So OD and I took my truck down to Half Moon Bay (where I work and where the mechanic is) to drop it off to see if he could find out what's going on with the exhaust leak. That was at 8:15 this morning. We took our time getting home, we stopped by YD's ranch to say hi. She had called me earlier cause when I drive by the ranch I always honk...just to let my presence be known and she wanted to know where I was going in town on my day off.
Then we stopped by a warehouse to stores in town called "Twice As Nice (at half the price)" It used to be a great place to get odds and ends cheap, but it seems that the times have caught up with them too and their prices are almost as bad as everywhere else. A lot of what they have is junk and not worth the reduced price even. But I bought some mustard and dish soap because they still were a little cheaper and I needed them.
When we got home I made a tuna pasta salad for OD and I. It's almost 2:30 and I haven't heard fromt he mechanic yet. I guess I am to be carless for a couple of days! EEK!
After we ate I walked in circles for a bit until I decided that I would get to painting again. I only got a half a wall done today. I did the south wall in that room, which has a window in it. And a big hole where someone had a little anger attack and threw a large appliance. Out of that lemon I am making lemonade...I am making some little curio built in shelves for my little critter statues that I have been collecting for years. They will finally have a new home!
The weather here is absolutely gorgeous today. It is mild temps and a slight breeze. Tonight sometime late the weather people are promising rain. Please, don't let them be kidding with us! We really need the rain!
So here is a progress picture of the room...It's really hard to see, but there is a difference in color between the two walls. The wall on the right is a few tones lighter than the left wall. I like them both so far. This will probably be a room I like much better in the daylight, at night the colors take on a deeper hue and I'm not so sure I like that. We'll see when I get my craft lighting on in there, it may be good day or night! Who knows?
