Much to the delight of the children we are starting the day out here in Iowa with a two-hour delay because of freezing rain. This means hot, fresh, cinnamon rolls for breakfast and a lazy, relaxing start to the day.
Painting and redecorating the bedroom is on the horizon. I’m thinking a shade of grey might look nice but first we will begin with the primer. It’s my favorite of all paint colors although it’s not really a color at all. What I like about it is that it’s a clean slate, like a blank piece of paper. I believe that in life you have an unlimited amount of primer. If you don’t like what color you have painted your life, you always have the opportunity to change it to whatever color you please. I think people should change the paint in their lives as well as the paint in their rooms. If you paint and don’t like the color you have chosen, just grab a can of primer and start over until you have the perfect hue. Change is good!
My parents once bought a house that was white on the outside and light blue on the inside. And when I say light blue on the inside, I mean that every single solitary room was painted the same color blue. It was hideous. I’m not sure if the former owners found a good sale on blue paint or if they just liked the color blue, but it was a mess that would have made Martha Stewart cry. It was fun watching the transformation though, a little primer here and there and then the colors emerged. Today it’s a beautiful home.
Joke of the Day
Terry was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary and his wife was not happy. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in
the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds and it better be there!”
The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped,
complete with a red bow, in the middle of the
Confused, she put on her robe and ran out to the driveway and brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.
Terry has been missing since Friday!
British Words of the Day – Blow off
In the United States we blow off people, or ignore them when they are annoying. To the Brits this means, “Who farted?” In a sentence it might go
something like this, “This bus smells disgusting, who blew off?"
Have a happy day passengers!
