The Sprinklers are on! 
I had a very busy day.  thought it was time to get some things in order at my own house.  I mowed the back yard ~ no small feat considering it was 3 weeks past due...  My son and I cleaned windows ~ the ones we could reach.  The highlight of the day was opening up the sprinkler system.  The kids and the dog had a blast.

Kitchen quick Fix

A few days ago I bought these inexpensive sheers at Target to replace our blinds that met their demise a few years ago thanks to one of our dogs. The rod was very inexpensive as well and it instantly softened up the room.

Yesterday I have our handyman, Jim, over to install new light fixtures in the kitchen. Thought it was time to get rid of the huge white can lights above the sink and island.
The combination of the window treatments and new lighting made a world of difference. Even my husband commented on it. If he noticed I know I had to have done something right... :-)
