Too Sick To Do Anything!

Boy, I haven't been this sick in a long time....the kind of sick where you just feel like a blob and can't move because all of your bones in your body ache, ache, ache. Today I had plans on painting the upstairs bathroom (since the tile guys finished with their handiwork there) - not happening. Dishes in the sink - they will stay there till one of my daughters does them. Living room clean-up - I guess I will just trip over whatever is on the floor because I can't seem to move out of my recliner. I have my little Lola keeping me company all day.....such a cutie!

While I was feeling better earlier this week I was able to do some sewing. In our bedroom we have these cream cotton blinds that don't keep a lot of light out of the room. There is a street light right outside of our window that glares through the thin blind material and it is impossible to fall asleep at night. Ta Da! I covered them with a deep red floral fabric that now blacks out that annoying street light. It works so well that the other night when I was coming up the stairs I couldn't even see our bedroom from across the hall. 

And, as soon as I am feeling better this bathroom will have a new coat of paint on it and the blinds in here will also be covered in some pretty floral fabric with some fancy trim on the bottom edge. You can see from the picture below where I had to paint the wall behind the toilet before it was installed again.

And these holes in the floor.......

Are where this tub needs to be reconnected - I'm thinking of painting it gloss black before reinstalling it. What do you think?

And lastly, our baby girl turned 17 yesterday - time sure does fly by. I remember celebrating her first birthday just a few years ago! What a cutie!

You poor thing! Hope you feel better soon...but meanwhile, what a cutie to cozy up with! Love the "fix" for your bedroom window. Your room looks so cozy! Happy #17 to your daughter. It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was that age and yet here I am, double that.

Get well!
