|2nd day of fall|
They (not sure who these "they" people are) claim that the temperature will be 7 to 9 degrees cooler today than yesterday. I'm not holding my breath on this. I think that in my next career, I would like to be a weather forecaster. Very few jobs allow their employees to have such a high error rate and still remain employed. Truly amazing.
Yesterday ended up being a bit more productive than originally anticipated. I started working on the small table that I wasn't sure I'd keep or sell. Looks as though I am going to keep it after all. Husband went to the local Ace Hardware to get some eye bolts for his duck blind that he installed on his boat. I perused the spray paint aisle, since the paint aisle is always a favorite place of mine. I found an Ace brand paint called "Mechnical Gray" and fell in love! So, it came home with me. I started painting a couple of picture frames with it and the color is gorgeous!! It comes out like a steel blue/gray which I am currently in love with. I am going to paint the top of the table a satin black and leave the rest the gray color. Can't wait until it is done! It's going to go in the Nina/Tyler/Tara's old room/Luke/spare room/extra closet/junk/catch-all/hunting/fishing room, which I am redoing from top to bottom. Here it is in progress.
I really like the gray with the wood tone. On a future piece perhaps. There's always a future piece.....ha ha. The frames are looking good too, so when those are finished, I will post a picture of them too.
I also started the plans for the birdhouse, but realized I didn't have any colors other than white. I want it to have a worn rustic look, so I was trying to decide how to accomplish that. I think I have a plan, so more on that piece later too.
Today, I had to go to work, so no time for fun projects. Next weekend is looking promising though. Nothing planned, so far. Yeah!! Tonight I get to do more laundry (never ends in our house, especially with this stupid heat) and plan some meals for the rest of the week. Boom! Exciting life I lead. Oh, I'm going to go work out after school. Figure I will already be hot, miserable, and sweaty. Might as well make that load of laundry worth it. Ha ha! So, to close, I leave you with this quote I saw on a t-shirt at Fish's volleyball tournament last weekend.
