While I was gone the hubster painted the master bedroom a lovely, peaceful color called "Sand Dollar". He also rearranged the furniture when he was done. It is really lovely and I am so pleased he cares enough to do these kinds of things. He had already painted the master bath before I left and it is a soft yellow. I took down all the dark green flowered pieces (shower curtain, valance, wallhanging) that I made years ago and replaced only the shower curtain with a Target find that is quite light with some soft yellow and periwinkle stripe. I really like the window with just the blinds.
While I was at my Mom's, I did a ton of tough crossword puzzles, played a lot of Yahtzee, watched lots of Tiger games and went to second hand stores. At the Goodwill in Sault Ste. Marie I found a bag full of goodies. And yesterday morning before leaving we stopped at Hope House in St. Ignace and I found a few more.
Hope House finds.My son is coming over this morning to get some last minute Algebra help before his final exam later this afternoon. He is getting a 4.0 right now, but is a bit insecure about a couple of topics that we will go over again. What a lovely change from trying to help him when he was in junior high and high school. He is a lot of fun and is very bright so it is a great visit when he comes over with his homework.
In case you can't tell, I love math! I taught Algebra thru AP Calculus at the high school level for 16 years before retiring to become a blogger and self-taught artist.
Gotta go - my boy (he's 27, but will always be my boy) is due any time now and I need to get some postcards in the mail. I have the baby (she's not really a baby anymore. she will be 2 in mid-September) coming over this evening to spend some time with me while the older sibs go to the movies with Mom and Dad. I am going to see if I can keep her overnight.
