|You Are A Lime Tree|
You are intelligent, hard working, and innately successful.
You try to change what you can in life - and you accept what you can't change.
Tough on the outside, you are actually soft and relenting.
Jealous at times, you are extremely loyal and giving to those you love.
You have many talents, but you don't have enough time to use them.
I'm not sure it's exactly me but parts of it seem to fit. Especially the last part about not having enough time! We are still working on projects around the house. Yesterday HB installed a desk top with shelves above it in a closet alcove of the office. We thought it would be a much cleaner look than the HUGE double-sided desk he built for us to use. Our big desk was quite functional but took up most of the center of the room, with him on one side and me on the other.
In the photo, which shows my side of the office (taken as we were clearing everything out after our fiasco) you can see the alcove on the right. We took down the shelf brackets and used a different wall attachment, and the yellow cabinet is gone and has been replaced by a desk top.
You can see the curve of the big desk HB had designed for that room. It had shelves above and custom sections for our printers, fax, etc. When we sat on either side of the desk we couldn't see each other. He designed it to be somewhat private but we did have cubby-hole areas that were open to the other side.
Here is what the alcove looks like now....
You can see the new paint color, too. And the floor is still the concrete slab as the new carpet hasn't been installed yet. We want to be finished with all the painting in the house before we do any carpet.
The new color is Almond Toast and I like it so much better than the lavender or periwinkle color that was there before. And the horrid wallpaper border is gone, too. You can't see it in the photo but it was 80's style all the way!!! I hated it from the beginning but just never took it down.
We're moving a small loveseat into this room along with a small side table and lamp so it will be a combination office/den. And if someone wants to remove the desk and shelves later on they can put up doors and have a closet for a bedroom. I'm changing what I can and I've been hard at work on this and many other projects around the house (see horoscope above!!)
