Yesterday my cousin and her husband came for a visit. It was so sunny and beautiful, we decided to drive up the mountain and see what we could see. I was suggesting places to stop for lunch when Carolyn says, "I have a picnic". Well, of course she has a picnic. She is never unprepared.
Silver Lake is a beautiful County Park, and we walked across the lake on the little foot bridges. The surface of the lake was frozen, making for some very interesting textures. The bald eagles we perched in the trees above. We found a picnic table nestled in a warm, sunny spot, and enjoyed our lunch and the surroundings until the sun went behind a cloud. Wow, this difference in two degrees.
And here is my living room, ready for paint, showing the new 8 foot window that used to be about 2.5'.
And here is the finished product:
I am so happy with my new room. My friend, Jody, helped me with the painting. She came over Monday morning and we were done by Wednesday.
I started this post on Thursday, I think, so it's a bit out of whack, but the details are all there.
I'm now off to do some retail therapy.
