The dining room is almost done. I painted this afternoon; we agreed on a light sandy whitish-brown (Sarasota Sand). It’s very neutral and very different from the other colors we’ve chosen. It’s subtle, but it warms the room up. I was going to hang the new pictures I bought in the dining room tonight, but I don’t see that happening now. I’ll get to it after church tomorrow.
I’m going to do the office, foyer, and hallway to the garage the same color. That won’t take much more. In fact it will probably take longer to move furniture and tape trim and the ceiling than it will actually take to paint.
It’s been good weather for interior decoration–cool, sunny earlier today but now rainy. It’s getting to be Christmas shopping weather.
I know, you haven’t even thought about Christmas shopping. Yes, I have. In fact, I’m almost always Christmas shopping. If I see something in January that I know somebody will love, I buy it and put it aside. When you don’t make a lot of money, you have to shop early and utilize lay-away! Besides, I’m going to Mom’s next month, and the goal is to take presents with me for that side of the clan. The sooner I get extended family out of the way, the more time I have for the hard people: Eric and the kids. You’d think they’d be easy, since they’re the ones I live with! Don’t I wish!
