Well alot of painting has gotten done around here. All the bedrooms are done now. The master I did a few weeks ago. Friday I painted the front bedroom (this is the room that had the dreaded wallpaper in it that took 1.5 weeks to remove). I painted it with Valspar paint and it was called Winter in Paris. I don't know how they make up the names but it sounds and looks pretty!
Today I painted the back bedroom. It was also Valspar paint and it is called Ghost Ship. It looks more gray in the photo, but in person there is more blue in it. I wanted something very subtle. I'm happy with it!

I will be taking a 2-day break from painting. I was almost done with the painting and I went to step down and lost my balance a little and slammed my hip into the door casement! I'm nursing that along. I also have some other appointments the next few days that would interfere with painting or projects anyway.
My veggies in the veggie trug are going crazy! The summer yellow squash, tomato and cucumbers are just exploding! I have really enjoyed the summer squash many nights last week and this weekend. Yesterday I grilled a steak, steamed summer squash and I roasted some potatoes on the grill in a foil packet with olive oil and rosemary from my garden and it was wonderful! (See below)
I started a garden where there was never one before at this house. I dug up the sod and got some plants in that I had brought from the other house and ordered from plant suppliers. To my surprise this little daylily bloomed! I love the color.
On Saturday I walked around and looked at my plants. I could not pass up this lovely hydrangea blossom! Most of mine were blue but this one is purple! I love it. I have a really dark purple one I put in when I first moved here in the front garden. This is lighter but just as beautiful!
