Anyway, I spent last night on Pinterest and also on Miss Mustard Seed and was so inspired that I bought paint today to paint my bedroom! Because I want to sell my house I was just going to focus on cleaning and clearing and organizing and not get involved in major renovations. I've already updated all HVAC, new roof, new washer and dryer...all the majors. But meanwhile, I have to live here and I really believe in living joyfully in the moment as none of us knows what lies ahead. I also had a very "foretelling" dream last night and when I realized what it truly meant it was like a light bulb that went off in my head. I also got some divine inspiration which I will share down the road. Soooooo...needless to say I went to Wal-Mart, since I was close by at the vet, and bought paint and supplies and an Easter ham with all the ingredients for my side dishes and dessert.
Here's the color, Creamy Buttermilk and that says it all. It's Glidden flat latex and although I love color I will be adding color in other ways and then whoever buys my house will have a neutral background to deal with and I'll have a freshly painted room to enjoy meanwhile.
I don't know if you can tell from this picture but the walls are a pale green and the carpeting is too so it is really
ugly blah. I guess some people want their bedrooms like that so it's calm for sleeping but me....I want sunny, happy, and joyful and this color is just not doing it for me! LOL! Plus, it's old and dirty and needs a fresh coat. You can see where I painted the ceiling and brought it down a bit onto the wall.
The weather was great today for being out and about, sunny and high 60's but now comes the Spring rains starting tonight through Monday. We need the rain so I'm not complaining. For Easter, I'll be cooking up a "storm" literally with the weather and also painting my bedroom. LOL! I'll be doing one wall at a time since I use that room and tonight I will probably wash and spackle that one wall and paint it tomorrow and then hopefully be done with the entire room by the end of the Easter weekend.
I also finished a book for my Embarrassment of Riches Book Challenge of which I am way behind in!
This is the 4th in the series of mysteries by Maggie Sefton. I love her books as they involve a cozy yarn shop and a wonderful group of friends. She always has a great mystery plot and she's a good writer. The kind of book you look forward to crawling in bed with at the end of the day. It takes place in Fort Collins, Colorado and is based on a real shop there that the author frequents. I'm going to try and see if they have a website.
So, there's my plans for the Easter weekend....what are yours?
