Monday holidays are the best

I've been struggling to get back into a routine since the Christmas/New Years Holiday. I only worked a couple of days during those 2 weeks. When it came time to go back to work I was dragging for awhile. I was so glad to get another holiday so soon. Monday holidays are the best anyway. I love the extended weekend.

Doubly glad when Emmy came down with some weird rash. It looked like the rash she gets when she is around horses (she's allergic). After spending the morning of my day off at the Pediatricians office, it was determined she is totally fine. She just as Fifth Disease, which is some random childhood illness that is basically just a rash. She will be sporting the spots for about 3 weeks but she shouldn't have any other symptoms. The rash doesn't even itch. Anyway, after the appointment, I came home to get something productive done.

I organized the stuff stored in my attic. Painted my front door purple/pink. I've updated my house numbers too, I just haven't gotten them hung up yet.

I also turned a shower caddy into a spice rack. My kitchen is laid out a little odd. everything is on one wall. The stove is set into the counter and across from that is a door to a small closet. Most of the closet is taken up with my oven (its set into the wall) but it does have some space below it. I attached the shower caddy/spice rack to the inside of the door. Its the perfect location. I hate cooking, but now if I chose to I can actually access the spices.

Now that all of that is done, I need a nap.....or a day off.


  1. I'm glad the rash turned out to be nothing serious.

    Your front door is totally cute!

    And what a clever idea, using a shower caddy for a spice rack!

  2. I really love it. The screen door has to go. It blocks the pretty door and looks icky.

  3. I had been on the fence about a color for months. I'm glad I went with my gut. It makes me smile every time I see it.

  4. Love the door color, so pretty!!
