Green + Simple: The Nature of Things

Green + Simple: The Nature of Things

September 30, 2013

Ok, I’m just going to throw it out there…is anyone else in favour of 3-day weekends? Like, every weekend? We could all work extra long and hard Tuesday through Friday and then catch up on everything else Saturday through Monday. I’m thinking it would be a win-win, just sayin’ 🙂 I’ve been thinking a lot about how busy life has been (thanks to some excellent articles like this one) and am on a constant mission to streamline the work/home/family/chores/cooking/etc/etc juggle but a girl needs to sleep at some point!

We made good progress on Gabe’s room this weekend and moved the furniture all in. Next up, hanging art and some DIY shelves and I just have to find curtains and a duvet cover before I show you the official “after” photos. As we tackle our current renovations, I’m taking the opportunity to purge the clutter and simplify how we live within our home. Now if only I had that extra day each week to devote to the task! Another touch I’m eager to add to his North-facing basement room is a shade-loving plant or two. There’s nothing more calming than nature and I love the fresh sense of life that greenery brings to a space. Branches, flowers, twigs or plants, it doesn’t take much to bring a little bit of the outdoors in…

How was your weekend? Get you get all of your to-do tasks accomplished or did you get cozy by the fire with all of this torrential rain? I must admit that I did a bit of both. Like I said, a girl needs sleep sometimes…especially this one 🙂
