Sometimes You Need a Swift Kick in the Rear
The next time I decide to paint any room larger than 6' x 6' go ahead and give me a swift kick. And the next time my sweet husband looks at me with complete sincerity and asks if I'm sure I don't want to hire someone to paint and I say no, just kick me. Hard.
And, the next time I take on this project the day after we get home from vacation the week of school starting for my son and my daughter readying herself to leave for college. Yes, you know. Just give me a kick. And, my parents and extended family are coming to town the following week for a birthday celebration...Yes. Really. I did this. Knowingly.
Three rooms and two hallways painted a gorgeous warm gray. Thankfully I love the color and the work was worth it!
So this lunacy explains my blogging absence and I've missed you sorely. There has been so much happening. We've gotten cooler temperatures, a little rain with more on the way and there are so many signs that fall is coming!
Leroy are blooming! They are delightfully charming and old fashioned and have lived up to the expectation of JOY I anticipated. I adore them.
But my favorite fall story is this little fall aster...
This little aster gives me hope and makes me smile every time I see it. I want to be like that little aster.
