I'm taking 15 minutes to "relax" right now....my car battery was flat this morning and I'm waiting for it to get enough charge to start. A lovely start to a Monday morning

Plus, i can't call my partner to tell him because he forgot to pay his month-to-month cell phone bill. You would think that after the company sends him a couple messages each month and it happens the 29th of every month, he would figure this one out. Nope, every damn month I have to hear him bitch about not knowing this was the day his phone was going to get turned off...he's only had this company something like 2 years now.

Morning all. That outdoor area is gorgeous. I could look forward to summer looking at it but then I think of the flies and it wouldn't be so relaxing at all.

How weird is this weather, we have 69.8 today in the middle of winter and I didn't even need the heaters on tonight. Bit of a worry though how hot our summer might be. Nothing exciting to tell, so I think I will get some beauty sleep. Night.

Afternoon for me now, so I'll just say Hi everyone!! :)
Love the patio eztia, very relaxing.
I had tree men come and plant a fifteen foot Crape Myrtle today and electrician to run new line through the garden (neatly) to the old front lantern post. Also carpenters to work in some loose ends and the new square posts for new lanterns front and back. My sis and her friend just left, so it's just us and my mother here now. Quiet no visitor days for the rest of week and weekend. But there's a lot of noise here now, carpenters and vacuum cleaner and laundry. Think we were running a hotel and this is the busy time between check out and check in!! Finally the tile guy will come to put in my flat cut pebble outdoor shower floor, can't wait, love to use outdoor shower. Also have a line of lavender plants to put in along the walkway, mmmmmm love that smell. This place is really becoming a beautiful garden retreat, we didn't plan to go this far, but I'm glad we did. After all the time not doing too much because of deer at main house, we are stretching out our horticultural muscles.
Feels good :)

Angela, if you want those orange pillows and throw in the room, I know you liked them, don't take them out to make someone else happy. I told you serenity is a feeling that your room will give you, not just a pale room color will achieve it. The coral was and is a beautiful touch, at the very least keep the orange pillows and use in living room so you can bring them back into bedroom when you realize you miss that pop of color. I don't want to get too into it on the thread, too much interference from all sides. Stay true to your island girl roots, not all washed out. That room will end up white and beige if some people have their way. You know I love ya, soul sista!!! From the heart :)

Actually Michelle-I didnt take them off because of that, they were too dark and honestly did not want to have to pay another $50 just for inserts because they did not fit the current inserts that I have. if that makes any sense. I had to buy inserts for euro and bird pillow so I think that I can get something else that fits size of inserts that I like. It would have cost almost another $100 just for inserts and I could not justify that. You know at the end of the day there will be orange in that room. Trust me on that.

Afternoon ladies......well, the door is installed, finished trimming it out this morning. Still to do -- seal joints, finishing prepping the siding and trim board, paint, change out hardware and brick the steps (solid bricks that will match the door sill........have to make a trip to HD this afternoon and select colors. Thinking a cream color for the trim, saddle tan for the siding and a dark green with a hint of blue in it for the brick. Think a sea blue green for the door. Not sure what the color numbers are, I'm a visual kind of guy and have to have the 3x4 color chips in front of me...............another day's work for sure not counting laying the brick. Had 2 long days this weekend and paying for it today.....so other than the trim work this morning.... taking it easy.

Kimdee, how did the golf event turn out this weekend?

Angela, bedroom looks great..... hey, have you ever thought about Pewter colored walls.....I've heard they're in style now.......(cough, cough)...........Just sayin.

Thanks for the visual Ez, I'm trying hard - you just have to know our flies to understand what an effort it is, and when the sun starts to set the flies go to bed and are replaced by sandflies and mozzies. Maybe I will bring some citronella candles, they come in buckets no fancy candelabra needed.

Spell check can be hilarious. We have a large store here called Harvey Norman but as a joke it is often referred to as Hardly Normal. Spell check agrees and changes it every time.

