Today is date day with Tim. We have both been really looking forward to it this week. He mentioned it several times yesterday. He also mentioned yesterday that I can pick trim paint today, which meant I had to make up my mind about the color of the house. I was very tempted to leave it blue. It would be easier really, even though I'd still have to repaint because the former owner left one side completely unpainted. But I have had cranberry in my mind for so long now and when I mentioned it to my son this morning, he said he would really like the cranberry...so he swayed me back. ;) I even chose my pansies earlier this spring with the cranberry color in mind. So, that means that I will choose a taupe trim, I think. I need to get it straight in my head before I look at any of those little paint strip samples or my little brain will become completely overwhelmed.
Without realizing today was the day to detail the dining room, I vacuumed the dining room yesterday, including the baseboards. So, today I only have to wash the baseboards and do some light dusting to have my detailing done before we leave for lunch. I've already finished one corner, but then my toast popped up, lol, and I had to stop and eat. When we get back from lunch I may dig into a book shelf that's in here (the dining room) that's been bugging me. It just needs straightened up a little, so I may as well wipe the books and shelves, right?
The sun is out this morning and I'm happy to see it. The cold weather makes me rather grumpy. I had to go to the DMV this morning. At 8am there was already a long line. I couldn't believe it. But the line moved quickly and I was out by 8:19. :) I didn't even finish one paragraph of the Beverly Lewis book I took with me to read and that's just fine with me. When I got home, hubby had made a fresh pot of coffee. The smell hit me as I walked in the door. Yummm.
Well, I could sit here and type all day, but like my Grandma always said "the house isn't going to clean itself." See y'all later.
