last week it's nice that you can spend some time at home. Rain is a good thing. It's hecka hot here. Summer rages on for a bit yet.

They are donuts, but I don't know what kind. I'd have eaten them all by now.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Oh, my, your craft rooms are so organize and neat! I am a shelves person. I love the shelves/closet in the second picture. Aren't you glad no one took the rack? It looks really nice in the photo.

Organized and neat and tidy - makes it so much easier to work and looks nice too!

Hello Ann - I don't know whether it is me but I have been trying to leave comments and it hasn't worked .. but anyway, here goes again ......

Checking out your pot now reminds me that my pressure cooker ended up on the floor yesterday and the grab handle broke off. Who'e have thought that one little slip when drying up the pots could lead to such a calamity .... still it could have been much worse it could have landed up on one of our toes or feet and that would have been painful!

I see you have a cozy chair by your computer, as do I ... yours looks quite similar to mine .. I could (note I say could .. not should) fall asleep in mine for that is how comfortable it is!! ;)

I noticed that donut bag! You are so organized and have everything in its place! That yarn on the floor would be where my kitties would be!

Kloggers/Polly said...

Yay - finally my comment has worked. Whatever it was with the server or something else it appears to have sorted itself out. Thank goodness for that!

Sher said...

You have put that bakers rack to very good use! I'm so jealous!!! I want a craft room of my own!

I never thought to turn pictures to black and white when I'm not fond of the colors. Seem to make everything look so clean and crisp too. I have to remember that.

Ginny said...

Everything looks so neat and nice! I especially like the way you have all your yarn, it is neat and you can see it all, it's kind of a decoration all in itself.

Donna said...

Hey, come on over and help me straighten up now! It is looking mighty fine

marie said...

SweetMarie said...

Looks like you made great use of your time today! I'm behind with my fall cleaning. I hope to be finished by the end of September. :)

Pat said...

Love your computer space, especially the imaginary bag of mini doughnuts :) xx

Grampy said...

It is always nice to have a day off. Even if it is raining.Did you happen to throw in a nap?LOL After you found out who ate those donuts and left the bag in your room of course. Glad you made good use of your rainy day.

Jen said...

Ahhhh, I see I'm not the only one on a craft room organizational bender. *laugh* Donuts? Donuts? I don't see any donuts (I don't see that donut bag on the desk either ;o) I love that baker's rack; had I been around when you offered it up I'd have grabbed it and run for sure. *grin*

Hope you have another great day today - oh, and send us some of that rain please, will ya?

Marg said...

That is the first thing I saw was the donuts. I must be hungry. It is fun to get things straight and neat. If only I would do some of that. Take care.

FishHawk said...

It sounds like I may need to make an appointment with my eye doctor. For I could swear that there weren't any donuts left in that bag. On second thought, I may be transferring what is normally true around here to your situation, which means I may need to go to a shrink... No, shooting me in the head will not help. It's been tried before.

Anne said...

I LOVE chocolate covered donuts so it is understandable that I would imagine them everywhere. You are so dedicated to your crafting. It is really impressive.

Chatty Crone said...

What a wonderful room you have there all to yourself. Awesome!

I love your computer desk. And I'm glad that you didn't get rid of the baker's rack - perfect for your books.

And don't think I don't know about those donuts.
