The breakfast nook

Did you ever have a space that wasn't working? And than one day you had an idea to fix it? Well it happened to me the other day. I have an area that is called a breakfast nook although I call it a dining room. It's never been quite right.

There is no where to put extra food dishes, no buffet. There is a lot of wasted space. There isn't enough lighting (There is only a ceiling fixture that I have a fan in, and it's not mid-room.)

The other day in a reorganizing frenzy (Known by my family and the "OMG-moms-moving-the-furniture-around-again-oh-ow-I-just-ran-into....HEY-Whats-that-table-doing-there" frenzy) I put a small table in there and turned the kitchen table side ways. Something I never considered because I didn't think it would fit.

My dining room

Perfect! Now all I need is lighthing!


Going steady with my Dyson

I have a vacuum problem. I've owned every one of those expensive vacuums and sure enough a year later I hate it for some reason.

Except (so far) my Dyson. I have the slim model and I really love it. We are going steady.

Maybe I love it because I have forest green carpets ... maybe it's because I have a bird that tosses birdseed all over... Or maybe it's just that I love vacuums. I don't know.

But the Dyson seems much better than my Rainbow or my Filter Queen; both top dollar sold at home demo, vacuums, ever were. And when I empty the dirt cup I don't just get dirt... I get this dust. Fine dust (embarrassingly, lots of it) that I don't recall getting from any other vacuum.

I know it's expensive. And I have no explaination as to why I don't want to pay more than 99 cents a pound for chicken but I bought this.

Just a mystery of my life I guess.
