Been looking around the house these past couple of months. I'm so tired of the stark white walls in the house. They've been this color since I bought the house back in 04, and I want to paint them something that will liven things up. Just got to figure out the color scheme I want to go with, get the paint and roller for the textured walls, and figure out the border color I want to go with. Which means one of these days I've got to take a trip up to Home Depot, Lowes, or Menard's, grab some samplers and tape them on the walls to see what "feels" good. I mean, once I get the paint and paint my walls, it's got to be something I'm going to like because that is what the color will be for a few years.

Then, there is my "scary room", the room which is the "catch all", where I toss things in that I figure I'll have a use for later, and then forget about them. I figure that will be an all day job..and one I'll want to do with windows open so that the house can air out also. I mean, got 5 dogs in the house, it's needing a good airing out. And for outside in the front yard, I'd like to get the stuff I need to make a raised box flower bed, and plant some perennials in it like maybe some tulips, daffodils, and maybe iris's. Of course, I've got to price all of this out, and I still have to get the border stuff for the fence in the backyard so my dogs don't get another opportunity to nip the neighbor.

Yep, got my plans for when the weather warms and I can get to work on this stuff.

Whew! Just ready your blog wore me out!

I'm so lucky, Susie takes care of my yard and if there's any hard work I need any help with, she's right there to lighten my load....wonderful, spoiled 'n lovin' it!

I would like my bathroom walls painted yellow...not a light, almost yellow but YELLOW! We were just talking about that a couple of days ago and I told her I just didn't have the energy to paint and she said she'd help me. Right now the walls are white with tiny blue 'n pink streaks. My accents are curtains, towels, ect. Blue is ok but it's boring and so is pink. I want BRIGHT!

Do you remember when I painted my bathroom when I lived along the river? Now THAT was yellow and brighter than I intended but once it dried, I just loved it. Here, let me re-post something to help you remember...


I stood back and stared and thought...
"Oh deary me!"
I shaded my eyes...I could hardly see.
I looked in the can, then up at the wall,
Oh, this isn't lemon...
not lemon at all!

The sun must've fallen from the sky overhead,
Chicken Little was right, it's just what he said!
A piece of it splintered on its rapid fall
And burst all over my bathroom wall.

I looked in the 'fridge, a lemon to find,
And there it was...the lemon rind...
It was certainly yellow, just like my wall,
But that wasn't what I wanted...
Not at all.

I cut it in half and there I did find,
The yellow I wanted
Not the bright rind!
I am hoping with time that its brightness fades,
But until it does...
I'll just wear my shades.

I have had everything staged to build my beds for my garden for a month, but Mother Nature has trumped me Hopefully the next projected snow storm early next week will be the last. I'll probably have to shovel off snow in the garden area to sort of get back on schedule

They've been this color since I bought the house back in 04,

Fear not! One day in the near future, you'll be able to change the colors of your walls and one day even change your walls into giant outdoor scenery and probably even join Scenery of the Month clubs. A professional painter, 'paints' the walls in a house or apartment once with, let's say, a special electronically controlled nano-tube coating and walla, color and scenery capable walls! We had flat screen TVs you can hang on a wall for years! The Jetsons soon to arrive! ME? I would have larger than life naked ladies on my walls!
