Home again!

I am home again – it’s been about 6 weeks of traveling and tons of fun!  I spent time with two of my daughters, caught up with dear friends and even went to visit my sister.  I clocked up an amazing 5,290 miles on my car’s odometer.

While I was gone my sister and brother-in-law painted my living room, dining room and office.  After months of trying out what color(s) to paint in those rooms I finally settled on “Enchantment” by Valspar.  It is a light, creamy yellow — almost like thick cream.  The two huge oaks in front keep those rooms rather dark I wanted a color that would brighten things up.  And it does that!  It is lovely.  All I have to do now is to paint the trim (which will be a bright white), move the furniture back and enjoy the “new” rooms. Thank you Sis!!

I have decided to do my gardening this year in raised beds.  My Dad and I went yesterday and bought the lumber and earth for the first bed.  It is going to be 10′ x 4′ and 8″ tall.  (Not so raised, but it’ll do for this year).  Can’t wait to put them together and get the first of the seeds in.

But I got to confess, after all that fun and traveling I am SO tired!  It is almost 7pm and I’m all tucked into my bed, soon to be in dreamland.

Sweet dreams, friends!
