Just wanted to let you all know...I am MOVING things around in our house again! And none of it follows the rules BUT...some of it is working.
Job One: I have always disliked our dining room. It's just "eh" no matter what we've done simply because there's no natural light. Yes, I have a large mirror on the wall reflecting light from the window in the opposite room, but it's always been dark and dreary. So I moved the table into the sunroom a few days ago and bliss! I'll take some photos tomorrow to share. It's sunny and warm. I have begun working in there and using the table to make my creations. Very. Happy. The point? Why do we bother following the rules? We have hardly sat at the table in four plus years! Now I'm at it everyday and we had a rousing game night with Emerson on said table last week. His first try at Balderdash and he did very well. Was even judgemental at a certain point as he "the dasher" silently read the answer I gave to him, shook his head and said 'NICE, Auntie Tina!"
I'm also in the process of painting our front door yellow. I was going to do an orange but remembered being inspired by pumpkins back in 2005 and painting the living room of my townhome a color called "yam". Big mistake. But see? I am victim to the changing seasons! So I settled on yellow and..damn it's bright! I'm painting over a black door, so anything will look too bright..but...as a fan of "too many neutrals" as those close have told me..this is kinda big. Pics in a day!

TEASERS! We all need cliff hangers to make life interesting, I think.
In other news: Curtis our puppy found and ate a whole cucumber in the tall grasses beyond our backyard tonight. I could NOT get that thing out of his mouth, that kid is fast! As I researched it with fear in my gut, I read that they are non toxic. One possibility is diarrhea as he's never eaten them before. Praying for that to NOT happen tonight during my slumber! He also found a hot dog bun on our walk yesterday. I think I'm fairly quick with him and with watching..but geez! I may have had the nerve to look up at a cloud or something for three seconds...
I'm currently researching natural alternatives to ibuprofen as Brad my cute hubby is nearing his surgery date and the constant ibuprofen for pain is taking a toll. I would sincerely appreciate any help from anyone and everyone!
Rock this Tuesday, Kids!
