Hello, how is the week treating you? We went shopping at Costco yesterday and a bouquet of 2 dozen rose buds jumped into our cart. :-)
Kristi the wonder DIL has been working on clearing out our 2nd bedroom upstairs and found a basket of linens (I have no idea why they were in there) and I was so happy to see a long lost tablecloth of mine! I got it for New Years Eve years ago and couldn't find it. So, here it is, freshly laundered and on the table.. just 22 days too late, but oh well!
It's hard to get a good photo with all that light behind the flowers. Although our sun is on holiday today and our sky is grey. But it's actually rather calming not to have all that brilliant sun streaming in the windows. :-)
Don't you love the deep dark secrets held in a rose bud, ready to unfurl in all it's glory?
Pretty in Pink.
The Yellow Rose of Texas.
And ladies and gentlemen.. I present the 2nd bedroom "after" photo. We did not dare to take a before picture. LOL! Kristi has cleared it, cleaned it and is going to steam clean the carpet until we have new carpet installed. I'm thinking a buttery brownish color - the color of Buddy. And lighter paint, possibly a light yellow. This will be the boys play room and bedroom. We'll be shopping for bunk beds after it's all done.
I am rather looking forward to decorating with some red hearts, but will wait until Feb. 1st. In a few hours I will head to the pool to meet up with Gracie for some swimming. My heart loves me for it. :-) Dayle will be going in for his knee replacement surgery next Tuesday. Please keep him in your good thoughts. I will likely get a lot done on Caleb's blanket while sitting with Dayle in the waiting room and then in his room after the surgery. More news.. I booked a flight to Ohio yesterday - I'm visiting my daughter and granddaughters during their Spring vacation! Flying in on March 27th and returning on April 8th. Dayle is staying home, he thinks it would be a bit early to walk that much on his new knee. Well.. time to pack my swim bag and head out soon. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
