I am inside working on painting baseboard heat units...
...when it looks like this outside my windows.
This is "capris weather." Temps are getting into the 60s...inconceivable for May 1st!
Those house projects keep getting in the way. My mudroom cupboards were installed the last day I was home in November. I finally got around to cleaning all the sawdust from installation and putting everything away. Then I had to clean the light fixtures that were full of bugs. I learned, via the internet, how to very easily get the plastic cloud covers off my lights. From the center of the light, grab the fixture on each side and press in the center with your thumbs and the whole plastic piece flattens out like magic and comes right off.
Notice there is a quilt that has also been hung on the right wall of the mudroom. It's more than just decorative...
It is inconceivable that our builder in 2012 couldn't find a better way or place to put our fuse boxes and internet/phone/cable lines...but he didn't.
Here's another angle of the beautiful quilt that hides a secret...kind of like a safe hidden behind a painting.
The weather forecast says we have five days of these clear blue skies and temps in the 60s. At least the next project can be moved outside for me to work on, sanding and sealing this simple headboard with some danish oil.
I did hang another quilt while I had my drill out for the mudroom. (Yes, I have my own tools that I store in the laundry room...they are just right for a lady's smaller hands...and not grimy from being used and stored in a garage.) My sewing room now has a little quilt decoration.
I did do a little bit of hand quilting last night. My fingers got tired so I didn't get very far.
I was just waiting for May 1st to make my first plant purchase of the season...six gorgeous bleeding hearts...love the chartreuse leaf color of this new-to me variety.
Two each will go in these huge planters...just as soon as I get the slate tile added to the fronts. (Inconceivable...another house project!)
I have no idea what other plants I'm adding to these planters...they are huge and I am going to try some shrubbery and see if they survive the winter in them.
