The weathermen have now upped the forecast and we are due for 8 to 12 inches of snow on top of some sleety freezing icy mess. Doesn't sound like it's going to be very much fun?
We don't have to be anywhere this weekend, so we will stay home, snug as bugs in a rug. They already spread brine on our county highway road in front of our house. It's one of the main drags out of town to the north, so the trucks have been spreading in readiness for the icy storm.
I am thinking maybe
I better bake some cookies
while this thought is in my brain?
The new brown color matches the leather on our two mission recliners and I think it looks much nicer.
It also matches the faux-leather brown of the couch. I think it even matches the dogs, too! By afternoon I did the second coat, and then we took a nap.
My sweet friend Juanita loves the color brown, as do I. We are both October Sisters and this lovely rich brown is just right up our alley.
The little handle that I found at the ReStore for the firewood cubby door sure looks cute. The new paint was dry, so Steve attached it this morning. Now it balances off the little black matchstick holder and the black frame around the leaded glass fireplace screen.
Once the second coat of paint on the mantle is dry, I can put back my little tulip accent lights and my few little knicky-knackies and doodads.
Maybe a third coat is needed?
We store them up on the top shelf in the laundry room and just take down one container at a time. I think it helps keep it fresh?
Supper just came off the grill-
Salmon and baked sweet potato for me
Salmon and baked potatoes for Steve
and some steamed veggies for both.
Yummmmm Gotta go eat!
