Been a busy week. Packing up our bedroom and I had two floor to ceiling bookcases. BFF and her Mom are coming out Friday and we are doing some marathon painting. Never got around to decorating our bedroom. Still have builder's off white paint on the walls. A couple years ago decided it was a goal to finish our bedroom...so after 25 years we're gonna do it. It seems so hard to do by myself with working full time and watching over my mother in law and other things of "life". So have had the colors taped on the wall for a month or so...and we're gonna do it. For years I've looked at the huge amoutn of work and think...I can't do it or I'll do it at another time...NOW IS THE TIME!
They were originally coming out to finish up the kitchen...but we're adding that to it...why not go for it all. We are painting the kitchen and putting up a border and painting a wall in the dining room. All of that is in preparation for our daughter's wedding in August as we are having a brunch Saturday morning after the wedding for all the family and out of town guest to enjoy spending time with all their "NEW FAMILY" and time with the bride and groom.
So wanted to get bedroom so we can move furniture around to paint...and then store stuff so they can each still have a bedroom to sleep in. We have a 4th spare bedroom but son and hubby are going to Indy 500 and son will have to have a place to sleep before going and the night they come back...so still trying to make room so he can sleep at home....
Got my catcus unhibernated from the garage and some cages around my peony bushes and butterfly bush before it's too late. My back flower bed is gorgeous this spring with the poppy's blooming and my iris' in full bloom. Just love the spring and all the beauty.
Spending this week now cleaning the rest of my house...guest bathroom etc.
I can't tell you how much I OWE my BFF and her Mother. They are such hard working friends. It's hard to ask for help and they jump right in...and then I wonder why I didn't ask sooner. I don't know how I can repay them for all they've done for me over the years. They are just the BEST! They even put flowers on my father's grave for Memorial Day with their list of their family....and it's out of their way to do it. I never ask...they just do it for me....and tell me later. It touches my heart in ways I can't express. They are just the best!
We will fit in some time to have fun...go shopping or adventure somewhere in the midst of it all. The Strawberry Festival is June 1 and if they want to stay that long...we'll be off to the Festival too! Eating luscious strawberries and enjoying the craft vendors....and walking the levy.
Plus the very best is they are so much fun to be around. We laugh, joke and have the best time. We are three nuts in a pod. To look at each other we just laugh!
