Day 298-301 – Fall Fun

Day 298 –


Red Water


I can’t take credit for this shot.  I found it somewhere on Flickr when I was searching for suitable print ideas for my home office.  Red, in all its tones and variations, is still my favorite color.

I’m sensing a theme here.

The load




Day 125 and 126 – Bright

Day 125 – I posted this on my Twitter today, but I still wanted to include on my blog.   I think Lil’B is the smartest baby ever!  Ok, maybe not, but she is cute though.  Check her out:

Day 126 – I’m usually not a fan of driving in the rain, especially at night, but tonight was different.  Even though the glare was very overwhelming to look at, I tried to find the beauty in it.  There was something especially stunning in the way street lamps and green traffic lights reflected on the wet pavement.  And the sky was so dark, you almost couldn’t tell where the road ended and the sky began.  Pretty neat.  Not exactly loads of fun to drive in, but still.

Day 37 – A Change is as Good as a Rest

We moved into our first home that we (i.e. the bank) own in early August 2009.  I promised myself that we’d live here for a year before doing any major redecorating.   There just doesn’t seem to be any point in drastically changing things until they’ve been given a chance.  That, and we can’t afford it because we just “bought” a house.

But my hubby and I couldn’t help but notice that certain rooms were, to put it mildly, getting us down.  They just weren’t comfortable and/or functional.

So we decided to take matters into our own hands.  With a few bucks for paint and simple accessories, we transformed our downstairs bathroom.

Our lower level bathroom has no windows, is very dark and is barely bigger than a closet.  Not at all pleasant.  So we took a risk and painted it an orangy-white.  The pictures don’t do it justice, but I think  it’s beautiful.  Every day, when I walk into that room now, I smile.  A simple color change has made all the difference.  Or maybe that’s the aromatherapy candle?  Either way, I like it.
