Weekend and Beyond
Our rose bushes are full of buds and the very first blossoms are popping out. I love how the white roses have tinges of pink before they fully bloom. We did some yard work this weekend and are hoping to soon have things in order so we're just doing maintenance work for the rest of the season.
We also painted half of our bedroom Silver Sage but I couldn't get a good photo yet. As usual, it was a lot of work and we renewed our vows to never buy a home with textured walls again. The color, however, is wonderful (thanks to the Godfreys who we stole the paint idea from!) and it needed to be done. Our reward was going to our favorite Thai place and having curry and fried tofu, so good and just one of those hole-in-the-wall gems.
My dissertation proposal defense is officially scheduled for April 28 so the countdown has begun. Good thing there are garden and home improvement projects to distract me when I'm not working.
