Good morning, folks!  I am heading back to work today after taking a short vacation last week and I think I will get more rest at work than I did at home.   I spring cleaned on Wednesday and Thursday then painted the master bathroom and bedroom Friday and Saturday.  The color is pretty much the same as it was, a pale cool blue.  In fact, it may just be a shade lighter and I also touched up the baseboards and door trim, too.  It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint will do for a room.  Everything looks so fresh and clean. 

What brought this paint party on, you ask?  Well, when we built our house seven years ago, we installed plain old frameless mirrors in the master bath.  They are nice and big, but not so pretty especially with the plastic clips.  I have been wanting to frame them for a while and I found out about this product called Mirror Mate.  I promise to have a whole post about them when the project is done, but for now I have ordered three samples so we can choose the one we like best.  Can’t wait!  Before we install these, I wanted the room to have a fresh coat of paint so that is why I had a paint roller or brush in my hand for two days.

I also took a little time to plant some lettuce starts and carrot seeds, too.  Let the gardening begin!

There were a couple of menu items that didn’t get made last week because we had leftovers to eat instead.  These are getting postponed to this week.  I hope everyone has a safe and blessed week!
