Today's Projects


I thought we were out of projects the kids and I could do until our final shipment arrives. I was wrong. However, we may now be out of projects we can do alone. 

Roses' encouragement that uneven simply means personality spurred me on to try hanging more of the wall quotes. I still have one for our room, and a couple which can't be placed until our other furniture, ladders and/or appliances arrive. 


Kid's bathroom...put the target on the seat as I just COULDN'T put it in the bowl.  We put the "Put Me Down" on each toilet in the house. LOL 

Still haven't gotten this tub clean enough to use...but someday I will make a nice oasis here....I plan to decorate the master bath with an onsen theme...if I can ever find the photos I had from Japan....Grrrr.

Family Room Wall 

Guest Bath - which we  use a LOT as it's off the family room

Laundry Room Door

Not my DREAM for my pantry door....but it will work for a rental. I need to buy some chalk. 


We didn't have enough to do the whole door; but had some left over....so I copied Dorothy's idea. 

We continued our new habit of a mid-afternoon icy drink break around the fire pit. Today's drink was a watermelon frosty and it was awesome! Soaking up the Vit D. 


Arielle & I love having our wok and veggies back - DINNER!

I'm not sure WHY it took all day to do this much - but it did. We'll see what we can find to do tomorrow. I have a few things in mind:
  • Master Suite - at least figure out what to do with the pictures
  • Maybe attempt a couple of more wall decals by guessing where furniture will be placed
  • FIND the cards I was given as a MOPS speaker so I can get a collage made
  • I guess send onsen photos to be printed at shutterfly
  • Michael will kill me if I attempt the shelves and big, heavy pictures. LOL 
Michael will be out until at least 9:00 p.m. tomorrow. It's his first week in the office and he was volunteered to do inspections at other units which cost him  three days of work.....he has things to get done tomorrow.....We won't be mobile....so we will find things to do here. Muhahahaha....or maybe I'll put the whip to rest and we'll spend the day reading, watching movies and playing games. LOL

Wall decals were bought from a variety of companies on Amazon.com and from Enchanting Quotes. We had one from Amazon which was wonky - the letters had to be transferred to the sticky film before we could put them on the wall.  All from Enchanting Quotes have been great.

Looks great! We have used two wall decals in this house (after seeing how great they looked in yours - maybe your TX house?) and got them both from Amazon as well.

Too funny. I had one in Japan. We liked it so well and it was easy to remove that I ordered more. I planned on getting verses but went wild with other sayings too.

I only have one wall quote in the entire house and I just put it up this past winter! I'm a little slow... wall quotes will be outdated before I ever fully get around to using them!
