It's a beautiful, sunny day in Spokane today; I hate to be stuck inside. After work, we are getting together with friends to try out a new sport: Snow Croquet. Okay, maybe sport is a strong term. Nevertheless, I'll let you know how it goes : ).
Gordon and I had a very productive weekend and got a lot done around the house. We switched out all our old light bulbs to new, energy-efficient bulbs and instituted a recycling policy. Gordon replaced a couple of our old light fixtures with cute new ones we found at Lowes. And we repainted our bedside tables and my lotion shelf a pretty color of blue called Empire Fleet Blue. Of course, we didn't discover until too late that Seymour (the cat) had inadvertently rubbed against some of the wet paint when we weren't looking, so one side of him had a nice bright blue stripe. Everything around the house he'd laid on and rubbed against also had blue paint on it (our new red comforter, green chair, etc). And I thought cats were supposed to bring your blood pressure down.
