The new roman shade is hung!

What do you think?
I love it.
I really do.
And more importantly my husband likes it too.
And that's saying something for him to notice.
He hasn't noticed, however, the little gift to myself...

...the pretty little tray from J Crew
I snagged, on sale of course, last week.
Super Mario, our handy man, also worked his magic
on converting or extending rather
the curtain rod in the family room
which means I now have to iron
and hang the white drapery panels.
Yes, the ones I bought a few months ago.
That have been sitting in my dining room buffet.
Hiding out so as not to remind me they need ironing.
Not my favorite chore ironing.
Oh well.
At least I'm making progress.
And on a good note I was able to run today
without being in pain.
It was only three miles but I'll take it.
And I had a talk with myself
and agreed :)
that it was better to ease back in
and let my body recover at its own pace
rather than jump head first and really get hurt.
And if that means I can't do the half marathon
next month that's on my schedule, well, so be it.
I'm not going to freak out over it.
I'm just going to try my best.
That's all I can do.
And I'm ok with that.
