A Little Pink Fizz to Brighten Your Day


Take a little of this

Add some of these

A little squirty squirt

And a brightly colored garnish

I’ve also used fruit juice, and berry infused vodka for a treat to enjoy while studying on the deck or fixing a rough day.

Free Paint

Free paint?  Yes please. 

Ace Hardware has been giving away free quarts of paint periodically throught the summer. Each time they ran the promotion, I snagged a quart.  Soon I had enough to make this magical brightness happen.  Did I mention it was free?  FREE!!!

Pretty freaking amazing considering we started with this…

If you need a painting tutorial, check out this one, or this one.  The only thing that is more boring than painting is writing about painting.  If you missed in the in progress pic, check it out and see how change can happen overnight.

All that is left is painting the trim, touching up the ceiling, making a new bed, lamps, end tables, vanity area, dog beds, curtains and sleep.  I need a plan.

Quick comic relief


Have you painted anything lately? Created a seemingly endless to do list?

The garden my mother made

Last year, my folks came to the hot sweaty mess that is Georgia.  They thought they were coming for a nice relaxing visit with their youngest daughter.  Too bad for them I saw it as an opportunity to exploit some free labor.

In honor of Mother’s Day, here is the garden my Mom helped to create

How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?

How a rough day became a good day

I was having a rough day.  Then I went home, and I smelled this

And drank this

And hugged her

After all that, I felt silly for thinking that I was having a bad day.  I simply had not been home, where all the good the parts were.

What are your favorite things at home? How do you cheer yourself up after a hard day?
