Busy Bee...

Have been busy today, but am now a wee bit sore.
...have been all day yesterday painting cabinet door fronts and baseboard and door trim in my hall bathroom... then today I managed to get half of the bathroom walls cut in and painted.

And ugggh..I am sore a bit.

As most of the painting today was around a large,large mirror up above the vanity and the only way I could really reach where I needed to properly... was to be on my knees. Ouch! a nice warm soak in the tub to soothe my achey muscles is in order.
The rest of the bathroom painting will go much easier though.

I went from a pale buttery yellow in the room to a nice seaside pastel blue a light sky blue.

I got a nice white lace look shower curtain to go in the room and a dark navy blue towel to hang over the towel bar. I like hanging a nice white doily over the towel to make it look feminine.

I'll probably hang some pretty embroidered tea towels edged with a dark blue rickrack trim on the two little side guest towel bars by the mirror.

Anyhow...whew..I'm tired now.
But it is a good tired...little by little things will get in shape around here.
Was able to gather a colander full of green beans from the garden yesterday, and I put them in the crockpot with some red potatoes and sausage last night, and wow! did they taste wonderful. Nothing like a "fresh from the garden" taste. Absolutely yummy!

I hope that before the plants are done, that they'll give us at least another colander full of beans, as they were so yummy. Growing them will be a "must have" in the garden every year.They are a stringless bush bean variety.
The last couple of days there have been 2 tiny baby blue jays in the yard. I spotted them in the wax myrtles last night..but by the time I had camera in hand, I found only one roosting in the tree, the other must have been hiding pretty good, because I could not see it.
But did manage to capture the one on camera, and watch it for a while as it started to doze off. It can not fly as of yet,but hops from limb to limb and waits for the parent birds to bring it food.
Isn't it just darling?
I thought you'd enjoy seeing a few photos of it though.
Well.this gal is off to go soak these weary bones in some epsom salts and call it an evening.
Thanks for joining me in "blogland".
Enjoy the photos.

Ok, I'm going to let you slide not moving closer to me since your going back to where your family NO, I'm glad that you are moving closer to them. I really like the colors that you picked out to paint. See, if you were closer to me you could help me repaint my house, I'm not allowed to pick up a paintbrush Hope you and yours have a blessed day

Isn't it amazing the muscles that we discover when we tackle a job like painting? Take a warm bath and soak all those joints.

Look at those tiny blue jays -- I don't think I've ever seen the babies before! And your beans look great! I've never quite known how to grow beans. I need lessons! You sure have been productive! My knees and back ache in empathy!
