Fighting the winter blahs

Snow, ground blizzards, dangerous wind chills and white everywhere you look...probably explains why we tend to decorate with rich colors. The most recent room I painted was my bedroom. Rhubarb red wouldn't be everyone's first choice, but I love the feeling of warmth I get from it.






I read a blog today about giving up shampoo. Nope, not for me. Another item on my list of green things I'm not willing to try: toilet cloth, handkerchiefs, and not bathing frequently. I have switched to solid shampoos which eliminates the plastic packaging and does a great job.

On the frugal front, I'm pleased to report that I have not eaten out at all this month and no frivolous spending. I'm afraid the furnace repair bill will offset any saving I manage, but that certainly was necessary.

"I wish...I wish...I wish..."

No magic here. No fairy tale ending.

I love the paint job, it looks great!!! I helped my dad do his dining room that color a few years ago.
