Twice in One Week

I was stood up twice last week.

The first time was my fault really, as my schedule changed several times (bronchitis postponed radiation) and when I reverted back to the original plans, I assumed the other person had as well.

The second time I think I was just forgotten. I had a lovely vanilla latte before painting and so all was not lost. It stings, though, because the other person picked the second Saturday of each month as our appointed “meeting time.” I did email the night before to see if we were still meeting to no response (not unusual) so I went anyway. I still haven’t heard anything from the other person. *sigh*

It’s hard not to “go there” with it, but I’m trying.

Painting went well. I’m done inside (for now) having painted the dining room green tea leaf, the bathroom and office brandied pears, and my bedroom dove gray. I even finished all the trim work that’s been lingering for a long, long time. The tile in the thresholds is dark brown so it seemed like a good idea to trim the doors and linen closet in a dark brown. I’ve been looking at it all unfinished for over a year, thinking it would have been simpler to not do it; however, now that it’s done, I’m pleased with the look overall.

No more dark, hard to match colors anywhere.

And I can still move today, although my legs are protesting at times.

New baseboards will be put in later this week and will be the finishing touch on what I consider the hard, physical work.

The new curtains are up, except in my bedroom. I have no idea what I’m going to do in there now. Dove gray only occurred to me when I was picking out colors, and while I really like it, it’s going to take a little time for me to decide on curtains and bedding. Perhaps the upside is that just about any color will go well.

The new dining room table should come later this week. I purposely didn’t buy matching chairs so I’ll need to scavenger for some interesting (not necessarily the same) chairs for it.  I also have no idea what I’m going to do art-work wise in the dining room. The blank walls are fine for now, soothing almost.
