Do you ever just putter around your house? I love those days. Usually, I call it “piddling.” So does my mom. You know…not really cleaning…but just moving things around. It’s so fun. Actually, today I did clean some and do laundry, but now I’m gonna piddle and putter, once I get this blog post up and running. Ha!
Last week when we had a snow day, (one of many) I got a wild hair and hung a few iron skillets. Today…I swapped one out…so that they are all Lodge. Those kinds of things make me happy.
One reason that I hung them up was because it’s so much more handy. If you have much experience with cast iron, you know that they are pretty heavy. I had mine in an upper cabinet. These two are pre-seasoned…so they don’t require as much attention. I love that. I was also really pleased with the way that they looked against the beadboard. I am loving my new approach to decor. If you love it, keep it and use it, if not…give it away.
I have had a hard time with our mantle opening lately. I finally decided to use a piece of ticking to hang my boxwood wreath. I still wasn’t sure, but it’s growing on me. I love the brightness of it.
Lastly, I have tweaked this little bench several times since getting this new pillow. I swap the pillows back and forth. Then I move one and then I put it back. It’s there to stay for now.
I am aware of the fact that there are much bigger issues in life than puttering around. I also believe that once you pray about them and give them to God, He expects us to live life and to try to do it joyfully. If He made you a creative soul…enjoy it. If He made you an analytical person…analyze. If He made you an organizer…by all means…add some order to this world. If He gave you the ability to enjoy puttering around…putter away.
