I've noticed that since I no longer work at my desk five days a week, sometimes a day or two will pass by and I'm not on my computer at all. And the days that I am, I generally check my email a time or two, and that's it. That, and the fact that we've had some gorgeous weather the past few days, has kept me from blogging, too!
It's amazing what I can get done when I'm not tied to the computer. On Sunday, I finished painting the master bedroom. DH started it about a month ago, and did all of the hard parts -- priming the one black wall that the former owners had painted, then painting over it with our accent color, and then repairing and painting the wall with the window. Before I started painting this weekend, he did all of the prep work, so all I had to do was apply the paint. The colors we chose are both by Behr. The main color is Gobi Desert, a soft, sandy color for most of the room. The accent wall is Belgian Sweet, a deep, chocolate brown. The bedding is white matelasse, and lest you think I'm totally boring, our drapes and accent pillows and love seat slipcover are done in the Laura's Garden print, from Country Curtains.
It's such a change for me to have a room without lots of color. But, I have to admit, it so peaceful and calm. Our bedroom furniture is cherry wood, and the palette really shows off the deep, warm tones of the wood.
My next project is to hang some pictures. I'm not quite sure what I want, so I think I'll just live with the room as is for a while and see what comes my way.
This morning my project was the flower garden in our front yard. It isn't quite finished (I need to find a 16-year-old boy to haul some rock for me this afternoon), so I'll write about it another day and post a picture!
