June Challenge: Update

I'm not sure whether this small project should be considered an organizing project or a decorating project. Sometimes, the two confuse me--and that's a good thing, really!

Back in May when I painted the board with hooks in my back entry way, I also took a small board outside and painted it. I intended to put hooks on it and hang it, too.

Because I couldn't mount the board horizontally, I had to figure out how to put the hooks on. Finally, I set my brain to the task. It wasn't difficult.

I used whatever hooks we had on hand. I am thinking I should paint a stripe between the two boards to connect them visually. I love that colour-- it's too bad it comes from a can of spray paint!

My husband insists on taking his lunch in an old plastic Safeway bag.
I am not getting as much done this month as I had thought I would. I thought I would continue to do something everyday even though I wouldn't post every day but it hasn't worked out like that. Doing a post is still driving the activity, though. Yesterday, I figured I'd better do something to have a post for today, so I picked this project, hoping it'd be quick and easy. It was.  
I have been in a bit of a funk, too. The sun is visiting only intermittently, usually just popping her head in at sunset to say goodnight.
So, I'm not sure which is contributing more to my lethargy: taking the pressure off of posting or the lack of sun but this month has not been the beehive of activity I had hoped it would be. 
Linking to Jules at Pancakes and French Fries, grateful to have the push to do something!

Small steps are progress. And lack of sun can do anyone in. We've had an unusually sunny spring, and I can certainly feel the difference from the last two years, when it felt we didn't get any until after the 4th of July.

I love that green color, too. And hanging the hooks at a slant--genius. (And the kind of spatial reasoning problem that would have flummoxed me.)

Thanks, Rita. When I thought of it, I was excitedaboutmy discovery and mentioned it to my husband. He was all "of course." Glad it wasn't obvious to you, too!
