I love Fall, so the arrival of September is a joyous thing for me.  However, the warm weather here will continue until October, at least.

My eldest son and DIL are planning to return some time this month…and I’ve been rearranging my interiors again for more space.  Notice the photo above:  I moved a couple of cabinets around.  I realized how small my living area is with several people moving around, especially in the mornings and at dinner time.

I swapped the yellow cabinet (above) with the burgundy one (below)…and I moved the green cupboard onto the back wall…allowing me to push the table over a bit.




It doesn’t seem like a big difference, but in the end, it is more spacious.

While I was at it, I also rearranged my coffee table.  I took some things off the top and placed them below the table.  Note the wooden box:  it is on the shelf below now, and in it, I stash remotes, etc.

Here is the table cleared off:





These are minor changes, but I feel less cluttered and with more open spaces.


My evenings are spent reading, preparing for the return of my house guests, and bingeing on Mad Men, on Netflix.  This is a show I somehow missed along the way, but I’m loving it.




I had heard about the show, over the years, but was surprised to discover that the era was the 1960s.  That, alone, should have drawn me in.

I’m glad to have discovered it now…and to find myself connecting with the women characters and their roles in life back then.  Before everything started to change.

I am a bit nostalgic, while still being glad to have left that era behind.


What is your interior world like this week?  Do you have favorite shows that resonate with you?  Are you making small changes in your surroundings?  In your reading?



  1. You are a busy mover and shaker…yet again! We cleaned today because we were away for a few days…so now I am relaxing…we loved Mad Men…we were both so sad to see the last one!


    • I always hate leaving characters behind when a series ends…I have felt the same way about several other shows. I did hear that another season is coming for House of Cards.

      Thanks for stopping by, Patty, and yes, I am moving things around a lot…hoping to be ready for the return of my house guests.


    • Yes, I’m glad about the slow cooling off, too…I wouldn’t mind a little warmth, just not those 100 + degrees…LOL.

      I did a few kitchen drawers when my guests were here and cooking in my kitchen. I even rearranged them, with the junk drawer in a more out-of-the-way spot.

      Thanks for stopping by, Pat, and enjoy the clearing out.


    • Oh, I didn’t think I would be as into it as I am…which surprised me, but then again, the 60s were a pivotal time in my life.

      It would be great to have someone unclutter our spaces, right? But maybe we have to do it ourselves so we’ll be motivated to keep it that way…for a while, anyway. LOL.

      Thanks for stopping by, Shelleyrae.
