The color seemed a bit more minty than I'd intended but I tried my best to rely on bravado and just kept painting. After the ceiling was done I got started on the walls and what to my wondering eyes should appear...THEY MIXED THE WRONG COLOR!!!
Look different to you??
Then I checked the color I had just painted the ceiling. I stuck some on the correct sample color I'd used. You can see how the sample matched the swatch, but the ceiling color, I'd just spent hours applying...did not.After HOURS and HOURS,
a trip BACK to the home store,
redoing the ceiling,
and even a whole 'nother day I finally have the room mostly done.
Mr. Logo will be replacing the flooring next weekend, YAY!
Alright, I have to go now, the Aged Ps are coming to spend the night.

2. Forgetting what I was saying midsentence,
3. Getting the wrong paint from the dork at the paint counter, having to drive 30 minutes to go get the right paint, waiting for over an hour while the paint clerk tries three different ways to GET the color I want and THEN driving back home and being late to get my son from the birthday party he was attending, etc. etc. etc.
4. Long winded complaints.

I actually have one of those.
Today I'm going to pull out a couple of links from that folder and share them with you,
because you are special, and I'm not just saying that.
Here is a list of 50 things you should know by the time you are fifty.
Here is a BBC website to work on various basic math and English skills, really good for kids.
Here is a group of people who spread only love, love, love.
My beloved, and much linked Shakepearean insulter.
A daily puzzle, like a tasty lil appetizer for your brain.
Lastly we have my little addiction. Just because we don't do Dish Network anymore doesn't mean I don't get my fix.

But golly, what an original thought, she added mentally. The inevitable explanation followed because evidently she was lacking a keen grasp of the obvious.

Next we have birthday gift. My Limers, the pretzel queen, is having a birthday this Friday and since she will be gone, and there is no way her gift will arrive before she leaves, I thought I would post this pic so she can enjoy it after a fashion. These are notecards, from one curly girl to another;
If you couldn't quite make them out it says, "Her life, like her hair, had become unmanageable."
Hope you have a very happy birthday, Lime!
Speaking annual remembrances, I forgot my blog's birthday. It's two now. This blog started out as a dog blog, which is a piece of information that comes in handy if you ever archive dive around here.
The highlights of the last two years...
(just pick one or two, there should be something to interest everyone, I don't actually expect all of you to check each and every link)
Nutella, Ariella, political humor, apolitical humor, Confessions, poetry, flash fiction, trivia quizzes, red hair and naked flesh, music, religion, clumsiness, motorcycles, unusual holidays, scenes of domestic bliss, memes, and beaches.

Anyway... on Saturday we went to an apple orchard and picked about 65 pounds of apples. We also made our own cider which was delicious!
We also stopped to take a picturesque walk along some train tracks. Because I grew up on an island I didn't have any tracks to play on as a kid and there aren't any in the area we live now either. We had a good time and no one fell into the river so it was officially a fabulous excursion.
The six hour drive home was completely uncomplicated. We made really good time and even managed to get to Seattle around 2:30 just as Mr. Logo was getting out of a meeting and so he joined us on our way home. He even drove for the last hour while I took a nap.
The Aged Ps joined us for dinner, Mr. Logo made a pork loin roast with apples and rice and some yummy asparagus. I made an apple pie for dessert, mmmm.
It was a lovely trip and it is so nice to be home.
Now, what was I suppose to be doing?
