A Leaf Falls- E.E.Cummings

I love Autumn...
but alas, the only
"changing of the leaves" Autumn I see
is in picture books
or on my tags!
I can hardly wait
for the weather to get crisp.
I am so excited
to be on the same page as Fly Lady this week!
Well, in the same Zone, anyway...
This week, we are in the Bedroom...
my catch-all! Yikes! LOL...
The apartments I lived in before
had lots of storage space...
which is important,
especially because
I don't have bedroom furniture
to put my things in...
I wish it was the same in this apartment...
but it's not...
I have decided to move my bed to the
commanding side of the room.
That means that my headboard
will be in the South...
& I will be facing North.
I wonder if that is bad Feng Shui...
Mother never liked the headboard on the South.
She always sleeps with her head at the North.
I like my headboard on the West
because I like to wake up
towards the Sun
which comes up in the East...
The good thing about
moving my headboard to the South
is that it will be against a wall
which is good Feng Shui
& there will be more room
on the North wall
where I would like to place
a chair
& turn it into a
little "comfort" corner
for reading, meditating
& listening to music...
When I was at Wal-Mart,
I saw a 3-drawer chest of drawers
for $50.00.
It is in a box that is small enough
to fit into my car (very important),
Bringing it up the stairs
will be tricky
because the box is heavy,
so I would have to open the box
& separate the pieces
to bring it up the stairs.
The box says it is easy to assemble.
The drawers are not fancy
but it would be nice to have a place
to store my things...
Oh, yes!
It is on my Wish list...

Love your tag Wini.  You have more ambition than I do.  I need to get busy going through things for our Oktoberfest yard sale.  Just can't seem to get going.
Hugs, Joyce

LOL...I have no clue which direction my bed is facing.  It's facing the window; maybe east.  Megan is continually moving the furniture so it could be north or west in a couple of months.  I love/hate fall.  Love the leaves changing but hate the thought of winter....totally hate it.  Love ya, Chris

I hope you get your room in a most comfortable position for you!  Limited options in some rooms.  I'd prefer a bed to be facing west, I suspect, as then the sun is less likely to wake me in the morning -- which is a problem I have in the summertime.  Hmmm, and switch it in winter so the sun is greeting me.  Well, I'll ponder that -- let us know how it works out!
