Friday night, and a sneak preview, and a visit from an old friend

It's been a long hard week for me, both girls have gone home for the week-end, I love them both dearly and will be glad when I can spend more time doing things with them...maybe next week I'll have the bath done and can take them to lunch one day. Marissa and I took Morgan to her softball game last night, while her Mom took Redman to his game, their Daddy had to work. We really enjoyed the game Mo-Mo's team won, first game all year...Mo-Mo got up to bat 2 times and hit and got on base both times, she came home the first time and got stranded on base the second time. She's going to be our better ball player.

I have finally got the bathroom painted and just need one more coat on the trim and cabinets. I had the Home Deport match a paint color to a rug that I'd picked out. I had planned on doing it 2 colors, light sage above a chair rail and a darker sage below it...but didn't like that look at all so I painted it all light sage and the trim, shelves and cabinets, linen. I plan on using lament hardwood flooring in there, I can't wait to get everything back in and the medicine cabinets hung up and the flooring down......
This is the rug that I used to choose my colors from, the wall is the color that is in the middle section.
The trim and the cabinets match the off white of the towels
I am so aggravated, I have taken a dozen pictures but can't get a good picture of what the color really looks like...maybe when I get it all put back together and get the natural light, it will look better but in the mean time here is a preview of what it looks like

Tuesday night Rissa and I came home from watching Connor play ball, and when we drove up we had an old friend come by to visit.....well let me rephrase that..DH had an old friend come by to can tolerate this old friend as long as he doesn't touch me...Uhgggg...can you see him,

when we drove up he was up on the side of my carport laying in the cracks of the brick, I called DH to come out and get rid of it, well he talked to it like a long lost friend...conversation went like this..."well, hello old buddy, glad to see you, where you been so long...(no reply) just eased his way down the wall, time I got my camera he was already down the side and on his way to the ground......Rissa thought he was beautiful, I thought he was a SNAKE and yes, he was a King so he was allowed to go on his merry long as he don't get to close to me he will be allowed to hang around....We had one King that came to our pump house for 7 yrs straight. He got so big. When he came out in Spring he always let me know he was there by , hanging down from the rafters over my washing machine when I came in, needless to say DH washed clothes for a feww months till he went back into hiding for the winter. I really do like having a King around the house (outside, I should say) cause he keeps other snakes away.

Went to the Dr Tues and got a good report. Go back next Weds for Mamogram and a change in my Thyroid meds.


  1. Great story about the King - maybe you should have named him "Elvis"? What a way to be greeted - by a snake hanging from the rafters! And people think I am strange for having a pet rat - and you have a resident snake?

  2. I'm simply LOVING the new colors in your bathroom.

  3. I hate snakes. He better not show up at my house.

  4. What is with the snakes and the gators this week? I have to check to see if it is a full moon but honestly I am not sure if that makes all these cratures want to show up. Your comment on my little gator and the ball was very funny. I honestly did not know I could run that fast either:)

  5. Molly, glad to hear the doctor report was good. And glad to see you getting back into the swing of things. Love the bathroom colors. Our center hallway on both levels is about the same color. So restful.

  6. Love the bathroom colors ! I dont like snakes either, but the Kings are good to keep away the bad snakes and mice. Congrats to Mo Mo
    on her win !

  7. glad you got some good news!! and what do you mean you are not as busy as me???? looks like you are holding your own!
    I take thyroid meds for a slow one....makes all the difference when they get the dosage right!
    have a wonderful weekend...the new colors look great!

  8. Your bathroom is going to be gorgeous! I'm glad to hear your health is better & you got a good report from the Dr.

    Yikes on the snake, my hubby likes them too, but I can't stand to be anywhere near them.

    I had to laugh, we have a Marissa & a Morgan too & one of my daughters is named Margery.

  9. Ok, I had some stuff to say about your bathroom but that snake's got me all upset. I don't do snakes, anytime or anywhere!

    Can't wait to see the finished bathroom. Everything looks GREAT so far!

  10. Well, since they are God's creatures I wish snakes no harm...I just am careful to stay away from them. Simple as that! :)
    I am looking forward to seeing your bathroom when it is all ready for viewing. :)
    Thank you for your sweet visit today and your comment.
    It is appreciated!
    ~smiles and hugs~

  11. O.k. for the record I generally hate snakes....although I didn't realize that about the King snake keeping other snakes away...I'd just as soon they'd ALL stay away though!!
    Like your bathroom color...nice and cool....

    So glad you got a good Dr.'s report!
    Softball is in the air everywhere! LOL!!
    Games start this week here.......

    Have a good evening,

  12. You need a rest after all that time with the girls lol. Glad the doc report went well.

    I love that sage color .... have it all over my house too lol (and yes the lighter shade looks greyish in a lot of pics)

    Snakes! SNAKES! King or not ewwwwwww

  13. A KING SNAKE!!! I just hope he doesn't have a queen keeping him company in your yard or a bunch of little royal followers with him!!! YIKES!!!!

    The bathroom looks GREAT!
