My home leave is finally over! I had a great time at home. Although I had to attend to a lot of activities in time for the kids graduation and do some errands at home, we still manage to declutter and organize our home sweet home. Hubby was able to retouch the exterior paint of our house. As you are all very well aware of, rainy season in the Philippines is quite longer now than usual and constant raining can deteriorate the overall appearance of the house. If not properly maintained, our house will not look as pleasant as what it is now, so we make sure that we repaint regularly at least once every two years. The house roofing was also repainted and we manage to clean, repaint and arrange our vacant lot situated next to our house.
We had built additional shelves for our shoe cabinet as well as create more storage spaces on our kitchen cabinets. We didn't spend much on this project as we just have recycled some materials available at home. We just have to pay for the labor fees of the carpenter that we hired to do the project for us. Our dirty kitchen got a make over, too. We change the color motif and installed outdoor tiles on the flooring to complement the color of the walls. It's now looking clean, organized and airy and we just loved the "new look".
I've also noticed that our washing machine is too old and ready to retire. It doesn't serve it's purpose well anymore, so I've decided to purchase a new one together with a new "cooler" for our dining area.
It's good to know that we can introduce some improvements to the house once in a while. We used to do this every time we go back home for vacations. We made sure that we have accomplished something for the house. Believe me, it really feels nice knowing that you have spent your money worthwhile and for the comfort of your family. It's the best consolation that we are getting from working too hard.
We have more projects in line towards the end of the year and we're just so excited about it. Please stay tune!
