A couple of deeper posts this week, so now time for something a little more fun. Like my new clock!! Yesterday John said “So do you want to go to the mall tonight?” You had better believe my fingers flew on the keyboard to get my work done in a timely manner 😀 I was looking for picture frames because I got some enlargements made of some of my photos. No luck there, but I did see a clock. I decided to go ahead and purchase it. 😀
It’s always coffee time in Casa Radiance!
John and I have also been discussing paint colors for the new house. Here will be the dining room. Merlot below the chair rail, moonlight white above.
The moonlight white is also going to be the color of the kitchen cabinets, so this will bring some flow in from there.
We have been pondering a lot over the living room as well. Usually it is a good idea to wait until you decide on furniture before choosing a wall color, but with my new chair (LOVE!!!) it gives us something to work with. I have never worked with a gray color and I am not totally sold on that, but it looks good with the chair. Picking the right shade?
Talk about 50 shades of gray!! They make it too confusing. There is no hurry, though. This will definitely be a process of putting samples on the wall. Normally I find colors and love them – then they go up. Gray is a whole new town to me.
And speaking of the house – You know, I am still waiting on an answer to my question on our house from early last week. I had a simple question. Or what one would think was a simple question. I asked our lawyer to find out where in the process we were because who knows if the selling bank has even done anything yet, right? Dead silence. I asked and John asked. Dead silence. So, I talked to my realtor and he asked the selling bank’s realtor what was up. Dead silence. Hello???? This is a lot of what was making me so upset last week. How freaking hard is it to answer that question? I am not asking for a concise explanation of quantum theory or the meaning of life. One of my 2 stipulations to extending the contract was to be kept informed of the process (the other was that it wouldn’t cost us any extra money). I am about ready to contact the selling bank myself. I hate being ignored. It would really help me mentally if I had some grasp of the process like if it was waiting for the judge or a response or whatever. This selling bank has already been pretty unprofessional and I am quite underwhelmed with them.
Enough of that, though. You know one of my goals was to change up my eating. Well, I decided I am going to do lower carb 4 days a week and then just in my calorie range without counting carbs on the other 3 days. When I was doing the Fit Female eating, the idea is to have a fruit or vegetable with each meal or snack. Well, turns out I was eating 4 or 5 servings of fruit a day because I really only have veggies with dinner. Nothing wrong with fruit, but the calories do add up. So, lowering my carbs to 100 grams (note I said lower carb, not low carb) keeps me to 2 servings a day. Then I don’t feel I have to have a piece of fruit with my latte and just have it by itself. ‘Cause as much as I love broccoli, I am not having it with my latte
On the Pixie front, the warm weather has brought the kitties around again. This particular cat (with a collar) stalks the birds at the bird feeder. Pixie was huffing and chuffing at the window.
Poor Pixie, she gets so upset and these other cats are like “Whatever…”
