Ever have those weekends where you do so much stuff and all of the sudden it’s Sunday night? That was my weekend. I put a lot of miles on the car, too.
Funny story. Way back when I first saw our house, it was because I was driving to a store and missed the turn. So when I drove further up, I saw the house. Anyway, fast forward over a year and the woman had moved her shop. She had an open house on Saturday at her new location and I went to it. When I got there, one other person was in the store other than the owner. She asked me if I had been to her shop before and I told her the original story about how we ended up with Radiance Manor. Then the other customer spoke up and said “You bought X’s house?” Turns out it was a neighbor across the street that we hadn’t met yet! He proceeded to tell me what a jerk the former owner was and how glad the house is owned by someone taking care of it. I don’t think we have run across a single person that had anything nice to say about the former owner. I told him to stop by any time to see the work we have done. Funny how small the world is.
Anyway, I am thinking of taking one of her classes. She repurposes stuff, which you all know I love, and one of her classes is to make a windchime out of silverware and such:
I thought that would be nice for the garden and I am going to see if the nieces want to do this as well.
Painting progress on the middle bedroom. I went with a rose color. It’s called Romantic Rose – imagine that.
No more red closet door, either. Thank goodness. I was going to do some stripes in this room, but after loving this color on its own and then John not crazy about the stripes, I think I will hold off on them for a while. I can always add them later.
My sister and I went to see Selma on Saturday.
Have any of you seen this? It was a good movie. It was pretty intense in parts and sometimes I think it dragged a bit, but overall good. I just have to say that I don’t understand how people can hate so much. I like to try to see other people’s sides of issues to try to understand, but racism is one I just don’t get. At all.
Sunday morning we were at Panera since Coffee Planet is closed…wahhh!! Anyway, instead of a bagel, I tried the Power Up Oatmeal. It has steel cut oats, quinoa and almonds.
This was really good, I have to say. And they don’t sweeten it, which is nice. I put some milk on it. The oats are 290 calories. I would definitely get this again.
Pixie says “This is my new bed!” I need to cool my jets for a while on accumulating the projects. However, when a deal crosses your lap, you have to take it, right? Not to mention meeting a very nice person who sold this to me.
Speaking of projects, I need sign off and straighten up for some company coming over tonight. 😀 I need one more weekend day… just one.
