You know me and those crazy blue prints, so while I was having my lunch on the porch, I was reading them again and realized that I wasn't having lunch on the PORCH, I was having lunch on the VERANDA! OMG... I LOVE THAT WORD! I'm going to try to remember to call it that instead of the "P" word... it may seem a bit pretentious but that's what it's called so that's what I'm calling it!
|This is from "Back in the Day"...|
And as shocking as it may seem, the correct name isn't my big news for today!!! It's just some fun news for today... the big news is this... I've done one room, worked for 2 weeks in it, painted the radiator, painted the radiator cover and finally painted the radiator feet and rings and never even looked at it. Do you know what I mean? Of course I looked at it, I painted the darn thing, but I never LOOKED at it. So last night I was waiting for the floor to dry so I could stain it and I was sitting in the hallway looking into the "Lounge" -(Side note - "That's as much fun as waiting for paint to dry." LOL LOL... I'm cracking myself up!) I'm visually going over all the things I've done, trying to make sure I didn't miss anything so I could start painting Tuesday night and I LOOK at the radiator. It's beautiful. I mean, OMG Beautiful. It has all these lovely flowers running down the sides and it's quite ornate.
How does that saying go..."you can't see the forest for the trees" ? Well you can't see the artwork for the radiator...No, that doesn't quite work. Please come up with a better one for me...I'll use it. Tonight I am hosting our annual Book Club Selection Party and I am doing so on the Veranda! I'll try to remember to get some good snaps and I'll share tomorrow. Seriously, I'm hosting a party at Martha and treating it like a picnic - outdoors, no water, no bathrooms, serious fun! Hope it turns out that way!
Thanks for checking in on us.
