I didn't have chest x-rays at work scheduled today. And my living room redecorating project has been calling my name the past few weeks. So I took a day off to answer the call. I've been painting away all day. The living room color scheme is the top picture. The turquoise is the accent color. The walls are doneish---Rob has to do the upper edging because my skillz with dark paint next to white ceiling is not so great.
I plan to use peacock colors as decorating accents. Today, I got a good start on my coffee table, which is being repurposed a second time, and a cute bird plaque I got at a thrift store that was plain wood with a pink bird. The table is going to be various peacocky paisley designs in dark brown, turquoise, dark blue, light blue, gold and silver. So far it's pretty coolish.
I'll post pictures when I get the room together.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
