Ever heard that saying? When someone trips up walking or has a mis-step? "Just call me 'Grace." For being ever so graceful and all. Yesterday, I'm right in the thick of my remodeling, rolling paint onto the kitchen walls, using my step stool type ladder to reach the top. Step down, missed the last one completely. There goes my body soaring through the air! Not.so.gracefully. My knee met with the floor, my head barely missed the kitchen table and I said a few not so sweet words. Let me just say, it was not a pretty sight.
Today I have a horribly sore shoulder. Ouch! The knee is barely bruised.
Of course, what is a girl to do but call her mother and tell her the story. I should tell you that I dropped in on mom Monday after my bloggers luncheon. (Yes, I need to post those photos, I remember!) She was standing in a chair to reach something on top of her cabinets. I told her that a 73 year old woman should be careful. Well, she got a huge hoot and hollar today about my fall and said, "What am I going to do with you OLD people?" Uh huh, thanks mom. Did I mention my shoulder hurts like I participated in a bad episode of a WWF wrestling match? Not pretend ...the real thing. I'm the one that got tossed out of the ring! More like tossed off the ladder.
Did I mention I must be color blind also? I never end up with the color I envision. EVER.
Here is the reason I am a bloggin' slacker this week. I took this photo last night. The yellow is a TAD more golden, but not much. My vision was more golden. My daughter says she likes it. Of course, it could be the ugly blue wallpaper (not shown) that is still on the bottom half awaiting the bead board; that is causing my delusion with the color. Or it could just be I gone and bumped my head! ;-)
Maybe I should have picked green instead like many of the comments guessed. However, I have green planned for another very special room in the house. My kitchen will be bright and shiny. WAY shiny. I mean the walls. Cause if company showed up right now, I would hide and pretend I wasn't home!
So while I've not been keeping up the blog. I have been working on the house so I can have more posts and photos to show. At a later date. Right now, I hear a long hot soaking bath calling to my aching bones.
