Painting my Home

Hi Dear Friends!

I'm so sorry I've been missing in action lately.  I'm using up some of my vacation time to try to take a bite out of painting the house.  So far I have finished painting my dining room and I hope to be finished the living room later today.  The main section has been painted but I'm now working on the section with Some of My Favourite Things.  It should definitely freshen things up and guess what?...the wallpaper in both the dining room and the living room is completely gone.  For me, THAT'S EXCITING!!!  I will post some of the before and after pictures at a later date.  I still have trim and doors to repaint lol!!  

Hang in there and please don't go away, I just love having you come for a visit.  I've been trying to get to some of your blogs but time is short as I work right into the evening.

I woke up to this beautiful sunrise this morning and it made waking up early worth it.  I'm not a morning person but things have been changing a bit.  Must be age!!  It wasn't near as vivid as the one I saw here (that sunrise was unbelievable), but beautiful all the same.  I appreciate them all.


The weather vane you see in the bottom left corner is that of a large wooden bird feeder.  Unfortunately, it's difficult to get to as the cedar shrubs have grown up around it.


Well folks, it's back to work for me.  My hubby has so graciously given me his cold.  He's been quite sick with it and today I woke up with symptoms.  I've been praying I wouldn't get it because there's just too much to be done.  Stay tuned and enjoy the remainder of your week!

  4. Such a pretty sunrise. I'm not a morning person either and so far (age) hasn't made me one. Sounds like you've been busy. We need to paint here too but I think we'll hire it out as none of us likes painting.

  6. Evening, what a beautiful sunrise, the colour of the sky is so pretty. Life does get busy so blogging sometimes gets put off. Finally had a warm day today but rain the next couple of days.Blessings Francine.

  7. Congrats on getting the wallpaper removed, Kelly! It sounds like you're having a very productive vacation. I look forward to seeing the before and after photos. My parents are in the midst of home renos and I was THRILLED that the hideous '80s wallpaper in the kitchen has finally been removed! Yippee!

  8. Beautiful sunrise! I am a morning person, but soon the sun will be up before me. Good luck with all your painting. Exciting stuff when you get that new colour on the walls. Removing wallpaper that others put up takes their presence out of the place and makes it all the more your own home. Hope you both feel better soon ... springtime colds are no fun.

  12. Oh my, bless your heart! Painting is always a tedious chore, and I sure hope you don't get sick in the middle of it! I'm so happy to hear your wallpaper is gone, I know that is a huge plus for you! I am praying for you dear friend, that you kick the cold to the curb - lots of garlic and vitamin C works pretty good for us here most of the time. I can't wait to see your pictures of all you are doing... and oh my, the sunset you shared is gorgeous!!!! Love the bright colors. Much love to you today!

How exciting to have the wallpaper down and getting the painting done you have wanted, sorry to hear you caught your hubby's cold, hopefully you will be able to kick it soon and get done everything you were hoping for. Yes it is just wonderful to be up to see the pretty sunrises, my dog makes sure and gets me up to be taken out so that I don't miss them :) Beautiful pictures!
