School is in Session


It's late and I am getting my last post of the 
month up on the ol' blog.

Today was my first day back at school since 
March March 12th! All week we will be in 
trainings and preparing for students to arrive 
on Sept 8th. Our kids get to come to the building 
since they have an educational plan and they will 
do better than remote learning that the rest of 
the district is doing.

** I love this pic that I saw on Facebook. Dick and
Jane came before I was in school but I know about

Hope your day went well. Time for me to go to bed,
alarm goes off early now.

Wednesday Fun



I saw this on Facebook, thought it was fun and 
thought provoking. Never really gave it a thought 
until I read this. Lots of people involved in getting 
us on the planet.

More Progress

Hello and Happy Monday!

Well, we made some progress on the 
kitchen project. Paint was put on the 
walls. These are not the colors we had 
initially chose. I wanted red on top and 
an "oatmeal on the bottom. But who knew 
red was so hard to paint with????? So after 
much fussing and some words being said. 
The colors were changed. These were taken 
yesterday. The top was finished and the 
bottom coat was drying.


TA DA both colors are done! There will be 
chair rail added and vertical slats added 
to these two walls. The hall(s) peeking 
behind the yellow towel will be the top 
color.  Click on the pic for a larger view.

Paint Colors--Top: Sunbaked
Bottom: Pale Blush
Trim, baseboards, window and
ceiling will be be Honey Vanilla-
a very light color.

Hoping the kitchen will be close to 
complete by the time I go back to school 
a week from today.

Changing gears on colors was tough. I 
really wanted red but that was not in 
the cards. It will be pulled in with decor.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Spending Time with Friends


Over the last three days I have been able to see work 
friends, two I haven't seen since March 12!! On Monday 
I met a friend for a mid morning snack. Today I had the 
pleasure to host another driveway party for our friend 
Ann, she is the on the right front of the pic above. She 
had a BIG birthday back in June when things were still 
closed. Today with school looming three of us got 
together to celebrate our friend. The gal in the purple 
was my co-worker for 13 years. I am so glad that we have 
stayed in touch.
Between a little lunch, cake and lots of conversation we 
had a great time. Lunch was from a restaurant called 
Hawaiian Brothers so I went with ah Hawaiian decor 
theme. Next week I am looking to meet another friend 
for a picnic lunch. 
Monday the 31st is BACK TO SCHOOL. Sept 8th kids 
come back "remotely."  Not sure how this will all
play out.  Hope everyone is well.
Apparently this new interface cuts pics off too.
the birthday girl got cut off. See next post.

it skipped lines. This new interface is so 

confusing. Still will  not let me type under

It Happened

Well, it happened, the wallpaper came 
Four days and four bags of wallpaper 
later. I tried to get "before's" and 
"after's" but I think I missed some but 
you'll get the idea.

As most of you know this paper was here 
when we moved in. Not my choice by far. 
Now some will say "Melinda, why didn't
you do this years ago?" and I would say 
"I didn't think it would be as  easy as it 
was." Plus I had no idea how many 
layers there would be.

I got ahead of myself here. I did get 
everything off the wall though.

After on the wall above. Look closely on 
the bottom left and you will see my

Before and after.

It was EVERYWHERE! We have "T"  
hall off our kitchen. This hall was added 
on to the house when they added the 
Main  bedroom.

Saturday and the last of it is coming 
down! Not the easiest are to pull 
paper off. So glad to have my helper on 

As you can tell by the last pic...this it 
THE LAST piece to come down. Yippee
Skippe!! Next up...sanding and 

Blogger will not let me comment under 
this last pic:(
