I've been inspried by DonnaLynn over at Blushing Rose Antiques. She spent the weekend painting everything in sight -- and boy is she good at it. I aspire to have a yard like hers (weed free with lots of flowers) and a gorgeous house.

To that end, we did some major weeding yesterday, and hung the plants we bought over the weekend. This is the first time we've had hanging plants. I don't even know what they are, but they are pretty. We also planted tomatoes and the first of our annuals (really late this year).

I'm getting psyched to spend the weekend painting. I've got my corner cabinet (mentioned yesterday), a small hanging shelf (which is currently blue and will soon be Ivory Silk), and we're going to paint the cottage bathroom. It's currently got paneling halfway up the wall, and then embossed (white) wallpaper. We're going to paint it "asparagus" green. If we hate it, we'll replace the paneling with beadboard. (Yeah! That's what I really want.)

Paint_3 I also want to seal our home deck. It's been years since I did it, and it really is in need. First I have to scrub off the green, which isn't really mold...is it? Anyway, it needs to be cleaned.

In the meantime, I need to do my freelance job. Where will these hours come from?
