I finished two of my painting projects. I have a couple more but now I am not sure what I want to do. If you followed my Instagram stories it was quite entertaining. Painting does this to you:
- Leaves your hair covered in paint. Somehow, I did this.
- Reminded me of every muscle that hasn’t been used recently.
- Gives you a new lease on a tired, old, looking house.
Below, a small kitchen table and chairs set that I re-stained and painted Country White:
Below, my bookshelf that I white-washed and distressed:
These things were perfectly functional but dated so I just spruced them up.
On Sunday mornings I really crave a good breakfast but that means planning and you know that the grocery store and I do not mix. I need a bacon fairy but one does not exist so breakfast will probably be Greek yogurt and granola instead.
No big plans. We volunteer at outreach on Monday, Tuesday is life group and then I think we are getting close to a choir concert so rehearsals will begin soon as will volunteering for that.
I am reading The New Me by Halle Butler. It’s a review book I received and it comes out in March. It’s described as a novel of “female rage” but with humor. I agree with this statement. It’s pretty short so maybe I will finish it today.
I am also reading Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. There is a book club for it on Instagram so I decided to join in. I am pretty excited to read it.
I found I Love Lucy on Hulu and it made me so happy.
Also, The Walking Dead is starting to ramp up. I hope it continues and I hope Daryl continues to have lines. He’s been flying low for two seasons now.
The Oscars are tonight but I am volunteering when it starts so I will miss some of it. How will it do without a host? Pretty well, I think.
New Things I’ve Tried:
The “Two Buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s has always been decent for an inexpensive wine option but I recently tried the Charles Shaw Organic Rosē for under $4 and it was surprisingly good. Kind of bubbly even though there was no carbonation. I would definitely buy it again.
It is so nice to have a refreshed room to come home to. It’s so light and bright now. I want to adorn it with new candles and plants. Here’s to making old things look new.
Now that we are wrapping up February, what do you have in March that you are looking forward to? I have a work conference that I am going to. I am looking forward to it being out of the way. I don’t like to travel for work at all.
