The gardeners are back! Let the roto-tilling begin! New sprinkler installation. Then sod. And then desert plantings for the back yard. Most of this will be finished when I return on Saturday night. OH MY!
Frank the Painter was here last night for dinner and color choosing. He is going to re-paint the accent wall in the living room (from salmon to rich deep green), the hallways, the guest room walls and ceiling, the front door, and the perimeter fence. He starts tomorrow and should finish by Thursday.
That means I will be walking in to a whole new place on Saturday night! Unfortunately, it will be dark when I arrive home, so I won’t really see the yard until Sunday morning. I am very anxious about the interior paint. We discussed the color at length and we both decided that bold is a good choice. All the art should really pop with that deep green color. Especially the quilt. The quilt is still going to hang on a white wall, but the accent wall is close enough to tie everything together.
All of this in time to really enjoy summer. I am so very thrilled!
Off to work for a day of trying to get things done. I want to go to bed no later than 8:00 tonight because 4:00 in the morning comes quickly – especially when you are jazzed about going on a trip. We fly through Minneapolis for our connecting flight. They are having a blizzard there today. Glad we are going tomorrow.
