Goodness summer is dragging. I think I am as bored as my kids. LOL. I woke this morning with a kind of ho hum feeling. I don't really have anything I have to do. Sure I have lots of things I want to do, but I have settled into the fact that I won't get to do those want to things until school starts next week.
Yesterday I painted the dining room. That was fun. It was super easy and I am really happy with the color. No photos yet though. I want to hang stuff on the walls before I show you. You didn't think I was going to leave it like it was did you? No no no. It is now a very even neutral gray color and I'll be adding pops of lime and turquoise. Oh, and the highlight of the room... a gorgeous antique oak beveled glass mirror that we found at an antique store last weekend. It was marked $125 and Ron talked them down to $80. The thing weighs about 30lbs... I love it.
I am speed reading our book club book. Well, not speed reading... I don't know how to "speed read". But I like to think of myself as a fairly fast reader. I am cramming 360pages in before Thursday. LOL, easy enough. 100pages a night and I'll be done. The book? Black Out by Lisa Unger. I haven't read an old fashion mystery book in years. I am really enjoying it. The first 100 pages had me snuggling next to Ron after I turned the light out cause I got the heebee geebees. The second 100pages kinda dragged, but it is picking up the pace again. I can't wait to find out what all happened. Why am I rushing to read it before Thursday? I am hosting book club!! The hostess can't skip reading, lol. Hey, I would love to hear your suggestions of books we should read for next month. It is my job as the hostess to pick 4-5 books to vote on. The book with the most votes gets read for the next month. Leave a comment with some suggestions.
I am knitting a sweater. I don't think I have mentioned that yet. It is something to keep my fingers busy when I find myself out of things to do. I noticed in the first week we moved that I would get the house cleaned up and I would have 15 - 20 mins before needing to go somewhere or something. It isn't enough time to start a big project (we have tons of those remember). I can't just sit there and I found I was compulsively pacing or cleaning more in those few minutes. So I had my friend Lindsey help me cast on a sweater. I'll show it soon. I want to get a little farther along with it first.
See... ho hum... not much going on. I am just kinda treading water until school starts up back next week. Then I'll hit the ground running. I owe you all new bead box beads, I have those tutorials to write, I have a November art show to prep for, and I have those chairs to recover.
