Ok, first the low hanging fruit; books.
1. The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
2. The Measure of a Man by Sidney Poitier
3. Soto Zen
4. History of Food by Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat
5. And from the garage - a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner (how does one end up with three or four vacuums - none of which pick up dog hair?)
This decor is definitely too "sweet" for me but I kind of like the layout. Minus the kitchen.
