I'm Beat

July 12th, 2010 at 07:28 pm

Geez! What a day. After rescuing a bunny and a toad, I proceeded to prime and paint a bedroom! Yep. A bedroom. Orange paint, no less. I had to prime since purple was already on the wall. I actually still need to paint the last coat tomorrow. I hope, hope, hope that one more coat will cover that purple!!

I'd like to say all the painting made it a no spend day for us. Unfortunately, I needed to run to Super Target for a few things. Milk, bread, hair products. Cookies, too. Those were a want. Sixteen dollars spent.

I'll just add one more thing. I came up with a free kitchen table center piece this month. Three clear glass jars of different sizes. Filled with sand about 1/3 full. Added seashells courtesy of my daughter's collection. I just grouped them in the middle of the table. Makes me think of the beach! I also wrote "Relax" in blue on my kitchen chalk board.

    My DIL put together a retro cake stand from individual pieces found at garage sales and uses that for a centerpiece. It's very cool!

    I have a wooden bowl sitting on a lace runner with pewter candlesticks on either side. All garage sale items. I keep looking for something to put in the bowl but haven't found the right thing yet.

    You sound like me; I'm always rescuing wayward animals!
