Wow, how did that happen? It seems like I was just lamenting over Monday, and now the week is practically over. I wouldn't mind this so much if I could actually remember where the time went. My goodness!
On my agenda all week has been to make curtains and new pillows (butterflies!) for the girls room. This past weekend we got rid of the pepto. Oh boy, what a major undertaking that was, much more than I imagined. That pink wasn't so easy to get rid of. Yes, two coats. I only bought 1 gallon. So, I sent Matt to the store to get another gallon, with the lid of the first gallon in hand with all the specifics. He came home with a different looking can. Turns out, the lady who mixed the first gallon used the wrong base. They assured Matt that it didn't matter so long as they mixed the same formula, but this was the proper base. So what if it was mixed wrong in the first place, mix the second one wrong too so that they'll match!! Um, I can see a difference, but I'm so over painting that room. I can live with it.
I had hoped to get to my sewing machine last night, but as soon as I finished cooking supper and got Ava in the tub the electricity went out. We spent the evening by candle light. Thankfully I had the ac cranked down, so the house wasn't too hot (yes, we've been hitting the 90's during the day with unbearable humidity - fall, where are you??). It was kind of nice with no TV or computer. The kids told stories with Matt while I listened and knit a few rows of my current project. Just as we were ready for bed, the lights came back on. As tempted as I was to jump on a project, I didn't. I was in bed before 10 pm. I can't tell you the last time I did that. Sleep is good. This was a good reminder to slow down and unplug. I doubt I'll be back in this space before next week. Maybe I'll have new curtains to show, maybe I won't. What I do know is that I'll be slowing down and enjoying the ride. Have a great weekend!
