First Anniversary of My House

September 10, 2004, I moved into my house. So in honour of spending that much money a year, I spent some more this weekend. Finally got the golden see-through curtains for my bed and I only needed 6 instead of 8 and they were cheaper than I thought, only $15 a piece. And then I got a canvas wood holder and carrier. I just take it off the base frame and go get the wood in it and then put the bag on the rack holding the wood I just brought in. It's something I've been looking for since I moved in. And I got rid of the front curtains and replaced them with a bamboo rolly-uppy window covering which is see through so I'll have to back it with some fabric, but it was cheap so I'm okay with that. Besides I have all this curtain fabric to spare. [grin] And I got a green roman shade for the kitchen window for roommate happiness. And I got a futon for the basement which is much better for guests. And I finally hung the roman shade in the stairwell window for more roommate happiness. I bought that shade in November of last year and it took me all of 10 minutes to put up. [sigh] And I got rid of the Mickey Mouse border in the computer room finally which makes it feel sooo much different in that room and it's a really good kind of different. Much cheerier and brighter. And taller, actually - the room seems taller. And much more roommate happiness. And I finally hung the black cat picture over the fireplace that's been sitting on the mantle since I moved in last year. And I also hung the CD rack (8 holes in the wall later) which has been on the floor since I moved in. And I also finally wall mounted the massive power bar for all the electronics in the entertainment unit. And I only broke three CD cases and one of my roommate's baking sheets in the process of all this handiness. Pretty good ratio of fixed to broken if you ask me. ;)

And I had a fire last night which was wonderful.

In the fireplace.

Congrats on your anniversary! Sounds like you are enjoying doing all those little things that every now and then, scream "Do this!!" I get those urges too, but usually don't follow up on them. Instead, I buy Alan new runners, or something like that! Unless you are here...
Miss you!

I miss you too. Life has been crazy lately. Very crazy. I'll give you a call soon.
