It's raining here, so what else is new? I know some places and some years rain has been scarce. It certainly hasn't been like that here, this spring. Everything is growing way to fast and the scenery is so lush.
Zeus is getting really good at spotting possible photo opportunities. At one point he stopped the car and started backing up. I asked him what's up and he told me that there was something on his side of the road that I had to see. It's up on my header. Zeus said if he had any idea what kind of saw it was he would buy one and leave it by the sign, for the guy.
I'm painting the old studio today. I've been painting it all weekend, off and on. Painting is harder on older bodies than I remember it being. A lot of arm work and up and down the ladder.
I started out on the shortest wall with the beautiful soft mint green paint, that we had gotten.
Even when I was putting it on it didn't feel right. I wasn't happy with it. It was a beautiful color but it was making the woodwork, which is white look pinkie beige. I did that one wall and then asked Mary and Zeus their opinion. It was unanimous, pick a different color.
I saw a sunflower dress of Riley's that had a beautiful yellow in it. Zeus and I took the dress to the home improvement store, matched the yellow.
Of course, backing out of the parking space we almost got smashed by an SUV that just had to swerve around our back end, honk at us and then drop off his young wife, at the door of the store. I told Zeus that there is going to come a day when he has to bail me out of jail because of parking lot rage, on my part.
I will be painting a room a beautiful sunny yellow on this rainy day. I think the color is called Yellow Corn.
The plan is to make these two rooms upstairs the temporary guest rooms while Mary is living downstairs, with Riley. Justin and family will be able to stay in them when they come down for their visit. Their visit, is going to be this weekend for Riley's birthday, so I better get busy.
I had 10 yards of mulch delivered from the local stone and gravel guy, down the road. It's a beautiful pile of wood mulch. I get excited about things like that.
It took me six wheel barrow loads back and forth to just do the paths around two of my raised beds, in the garden. Zeus asked me what my plan was and I told him, probably six a day until I finish it. Bless his heart he said he would do the loading and moving of the mulch if I would just rake it out. We actually finished doing all the garden paths. It's the first year I've got it all done at once and on thick enough to actually work at keeping the weeds down.
It sure looks pretty.
OK, I'm off to paint.
:)Bea Who is hoping somebody gets to their creative spot and does some creating.
