Scattergories

by Cait

Continuing with the posts in which I am all over the place…

So, this weekend, rather than working on the bathroom, or items for the Etsy store like we should have been (though that might come later today), I decided to work on the floor plan for the blog and watch Parenthood reruns. It’s not completely to scale (because I kind of don’t care, one day I may actually measure the rooms & provide room sizes), but it looks much better than how it was there before.

I may or may not have spent way too long sketching it, scanning it into Photoshop and coloring it. And then after all that, staring at the blank white spaces made me want to paint. A lot. Which won’t be happening anytime soon of course, but I then took the liberty to add the colors that I’ve been thinking about anyhow. Maybe one day some variety of the below graphic will be on the floor plan page instead.

And in addition to wanting to repaint our entire house, I may or may not have decided that I want our backyard to look like Zeek & Camille’s in Parenthood (which any of you who follow us on Facebook may have seen).

I love all the ferns, and the stone walls, and everythingWe tried the $11 approach of stringing up the mini lights that we used on the house for Christmas last year with some hardware, but they have a white string/wire and I’m neurotic. So we decided we’re going to save up for commercial patio lights that 1) have a black string/wire, 2) we can leave up year-round, and 3) come in really long lengths. And then we cancelled Robert’s party and went for frozen yogurt.

Oh and also, I moved the tables around while Robert was at work today. I think that the rectangular table fits better in the space, but that is another post in itself.

See? Told you I was scattered.
