I cannot believe that the painting was one week ago. Bright splashes of color that seemed bold and unreal when they were first applied now seem like they've been here for months. I adore the green that I was skeptical about. Each morning when I wake up and start the coffee, I sit and write in my journal and enjoy the new feeling in the kitchen. Old lady green? Never.
Above those nasty kitchen cabinets (you know, the dust and grime collection area) I rescued my tiny collection of apothecary jars that I picked up here and there throughout our marriage. I decided to clean them, fill them and display them. My favorite is the orange lentils. In the others are two varieties of popcorn and petite white lentils. Whenever I am in Pittsburgh and in a Whole Foods store, I load up on "rare to me" seeds and grains. I would love a Whole Foods store near me but the closest is Philly area and that is not close enough.
Moving along on my long list of "things to do before the wedding" an item that has been haunting both of us is the third car that is not being driven by anyone and the battery keeps dying on us. Yesterday I said to my husband "we are selling this car by the end of the month". A car service came to jump the car (again) and through chatting with the service man he mentioned that his boss might want to buy the car.
My husband and I drove to the car center and yep, we are now unburdened. Phew. Later my husband stated "Sell the car by the end of the month?? How about within the hour!". Serendipitous.
I will have a full house this weekend. The engaged couple will be here attending to various details and my son decided to come home for a few weeks. I've been cleaning, making beds and soon filling the cupboards with food. I've got some plans for our weekend if the weather is kind.
Just a note that because this weekend we have a long three day weekend, I will probably post the weekend post on Monday instead of Sunday.
Have a good weekend!!
