    We have a little sunroom off the kitchen that up until now has been nothing but the cat box space. A while back, I purchased two smallish round wrought iron and glass tables for $20 that we used in the living room as side tables. I decided to spray paint and purchase a larger glass top for one of them so we could have a breakfast area next to all the windows in the sunroom. Then I found some oak sheaf/rush seated chairs for $5.00 each and bought new cushions at Pottery Barn closeout for 80% off. I think of these endeavors as a hobby now as I didn't have time to do them when working. And the thrift stores here are great!!

    i get enjoying things, it is having nice things and admiring them. I just think joy is a strong word to somehow expect from all your things. And it's pretty superficial, about an inch deep as well, I mean if you don't have money to spend on nice things you become pretty indifferent to it pretty quick (unlike say some pricey food you might still like).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
