I ran across a new-to-me word recently and it pretty much describes my post for today. The word is gallimaufry. I do read a lot but I have to say this word is one I hadn't yet encountered.
Dictionary dot com says that it means a hodgepodge; jumble; confused medley. 2, a ragout or hash.
Sound interesting yet? Ha! Well, this is my way of saying that this post is likely to be all over the place today. A gallimaufry. Or, if you prefer, a hodgepodge of stuff to share.
I'm driving myself nuts trying to decide on a color for the bathroom. It will probably be ready for painting after tomorrow.
Here's another shot of the condo that has the color I want. I called the condo Friday and they are supposed to look it up when they have time. Hopefully, they'll get to it soon! Meanwhile, my paint sample collection is growing. I've gotten close to the shade I'm looking for, but the color looks different depending on the light. Just like the walls look different according to what time of day it is or the kind of light in the room.
Help me, Rhonda. I'm about to put all the colors in a hat and draw one out and say this is it!
In spite of some very chilly nights, most days have been nice and we have a few geraniums still blooming as well as some of our Knockout Roses. We put away most of the flower pots over the weekend. That is about all BG and I accomplished. Mr. Grumpy Face is feeling puny with a cold and even stayed home from work today. I call him grumpy because he is when he doesn't feel good. I am the same way, I'm sure!
Our daughter and her fella have been busy getting the hardwood floors done at The Project. This is another before shot showing the sanded area and then with one coat of polyurethane. Most of the floors have now had 4 coats with some sanding in between. The last coat will be put on the bedroom floors this evening. They are looking great!
Let's get out of the house for a minute and away from all that paint pondering and sick men and enjoy the nice fall day. Most of our leaves have fallen or have turned brown. The tree above in the back yard is always the last one to lose it's leaves. The tree in the first photo and next photo is at the other house aka The Project, so there are a few pretty trees left but they won't last much longer.
Did I mention that the carpenter worked all weekend? Oh yeah. Fun times around here. lol! There will be lots of work to do after he's finished. Dust is everywhere from the sanding of the sheetrock even though he kept the door closed. So, if I disappear for awhile from blogland, you know that I'm busy cleaning and painting. We're about ready to begin painting at the other house, too.
Take care everyone and have a great week! I'm going to the kitchen now and make some homemade chicken noodle soup for
