II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Spring has Sprung!

It got up to 78 degrees here today! Yah-Hoo!! I woke up feeling ready to tackle the day. I had bought paint last night to start painting my bathroom and I was anxious to get it done. I just knew it would be a quick job and I'd be onto something else in no time. "It's just a small bathroom with not many walls, right?" I started at 8 am by getting a bucket of soapy water and washing all the baseboards, trim and light fixtures. They had 2 years worth of dust setting on them and I knew if I was going to do this right...I needed to clean that first. Ick! By 8:30 I was done and was having myself a bowl of cereal--then it was time for the first swipe of the paintbrush. From that moment on, it was like the never-ending project! I painted until 3:30 pm STRAIGHT! Whew!~
As soon as I was finished with that, it was off with the paint-clothes and on with the swimsuit to go out and plant our garden. I bought all the plants Wednesday and they've been sitting in our garage ever since so I knew I better get 'em in the ground while I had time and while the weather was nice. So, until 6 pm I was kneeling in the dirt planting tomato's, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, onions and strawberries. Then at 6, I came in and did my elliptical for 25 minutes on the hardest resistance I could handle and burned 450 calories! Can I get a whoo-whoo! Then it was off to the shower and then over to my mom and dad's for some late supper. I got back home at 8, did the dishes, a load of laundry, cleaned up the living room, gave the kids a bath, put them to bed and now here I sit. Exhausted physically but feeling very peppy mentally. (I have no idea why). Anyhow, thought I'd share a few pics with you all of my before and after bathroom. I am not sure I LOVE the color...but I like it and I think it will grow on me more and more. I'm always so critical of my own work. If it was someone else's house, I'd probably love it. Ha ha!.
Anyway, hope you had a good Ssturday!

What a day! I love the ledge-cut-out thing in your bathroom. So pretty and that's a good, soothing color choice.

I am having the hardest time picking out a color for my mud room which is also a 1/2 bathroom. I think I might have landed on a funky version of sage green. I'll be sure to post pictures when I'm done too.

You are such a hard worker!!

Is that the same blue you used in your bedroom too? Or am I forgetting your bedroom color. Can't wait to see it in person. I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice like seeing it in real life does. Looks great.
