This week has been hot. 102. 103. It's September, right? An East Coast friend posted a picture in long sleeves, pants, and boots on Facebook. I almost cried. Southern California is notorious for skipping fall. My favorite season, of course. September is here and I am just now running the air conditioning all day. Doesn't seem right.
The house continues to keep me busy with cleaning and organizing. I should say re-organizing, thanks to my three children. I had to make some returns to Lowes this week and stopped through the paint and flooring sections. The inside walls need a new coat of paint. We put painting off when we moved in due to my indecision. Our second major project (after the backyard) is replacing the flooring downstairs. We are switching from carpet to laminate (wood). I picked up two samples of the colors I would like.
My first option for paint/flooring is:
Acorn or Maple flooring
The second option is:
Which combo do you like? I have wanted gray but I think the yellow/maple combo is more me.
Before I sign off I have to share a (blurry) picture of my little engine that could. Do you remember the massacred lime tree? Here is the latest photo update on its recovery. We have blooms. I think it is a good sign!
