So just what have I been doing you ask??

As I last posted the gypsy camping parade made it's way back to Cape Cod safe and sound and in one piece. All hangovers had passed and the only thing left was the laundry.

I had a huge grand plan of things to do. What did I do- nothing great. I had a birthday party to go to in the middle of the afternoon Saturday which was a nice relaxing party but right in the middle of the day so that cooked Saturday. Sunday we were planning on running the Falmouth Mile but it was pouring and they were still running but the route was puddle after puddle so we nixed that.

On a better note and more important to me is the fact that I totally de-dust bunnied my own room. I moved furniture, I cleaned places that hadn't seen the light of day since we moved in( 3 yrs ago-ICK). Then I got the grand idea to finally paint. We used about 10 gallons and painted the whole upstairs this cheap flat white paint just to get it cleaned up to move in. I had painted the kids room years ago but you know how it is- My room just never got done although every room in my house is some color. I did this while the kids slept so that meant Saturday and Sunday I was up until about 2 am but it is fantastic. I no longer feel like I should be wearing a straight jacket to bed. I still want to paint the trim and ceiling (we are in a cape so the ceiling is 50% of the room) a creamy white called "steamed milk" . This should tone down the last remnants of the bright white and it will be complete. I know this may take 3 more years but hey we have a 30 yr mortgage.

I also decorated for Fall as I like to decorate for the seasons once Summer is over. I dug out all the leaves and fake pumpkins. The real ones will be added after the Pumpkin Day at Bourne Farm in a few weeks.

I finally found my camera(again) so I took some pictures of my work so you don't think I was sleeping all weekend-LOL Right!
