When white paint doesn't come out white

Last week I posted about how I was excited to finally paint our front bathroom walls a bright white! At the time I had been delayed due to a painful bone spur in my right foot that was swollen.  So on Saturday I was feeling much better and decided to paint the bathroom.

And I'm not happy with it...

Sometimes a NO is forced on you - and I don't like it

I read a wonderful blog entry yesterday from The Nester about how you have to have NO and YES in your life - and it was a wonderful post that I could so relate to as I continue to make some changes in my life this year.

However, when a NO is forced on you by life - such as a continuing injury/pain that interferes with your plans - then I don't like it!  I got up yesterday very motivated to walk three miles on the walking path at our church AND to come home and start painting the small bath at the front of the house that my husband uses each morning.  He was on call for 24 hours so it was the perfect time to paint the walls a beautiful new bright white!

Garden plans are a fail but progress continues elsewhere.

RAIN!  That is our problem this year - lots and lots of rain.  In fact more is heading our way today. For my raised garden plans and ambitious - those are a total fail because of the rain.

A few days at the beach and with family

My husband is on vacation this week so we took advantage of this time to visit my mom and sisters in North Carolina.  We also took a quick day trip to the beach at Surf City to enjoy the sand and sun for a while.  It was so nice to visit family and to enjoy a day with just the four of us too - even with the slight sun burns.  And my sister, who now owns her own photography studio, was able to make my daughter very happy and take her Senior portraits.  My daughter was not thrilled with the school's photos and session and my sister was able to put a smile back on her face.  Thank God for talented family members.

This week I will be catching up on band paperwork - we officially started the new season last night so I have lots to do to get the books ready for the new year.  This week I will also be planning a few updates to our front bath and a couple of pieces of furniture that have been calling my name.  Hopefully I will be able to reveal more later this week.

For now I am looking through our photos from the trip and trying to figure out where I can use this really cool photo my husband took underneath the pier.  This may just find a home on the wall in the front bath.

Hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend.
