I dug out my beloved power drill and started chipping away at the "I should do that" list. You know, that list of things that you think of doing every time you walk by, but never have the time. Well now I had the time and I was going to do it!
1. Install a Kitchen Towel Rack
Ever since we moved in, we've been hanging our towels over the cupboard door below the sink. As handy as this was, it was also a bit of an eye sore. And if someone was washing dishes you kept having to ask them to step back every time you needed to use the towel.
BYGEL Towel Rack from IKEA for $3. I put it on the wall with the spice racks, by the fridge, which is just behind you when you're washing dishes. Now I just have to turn around to grab it.
2. Spruce up the Kitchen Decor
Another faux plant, along with my white birdie salt and pepper shakers take up the right side.
3. Fix the Garbage Bag Holder
To fix it, I drilled new holes, filled in the old ones and then screwed the unit back on...with longer screws this time. We've also made a deal not too let it ever get heavy enough that it would pull out again.
4. Hang more Artwork in the Living Room
sit above the bookcase in my old apartment and its been hanging above my dresser in the bedroom for the past few months, but it never felt right there.
5. Hang Pictures in the Front Hall
I used to hang in my old apartment bedroom, along with my Necklace Hooks.
I know it looks a little weird, but we don't keep Whiskey's collar on when he is in the apartment. Why?
Well, we're trying to grow back his neck hair.
See? He's like a bald little baby under that collar.
After a few months of doing this, its starting to come back in nicely. Maybe not as lush as before, but a bit better, and the skin doesn't look as red under there anymore either.
Now if only I could get his nails cut down shorter, but it is such a production every time we do it that I avoid it when possible and let him live with big talons half the time. Maybe I'll put that on the next "I should do that" list.
Tonight, Whiskey and I are headed to my parents' house to grill up some burgers with my Dad and help him paint their basement. It'll be nice to help him get something checked off his own "I should do that" list. Without my mom around to veto a movie choice, we may even watch a horror film afterwards.