Roo-Yes, I love the chest and the bed. So happy with that. I am keeping the two euros and bird pillow for sure but I had to buy inserts for those also so that is why they are not on the bed. It gets pretty expensive buying new pillows and inserts.. I have removed the throw and ginger pillow from bed. Feel that it takes away some of the tranquility that I am going for. Also the ginger pillows are a different shape from the current inserts that I have. the pillows were $34 a pop, not sure if I wanted to pay some more money for different inserts. I had the throw in the living room so it did not cost me anything to use it in the bedroom. That cause a bit of issue with some of my helpers. Too funny. I have thirty day so will make the final decision once the nightstands, curtains and drapes is up. First pic is what it was, second pic is what it is now. Those are the curtains and nightstands that I ordered.

Hi kd - same old, same old, here thanks, housework, Houzz chat. Weather is all over the place, sun comes out and it is warm then the clouds come over and the cold starts seeping into the bones. Don't know what we did before the layered look but I just seem to put clothes on and take them off all day.

Angela I love those cushions so much it would be such a shame if you can't use them. Can you cut the inserts to fit? Once they are in as long as they sit properly no one will know. I think someone else said about checking for cheap cushions and using them or just the inserts instead of paying big bucks for something just because it isn't "standard" size. The terminology confuses me at times - we call the decorative pillows, cushions - pillows are the ones you sleep on - OK?? We can get cheap polyester pillows here for about $7 each so assume you would be able to as well and they can be cut down to use as an insert - much cheaper.

Love the smocking on the curtains, they are amazing. I once had a nightgown done like that and just loved it.

Funny when LA dd came this time after a 2 1/2 year absence she announced that our Aussie accent was just the worst, it was a disgrace and we were a joke. We do have a habit of shortening words which she really notices now and how many more words Americans use in a sentence. She was giving examples that I can't remember now but the sentences were quite long that prompted me to say that you write the book, we send a telegram. I definitely have to use all my vowels when she is around and be especially careful on Sat-ur-days.

I love the current trend for dealing with kids who cry or throw tantrums is to tell them to "use their words". It sounds really cute and actually works - wish someone had have come up with that when my joeys were little.

I am good...working on business stuff, forming an LLC, getting insurance, etc. Learning a lot! Found a great business insurance agent who knows the ropes in re: State and local licensing, etc...helping us to avoid errors. We ARE definitely enjoying the boat...it's worth a million dollars to see the monkey boy enjoy it...and I love the fresh air and water...planning to get back into the water ASAP.

LOVE love love your pillows btw...and bedspread/duvet cover...The coral is the ticket to add pizzaz, yet keeping the room serene. Also your dresser....it has a Bahamain look to it....I love the Bahamian mansion furniture.

Jayme, that is the first time that I heard of the dress code but as I told her just say yes and shake your head. She is not back so she must have gotten in. But I am so glad that things are going well. Love that for you, do your thing girl and take care of monkey boy.

Angela, I didn't know US unis had dress codes, but that probably isn't a bad thing. We have school uniforms for everyone here so kids are used to conforming like that so for them to get this in Uni is good to get them used to conforming before they start looking for work and really getting hit hard.

Roo-that was strange in that did not know that there was one but I am glad. I think that is the reason why.

Maybe it is an unwritten code - sometimes it comes down to respect more than anything.

Yeah, she said the lady was like you have to go home, you are not dressed right and no exception. I am glad in that I think that it shows maturity.

I'm also thinking it might be a good thing for dd when you expressed concern after that killing about her mode of dress.

It was but I took her shopping to get her some pants and a dress shirt. Told her that she can go to goodwill to get her some more set for school. I am just glad Roo that she is really growing up. She got up this morning got dress and went to school with no problems.

Yes, every little pebble is a milestone at this age. It is very exhausting too when you just can't let up for a minute.

Especially when it took us a long time to get here, not going to let an outfit stop her now. Especially if I can spend all that money updating a house.

We had a rough patch a while back and I am just glad that things are good now. I told her that she can stay here but only if school is included.

Good for you, it is hard to dig in like that when they can so easily walk away and you are left wondering. I had a lot of problems with my eldest like that, she still hates me but at least she did survive and a hasn't come out too bad at the end.
