Happy Valentine’s Weekend! Just a note that I decided not to do the Healthy Heart weekend this year. We did it for 5 years and I think that was a good run. For the number of people who read this blog every day, only about 2% actually partipated in it (and those that did are the best 😀 ), so I figured I would retire it unless people really want to have it again. Let me know.
This was me trying to be artsy with John making a heart at breakfast.
It was harder than you would think to take this picture 😀
It was so, so cold here. Bitter, bitter cold. It really was a weekend to stay home for the most part. I actually did some work along with house stuff. I also did day 2 of week 1 of Couch to 5K. Still with it LOL!
Progess on the wallpaper front. The hallway and stairwell are now done and painted. Remember the old?
Of course, the light is on since this picture was taken later in the afternoon, so it seems bright, but it really is brighter – and not so stuffy looking. The walls are Golden Mushroom and the trim is bright white. The Golden Mushroom is the same color as our downstairs foyer and above the chair rail in the dining room to have some cohesion in color. Now to start hanging stuff on that blank canvas.
We are now on the last room of wallpaper! The final bedroom, affectionately called the Jungle room. The wallpaper in here is in pretty bad shape, as you can see.
It’s pretty much coming up at all the seams and has some gum stuck to it – which was the case all over the house. 🙄
My favorite part is where they must have had to make a patch and just stuck whatever paper they had up there.
If I remember right, that was one of the wallpapers in the kitchen, although I’m trying really hard to erase the memories of wallpaper…
So close to being done!
We had an early Valentine’s Dinner. We decided to go close to home and went to Sushi Aroy Dee. It’s only 1/4 mile from our house, so we bundled up and walked there. Let me tell you – I don’t know if I would have wanted to go any farther! Cold. We both got nice warm curries for dinner. John had a tofu curry and I had massaman with chicken:
The rice was served on the side in a heart shape:
Pixie has been recuperating this week from a UTI and she now seems pretty much back to herself. She actually was taking her antibiotics reallly well, thank goodness. She doesn’t seem to mind the taste of the liquid – and it smells like bananas, go figure (Clavamox).
This is where she spends about 80% of her time soaking up the radiator warmth. I need her life.
