Monday blog love

Sorry I'm a bit late with this. We're back to painting and fluffing up the house again and it's pure chaos over here. The hall closet and linen closet nearly drove the husband around the bend, so we took a breather for a few days. And then ... it hit me that I wasn't ecstatic over our new window treatment color. ACK! Thank heavens the realization came before the order was sent it. So now we're waiting for the new paint choices to dry and the sun to come out (can you believe the sun has been such a stranger in Southern California this summer?! well, along the coast at any rate.) to see if we can stick with the original choice or pick a new one.

On top of that I bought a wall unit at Ikea for our "extra" room (inspired by darling Alicia, of Posie Gets Cozy) ... the catchall room ... and I'm trying to put my craft stuff in it and so far, I'm not happy with it. WAH! Tweaking to commence today! I so envy people who get things right the first time - it takes me forever to hit upon the end result. I'm not a quick study at all, I'm a long, drawn out, tortured one. Woe is me. (if you scroll down Alicia's post, you can see a pine cubby hole wall unit ... I got it in white)

We had some fun over the weekend ... we saw two Shakespeare plays in the park. What a wonderful thing to put on plays for free for the public! On Saturday night we saw Julius Caesar. We generally go out to breakfast on Sunday mornings and we found out about the series from a young man who waits on us nearly every weekend. Turns out he was Caesar in the play. So much fun to get to see someone you know on the stage! And then Sunday night, we went back and saw "Twelfth Night". A tragedy and a comedy. Lots of fun. (But sooooooo cold. I was all bundled up with two sweaters on and a blanket and I was still too cold.)
