Random Ramblings

  • I am taking most of this week off for my birthday.  We usually take a day trip around the Puget Sound but due to lack of money that isn't going to happen this time around.  Not really bummed about it though because I have plans to get rid of the nasty blue paint in my bedroom and go with a pretty green.
  • I picked up a green that I liked and put it on a section of the wall.  Of course, the hubby feels that it is too yellow.  Let's hear it for buying little samples of paint.  I am off to pick up more later today.

  • Don't you just love getting emails saying that you have won something?  I have been really lucky the last couple weeks with winning some earrings last week and I just found out that I won the above focal from Tree Wings Studio. Isn't it gorgeous!  I purchased a lot of focals and beads from Rebekah in the past and can say that I just love the quality of her items.  
  • Don't ever try to paint a room by just moving the furniture away from the walls.  What should have taken a couple hours is taking four days because we will move the furniture so I can paint that wall and then we have to wait for it to dry.
  • I am loving the new color.  I went with a green called Green Tea.  Doesn't that name just seem to fit.

  • Went out dinner with my Mom and stepfather Don for my birthday.  It was delicious and it was a beautiful evening.   The above pic was taken out the window at our table.
  • I must be getting old.  I remember when I used to love fireworks.  Now they just annoy me because they scare my dogs.
  • I hope that everyone has a great 4th of July!!


  1. I like your random ramblings posts. Beautiful photo outside the restaurant! I'm getting old too. I was in bed when I heard the firework start here (the big do was last week)!

  2. happy to hear you had a wonderful birthday :) and unless you have lots of extra room and willing bodies to completely empty the room for you to paint, doing it piecemeal is the only way it can be done >.< lol As for fireworks, your not alone. I watch the fireworks here on my fireescape... half way across town from where they set them off. That way I'm not being choked by the smoke or deafened by the noise.... unfortunately , I still got nailed by mosquitoes so I didn't watch many lol I think they're one of those things that you love as a kid, and only love as an adult if you have kids who are enjoying them.

  3. Shaila-I love the green bracelet and earrings set. The colors and design are wonderful!
