New colors

I've been thinking about how I would transform those two rooms.. Yes, I know they've not been empty that long. Well, I'm on a roll, in cleaning mode you could say. Washed and vaccumed... still have to patch the holes. I dared to wash the one set of drapes and they turned out nice. So I thought may as well do the other ones too. They didn't fare so well, too old I guess, the lining kind of stuck together and when trying to pull it apart the fabric just came apart. I guess we'll have to decide on a new set for that room. Oh, I got the paint today too.. velvet latex. One room will be an earthy light brown called Tangible and the other light bluish, reminded me of Robin's eggs, called Rockpool. We will see how it all turns out!

Moving Days

We just finished two days of moving our sons to their new home... managing to get mattresses, dressers, desks, shelves, books, clothes, etc. etc. transported over in our vehicles. Mind you we had to make quite a few trips to get it all done. They'll have to sort through and decide where all the stuff goes, but their beds are set up and there's food in the fridge. Now here we are.. the two of us sitting with sore backs and tired feet, trying to adjust to the emptiness of our house. But I imagine they are a little tired too. It'll take a little while for us all to get used to the changes!

July 3rd

Today was our 33rd anniversary. Wow, how the time flies by. I still remember it well. July 3rd, 1976 was a very hot day. Today was nice too, a lot of sunshine with a little shower, but not as hot as then. We couldn't get away today, so we just went out for a little A&W breakfast. It was good for a change. I had homestyle ham & egger. Hmmm!

This week we've been helping our kids clean up and fix up their house they purchased. It's been a busy, busy week. Almost like having a full-time 9 to 5 job. It's a good thing I took a couple weeks of vacation.
