As you can tell from the dates on my post, I’ve taken a little blogging break. I’ve had lots of projects around my home to manage and am still waiting for some to be finished. So I have been a tad distracted.
This past Saturday Leah’s school had a Paint the Path Pink 5K Walk/Run Breast Cancer fundraiser. Paige, Leah and I went and walked. There were 650 people registered. It was a beautiful Spring day for walking and over $25,000 was raised for Breast Cancer Research. The second picture is kids and dogs. Leah is on the bottom row about 5 down.
Paige will be mad that I posted this picture with her eyes closed. Sorry Paige, but it was the only one we got that day.
Here is some other painting news from the home front.
Finally – all the faux painting is gone and replaced with Sherwin Williams Latte for the walls and Ralph Lauren Metallic Summer Gold for the ceiling. I’m so happy with the colors. I have yet to hang the artwork back up in the room. I just have issues with nailing into newly painted walls. I’ll work up the courage soon I hope.
The kitchen and family room also were painted. The family room is Latte now and the kitchen is Nomadic Desert. I’m waiting for my fireplace stone to come in. When I get that done, I’ll post a picture of the fireplace and paint.
My other gynormous project I had to deal with was the shower in my master bath. We had the master bathroom renovated right after we moved into this house nearly 5 years ago. We loved the look of it, but after time went on we realized something was not right. After much deliberation between tile people, plumbers and me in the middle we decided the tile should be removed and the shower pan checked out. YUCK! – rotted wood and mold….. This was worst than we thought it would be.
So I now know the repercussions of an improperly installed shower pan.
I kept thinking of a spiritual analogy in this scenario. You know like sometimes everything looks good on the outside but boy it can be rotten on the inside. Better get it checked out and fixed or it will fall apart.
I’ll post pictures of the newly re-done shower soon. This post has run long enough.
Hope you are starting to see a little Spring where you are.
