Osmosis wins

I've been sitting here for 45 minutes trying to decide if I wanted to go to Grocery Outlet or maybe go over to 13 Coins for dinner or maybe eat what's already in my freezer/fridge. About the time I decide to get up and go, I reopen the debate. I think I'm going nowhere.

Well, not true. I am going to take my boxes down to the dumpster. And then come back and sit on my ass. And eat out of the fridge/freezer. And probably watch Hulu. And crochet.

Last June, my neighbors across the hall moved out of their condo to renovate it. Their unit was pretty gorgeous. And the kitchen and bathrooms had already been renovated plus they had a study with beautiful built ins. It took them for freakin' ever to finish. But, they moved back in today.

And I got to see. They made some radical changes. They built in THE most beautiful closet I have ever seen in my life. It is heaven with perfect lighting. It really is amazing. And they uncovered some amazing beams. This building was built in 1909. As a railroad warehouse. Throughout there are these enormous timbers - 18" square. You can see them down in the garage. My neighbors pealed back the walls and stripped the timbers so they are now a focal point of their unit and it really is stunning.

But then then covered 3 walls in fake brick. ??? And had these weird looking kind of ornately appointed built in shelves and cupboards that are all painted a dark gray. It's really weird. It's really hard to see why it took them 6 months - heck, any one of those HGTV makeover people could of done it in 30 minutes.

I am glad I got to see it. The curiosity has been intense.

I got my flannel shirt done. I don't love it. I'm saving that nice plaid for a better pattern.

Now it's nearly 4. I think I'll take those boxes and then pick up some mess and then settle in for the evening.
