Home ..

t’s was another rainy day , the rain was coming down fast and steady. Making it a cold and dreary day. Even though it looked gloomy out it felt nice and cozy inside. Crockpot cooking supper once again. Miss Abigail sleeping in her chair . And I folding some laundry in the living room while watching my daytime show but I believe what made it feel cozy was off and on looking towards my kitchen and its fresh new paint . I’m still amazed how much I’m loving this red and how easily I adjusted to it. I guess I was ready for a change after all. It’s evening now the rain has stopped and the sun has peaked itself out from the clouds. This weekend my hubby will finish painting the kitchen and putting in a breakfast bar. And then it’s outside to paint.. sadly our front and back decks need painting . The last two winters have taken a toll on them. He isn’t looking forward to it but is happy he will at least be outside but for now we are enjoying finishing the kitchen . . I’ll post pics when the breakfast bar is in . It’s amazing what a new paint color can do .

Groundhog Day!

Today as I was waking up my hubby who was up an hour before me. Informed me the groundhog saw his shadow , a early Spring it is. Well whether you believe it or not it’s a fun idea . I am hoping this little guy is right. Early Spring sounds beautiful to me. I guess we just have to wait and see . At least it’s February now and everyday it’s staying a bit lighter in the evening 5:30 and it’s just getting dark. Tonight my hubby found the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray . Yes every year it’s on one of the channels and my hubby always comes upon it. You have to watch it . I do not want to give it away but I’m just going to say it’s a bit frustrating lol. My hubby loves my reaction to it when he finds it. But I’m a good sport and watched it with him.

Today we conquered the grocery store, yes conquered … it was wall to wall people , Super Bowl weekend… everyone was walking into peoples carriages that were in the way some way or another know matter any way you turned … waiting basically in a line for your turn to get to where the hamburg and other beef was to grab some. Then the same in the dairy isle where a lady almost turned and ran into my carriage but luckily I was able to move enough and in time and she thanked me . I laughed and said oh no problem just happy your fine she replied well you had my back thank you. I thought that was nice of her. Oh I witnessed a lot of comments some not so nice .. not directed at me but just hearing people complain . My hubby after grabbing a couple of things and having me just stay where I was came back and said let’s get out of here . We couldn’t move fast enough zig zagging to the checkout. After we went for our after shopping it’s over coffee treat! Then headed home to put the groceries away. My hubby went for a hike in the snow as I went through somethings in the kitchen I wanted thrown . Trying to declutter more of the kitchen since we will be painting it soon. Nervous about this one … the color is a maroon / soft /dark red .. yeah complicated they say red is but we thought it would be cozy for a change from the bright yellow well not a bright but light yellow that after 12 yrs we need a change. I think even though it’s going to be a darker color the room will still be light enough , we get a lot of light from the slider in there. I’m excited to see how it will look after it’s finish, It’s just doing it . Well this Saturday went quick it’s 11:00 I guess I will get some sleep hubby’s already snoring🙂

Decisions

As my hubby is enjoying the hockey game on tv I am looking at paint colors online . We want to repaint our kitchen and living room it’s been 13 yrs since we built our house and feeling like we need a change defiantly over due. As you see I’m the one looking as my hubby is watching the game …okay it’s not that he doesn’t care it’s just he is sick of me not liking his color and him not liking mine so he needed a break . It’s so hard . When we had first moved in it was actually not too much of a though what we wanted and the house was painted now . It just feels so overwhelming . The more I look the colors are starting to look all the same hahahaha . Earlier I thought we had it then one issue came up do we break up the color in the hallway that is connected , follows the kitchen color or now break it up …ughh . It’s a ranch so everything is so connected . I like the idea to break it up he doesn’t . So that has led him to stop thinking about it at the moment . Oh what to do …. sadly I’m not a hockey fan so that is not going to distract me 🙂 well I guess I stop looking give it a break and see if it’s clearer tomorrow. Maybe .

Book read ? maybe since I’m settled under the covers with our electric blanket on ..yess it’s cold it was snowing an hour ago not sticking but snowing ,crazy middle of April. having to use my blanket . It will be used again tomorrow unless I can get close enough with my car to see the track , my son has a track meet tomorrow afternoon in a couple towns over . So if it’s cold it will not be fun sitting outside . Bad enough the kids stiffen up trying to run in their uniform in the cold. Once again my son is home settled in his bed watching a movie after getting home from practice. Such a record . Next week he will be back at school and then watch he will be out at night a bit more … hmm . I guess I will read for a bit Good night everyone.
