New photo’s of an old room for your entertainment. M & M came by last week and helped tape and paint the “horrid white room” and turned it into a picture of spring. I love the Midori tone to this color. It makes the room shine.
This is the almost finished product. I’m re-varnishing the floors right now, then we can put the furniture back in. I need to get curtains and a comforter to match the room, put up a few pictures and some knickknacks on the shelves and we’ve got ourselves a great spare bedroom.
This is a beautiful glass piece we got to add to the living room. I love it. Made in Spain from recycled glass we picked it up for next to nothing. We got 75% off the 50% off the 20% off the original price. I love Art Van for things like this. They buy tons of it to make their showrooms look good then move them to a corner of the Clearance Center where they keep getting marked down. Most people wouldn’t have looked twice at this bottle #1, cause it’s huge, it stands even with our fourth stair riser, #2 it was a weird color in the store. The fluorescent lighting made the white swirls a dingy grey color. I almost passed it by too. Something in it interested me though so I took it outside to see it in natural light and it was beautiful, heavy, but beautiful. I love buying special things for my home and not paying a small fortune for them.
And now my favorite part of the show….. my Orchid garden. How wonderful it is to wake up every morning to see this amazing array of orchids. Every morning greeted by the promise of spring, especially with the thick snowfall in the background.
It was a rough end to the week. We had everything planned to head south to visit C & L and the Grands but I got stomach flu again. I even volunteered to go to the doctors it was so bad. I knew what she would say, “Plenty of liquids, B.R.A.T. diet (banana, rice, applesauce, toast)”. I usually fight going to the doctors but I’ve been so sick so often lately it’s starting to bother me. I know my immune system is shot which makes it less enjoyable to go out and do things when you know you are going to end up sick in a few days. Even something as an innocuous as going to a comedy club will bring me to my knees. It just sucks.
OMG, new reality show alert, or maybe it’s old and I’m just behind, whatever. It’s a reality show about biker gangs and their funny wars. The show I watched showed rival gangs fighting over the colors they get to wear. Big, tough, biker dudes gonna duke it out over the colors. Seems kinda girly to me. So did the fight scenes. I’ve fought tougher girls in the day.
Nine am dentist appointment tomorrow. Last two fillings and a cleaning. Yippee. Then Thurs. I get my CT scan after three months without chemo. I’ve enjoyed the three months free of chemicals, but I’m ready to do what my doctor tells me to do. And that’s stretching for me. Giving that much power to someone. Scary.
OK, I’m off to seek refuge from this hectic mind whirl with slumber, or perhaps a brownie then slumber. Peace out all.
