Green Makes Me Happy~

It has been one of those weeks…
so busy my head is spinning…
I have not been here …
or visiting you all very much this week…

Soccer started a couple weeks ago…

Taxi mom has been using more gas lately…

and

Sammy’s school changes classes every 11 weeks…

cool stuff… love that he can take a variety of classes…

every 11 weeks our schedule changes…

we are getting used to our new routine…

and

of course…

I had some paperwork to take care of…

So today Mr. McFunny took the day off work …

bless his heart…

to be Mr. Dad for the whole  day…

So I could I turn this stack of workbooks…

into this pile…
of large print copies…

I copied all that today!!!

yikes!

earlier this week I found a few extra hours to copy these books…

so I have been assembling these little large print books…

all week…

look at this stack…

a little daunting…

just a smidge!  =)

it is Refreshing to be 1/2 way done…

most of the copying is nearly finished …

just a few more books to enlarge…

Until next year… =)

so…

Since I was feeling a little overwhelmed this week…

I made a few plans to cheer myself up…

before I hit the copy machine!

You see Green makes me happy…

When I was in Pier 1 last week …

I found this…

so I slipped out of the house a little early…

to go and buy 2 of these cute little GREEN birdie plates today…

as inspiration…

we’ll get back to that…

After a quick trip to Pier 1 …

I went to lunch…

in downtown Olympia…

There are a few funky murals and paintings scattered around town…

It gives Olympia character…

I like this one…

a vintage phone …

and cell phones…

and puzzle pieces??

and payphones….

and a clock…

there is always time to stay connected…

Phones help us stay in touch with loved ones…

My lunch today…

was with a very dear friend…

whom I do not stay in very good touch with…

but there is a special bond between us…

I met her in downtown Olympia… =)

in March of 1987…

yikes… 23 years ago?  gasp!

You see … I was her nanny when I was 17 years old!

crazy!

anyway…

we talked, we laughed and I cried (big baby that I am!)  =)

next time I won’t let 2 years pass before we have lunch again!  =)

I am thankful we have maintained our friendship all these years…

I smiled the rest of my day…

Lunch with someone you cherish will do that… =)

I was even smiling while I was standing at the stupid amazing copy machine that enables my son to see his school work clearly… for 2 1/2 hours today!

So … I also planned something fun after visiting Mr. Copier…

I figured I needed to be cheerful before and after my visit with that stupid fabulous machine…

Green Paint really makes me happy…

it is weird …

I know!

I have been trying to pick the perfect green paint for my kitchen…

for way way too long…

so I went to Home Depot…

determined to come home with green paint in hand!

I hate this part!!

who knew there could be so many different shades of one color….

Really!?? I have to pick one…
what if it isn’t the right one…
$35. a gallon…
the pressure to pick the right one…
=)

I think I may have it narrowed down…
maybe!
I have a few green things …
that I love…


that I can get inspiration from…
I love love this rug!

and this adorable tea pot
(please don’t look too closely at the cob webs on it!! )
it was a wedding gift…
and we chipped it …
so we put it up high to look at for a while…
I think it is time to dust off the cob webs and use it again?

I love green …
it gives me explainable joy…

I mean really…

look at the color of my blog…

I did not realize how much green I buy…

I even have green shoes, sweaters, handbags and purses!

this was a lovely gift from our neighbors…
after we house sat their kitty for 2 weeks…
while they were in Italy (sigh)
I love it…
I think she saw my tea pot and color matched it!?! =)
or I am just that lucky! ha ha!

I needed this green box…

it holds my garlic right now…

I painted the kids bathroom in this beautiful pale green …

it is called rejuvenate..

you see…

After I painted my bedroom this color first…

I needed to have another green room…

I like green …
it makes me happy…

and

I like to paint…
especially when I am in a twit…

it relaxes me…

weird … I know!

so though I wanted to have a paint roller in my hand tonight…

I will have to settle for the green birdie plate… tonight…

maybe tomorrow I will sneak back to Home Depot…
and just pick one already!

wish me luck!
