prep

Things are a wee bit hectic at the moment. I’m frantically trying to wrap up work for the time being, and prepare for our new little family member, and find time for self (for relaxation and things) in the middle of it all. So not much to share this week, but there are some things going on.

Like painting. Poor Brock. He asked me 6 months ago if I wanted to paint the front bedroom before the baby came and I was like No no no, it’s FINE how it is. I like the warm grey color.

Until 2 weeks ago when I opened my eyes on a Saturday morning and the first words out of my mouth were, “I think we need to paint the front bedroom.” Oopsies. But it’s so much nicer now!

It’s been so dark and rainy it’s been hard to get a good picture, but the color is a light robin’s egg sort of blue. Wishing we would have gone one shade brighter, but too late. I’m sure this will do.

And I’m in the middle of a few non essential sewing projects

There’s something about piles of little clipped corners that always get me.

It’s been pouring rain here for the last few days, which is really nice. We are desperate for rain in California. But still couldn’t resist bringing home a few bunches of wiry looking spring yesterday:

Daffodil season is so great. Cheap colorful flowers in every room possible. Still on the look out for anemones. Isn’t it their time of year yet?

So yep. I feel like I had lots of other things to report, but perhaps not. More soon.

    Oh, a fresh coat of paint always feels great! I hope you're hectic in a good way and enjoying this time!

    robin's egg is one of my very favorite colors. you can always accessorize with the darker/brighter shade to blend it in.

    Ahh – I'm doing the paint debate too. On one hand we're temporarily renting this house and on the other, it would be mighty cute to paint the baby room. Decisions, decisions. Hope you get some good rest time in!
