Yeah. Didn't go near any of them. But I did get to the city to pick up Abbie's bridesmaid dress.
While I was out running errands, Man-boy got his schoolwork done and went to work on the backyard. Most of the leaves haven't fallen yet, but we've learned not to wait too long or the job is unbearable.
Please do not take notice of my dead tomato plants that I haven't yet torn out of the garden. Pete tried to stay out of the way. He's not a fan of the mower.
Here's a shot of the new tile the boys put in at the front entry. I love how it turned out.
Ben's been working on the sunroom too. It used to have sliding glass doors on three sides, and leaking skylights in the ceiling. The boys tore it all apart last year and installed windows and took out the skylights. It's been waiting patiently since then.
There was a lot of mudding and sanding to do, which takes time because you have to let it dry between coats. We were finally getting close to painting time, so we picked out a beautiful yellow. We tried to find it a tad lighter, but couldn't find a lighter one we liked, so we went with this one. Ben decided to try out a small piece of wall before he went painting the whole thing.
When he first painted this, I loved it. Ben, not so much. I still love it in real life, but in these pictures it looks hideous. Ben says he will paint the room this color if I want it, but he will not take responsibility for it.
This is where you come in. Please give your honest opinion of the yellow, and I emphasize honest. Will it come across as cheery or schizophrenic?
Oh my word, I just realized it's brighter than the bananas on the counter.
Be truthful. I can take it.
Be thankful ~
