Here it is, Sunday night. The clock says 9:15 p.m., but my body says it's an hour earlier. I hate, despise, and generally loathe every time we switch from "regular" to Daylight Savings Time and back again. If I had my choice, we'd stay on DST year in and year out.
After all, I'm old. I can be cantankerous if I want to.
Speaking of being old, it seems as though the personal summers I thought were a thing of the past, aren't. I can't understand why everyone yells at me when I turn on the attic fan. After all, it's at least 68 degrees in the house and I'm breaking a sweat.
You'd think they could cut me a little slack.
Boyfriend and Girlfriend were here for the evening meal, and the topic at the dinner table was gross animal stories. With apologies to any vegetarian or animal rights readers out there, of course. The conversation took a turn toward roadkill, livestock castration, and how many different animals can be made into chili.
Anyone want to make a reservation at Maison de Chris?
In other news, one large wall remains to be sheet rocked before the mudding begins. Hubster works at his own pace, and I will not hurry him. I called to request the furniture delivery be delayed by a week, and I may have to call again depending on how things go.
This is a reasonable facsimile of one of the chairs. In real life the print is smaller and the cinnamon color shows up much more. The couch and chair-and-a-half are the same cinnamon color without the floral print.
I believe in some parts of the country they call that a "solid color."
Which just goes to show I always take the long way around everything I do.
So Interpeeps, I need your advice. Knowing that I now have actual WALLS to PAINT, what color would you paint those very walls? The sage green that you can't quite see on the floral print is out, since Hubster feels as though we have too much green in the house. That would be our entryway and hallway. And bear in mind that one of these chairs will go in front of each window on either side of the fireplace, so I'll have to have window treatment suggestions as well.
And the decorating? It is not my strong suit. Even though I do love this chair, as hideous as some of you may think it is.
Anxiously awaiting your opinions, and if you could give me URLs so I could see the colors you're talking about, por favor, I would greatly appreciate that!
