228/365 Eye Catching

"Bowled Over"

It is hard to believe that the new school year is about to begin.  Weber goes back to school Monday; I am free until Thursday.  Either way, it seems too soon.  We spent our last day of weekday freedom accomplishing a couple of errands that are definitely no fun on the weekend.

Since Brooke is now home with us, we have had to do some re-arranging and re-organizing around here to make room for her and, more importantly, her books.  That meant the addition of a few bookshelves in what is now her room (formerly my craft room).  In keeping with the decor of that room, we made a trip to Ikea.  I knew the stock number of what we needed.  All we had to do was walk into the warehouse and pick it up.  We didn't even have to step foot into the shopping area.  But, we did.

Ikea is a fascinating place full of way too much stuff.  It is fun to look at, but truthfully, they do have a lot that no one really needs.  We staggered around for a little while, ultimately only buying the shelves we went for and a new bathmat for the guest bathroom.  Before becoming totally bleary-eyed, these yellow bowls caught my attention,  but not so much that I felt called to buy them.

The bookshelves are still in the boxes - unassembled.   This is a project for their unemployed recipient.
