This morning is cool. Soon flip-flops won't really do the trick. The sky is grey (or gray) and somehow comforting. I'm ready for these next few seasons.
Finishing strips for a "family" throw. A more mature quilt, you know.
Also- did you know...I'm so in love with my white walls. So much that I decided to do a little touch up with the paint left over from doing the pantry last week. The whole interior is nearly all the same color: Popped Corn by Behr. Little did I realize though, on touching up the walls in the hall, that we used a flat finish paint (no sheen) and I was touching up with eggshell finish (lots of sheen.). This is exactly the thing that would send Brad into a bit of irritation. Remember, he used to paint homes professionally way back and clearly this is the kind of mistake only a rookie would make. See, I shouldn't still be a rookie after several houses and lots of painting. But, lo and behold! I ended up having to re-paint the whole freaking hallway, oh-so-quickly, finishing just before he got home Sunday night. (If a painting blunder occurs and a husband is not around to see it, did it really happen? NO.)I have some Fall garden in. This is GREAT news. Only, I need to plant much more to actually have a shot at making big bowls of steaming hot greens night after night. Isn't it amazing how much you have to plant to really get meals?
Thanks for the book rec's. I ended up with this one and read over 100 pages last night. I am so happy to be reading again after so long of reading myself to bed with the New Yorker. I love the New Yorker. But it's not the best thing to read yourself to sleep by. Better with coffee in the morning. Know what I mean?
So much on the list today. Work, of course. Getting the girls closet organized and pulling out the long-sleeved shirts....
Letting this slightly melancholy feeling pass through and shift into something else, counting my many blessings.
Have you ever noticed, even having the most perfect life in the world, there are still moments of feeling ....lost? Just a little bit. Just for a second of two. Must have to do with the planet just spinning round and round in space. You can get a little dizzy sometimes.
