|It is a bit messy, but here is the fireplace viw|
|This was all black and rather homely. Now it is cheerful|
|Our $10 facelift for the window|
|They light up|
|I painted the candlesticks aqua and black. I went through so many cans of aqua paint|
|Picture between the shelves that we barely got hung up before we discovered the need to move|
|The funky bamboo light was a Goodwill Outlet score. It is very light, and they charge by the pound, so it was less than $5|
Here are some shots of the living room that we are now packing up.
We have about a month to pack, patch, clean, and move. I am prepping and teaching two courses, Magnus is absorbing a whole lot of math tutoring, Rin is taking 5 classes, and Luigi is drawing and trying to be a kid.
We have been eating a lot of pizza, taco bell, and rotisserie chicken! I need to get on the stick and plan some fast, easy, cheap one-dish meals that have easy clean up. I am gaining inspiration from this post. I also plan to keep sandwich and snack fixings around so that we can have fend-for-yourself nights.
I think I have asked for this type of thing before, but I am asking for you best hot weather, fast and easy, minimal mess dinners and lunches. Please share freely 🙂
