Living Room – Take One and a Half

Wade and I finally narrowed it down to this green and blue. I can’t decide. I think I may paint them both up there and then see which one I like best. I just seem to love painting don’t I? Anybody have an opinion? I think we have decided to put up molding in the…

    Green; definitely!

    They say you are only supposed to use Blue in sedate rooms. It apparently calms people. We have blue in a bedroom and I will say that it is a good fit for there. Not sure what the rules are with Green.

    There are rules? Nobody told me about rules.

  • CarolSeptember 7, 2006 - 10:22 am

    Yes, my dear, there are rules. Colors encourage and can alter emotions, so you to be selective. Blue is a very calming color, as is green. Red is exciting and stimulating. Rick and I took our chair rail down in the formal dining room because in my opinion, it’s just another dust collector. As you know, I am becoming a “minimalist” as I am approaching the 60 year mark in a few years. If you do put up the moulding in the dining room, do something interesting and classic (like it’s current owners) with the moulding, instead of the boring stuff that usually occurs in the dining room.

Back to the Drawing Board

Wade and I made another trip to Lowe’s and bought four more color samples. I love the small size containers of paint. Perfect for my patchwork wall. This time we added a new green, two blues, and a brown. I actually liked them all.

    I like the green on the far right and the brown on the far left the best!

    We tried the brown, but it didn’t look good with our hallway color. The one we are trying next is the green you like. Obviously we have the same taste!

Living Room – Take One

After putting more colors up on my patchwork wall, Wade and I decided to try a pumpkin color. Here it is on the wall. Now I am going to cover it with primer because I didn’t like it.

A Lake, A Party, A Game, A Milkshake

The original plan was to finish wiring Wade’s shop today. However, when he offered the alternative of a trip to the lake – we went! We spent the day on the water with his work friends and had a great time. They dragged the tubes behind the boat and we all took a few turns….

    Any lost rings on this outing?

  • CarolAugust 28, 2006 - 2:36 pm

    I can’t wait until our next get together for more of the freestyle – rock, paper, scissors!!!!!!

  • HollyAugust 28, 2006 - 2:00 pm

    Wade did wear his ring to the lake. He took it off at some point, but we found it on the boat before we left.

You Scream, I Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

Wade and I decided to be social tonight. We drove up to Greenville for ice cream and games at Lindsay’s house. We knew Lindsay and Mandy from church. Everyone else was pretty cool – especially Mandy’s brother. The ice cream was yummy. Wade was silly. The new people were nice. The others wanted to play…

    What game is Psychiatrist and why did Wade have to leave?

    Odd…

    By the way… You had me at Ice Cream… You had me at Ice Cream.

    Thanks Holly! 😉

    Psychiatrist – one person is the psychiatrist and has to leave the room. All the remaining people come up with a problem or something they will all have in common. For example, being on a roller coaster, pretending to be the person to their left, not using a particular word, etc. The psychiatrist can ask questions of anyone and the people answer as if they have the agreed upon problem.

    Most of us had never played. Wade asked one girl all the questions and figured it out quickly. But he kept asking questions till it was no longer funny. I think I might like to see the game played for real instead of Wade’s way.

  • CarolAugust 28, 2006 - 2:54 pm

    Okay, the game of “psychiatrist” sound like fun. Especially considering that when we all get together, Wade’s nickname is “Forrest Gump” . . . . I knew there had to be a connection.

A Patchwork Wall

I think I have decided to go for a modern look. I have picked out five different colors and tried them all out on the living room wall. I don’t like any of them. Thank goodness for Lowe’s small paint samples. I’m headed back tomorrow to try some different colors…

A Poke, a Scratch, and a Patch

On Sunday, before tackling the wiring in the shop, I was outside pulling weeds. I leaned over to pull while talking to Wade and got poked in the eye by the dried stalk of a day lily. My vision was blurry for a while, but I was fine the rest of the night. Then I…

    Hey, how is your eye doing now? Hope it’s okay!

  • HollyAugust 26, 2006 - 5:36 pm

    All better! It was just two days of pain and not being able to do anything – very annoying.

But He’s Such a Cute Frog

While visiting my friend Rob last week in Atlanta (he just moved down from DC), he gave me a frog. The frog hangs from it’s arms, makes noise, and moves up and down when it’s motion sensor is triggered. I was showing it to Wade the other night and Madison went absolutely nuts. She started…
