Coloring Completed

Last week Monday, I was off from school. I started painting my bedroom, but I ran out of time. Yesterday I finished it! Woo hoo! I completed something!

The old color was a purplish brown. The new color is a bluish/grayish white. It’s called “Ice Sculpture”. Here are some before and after pictures. The “after” looks shiny, because it wasn’t dry yet, but I wanted to post pictures from daytime. The finish on the new paint is matte.

Maybe tomorrow I can put the room back in order. If I get my grading done in a timely manner.

    Wow! That is a very dramatic change – from darker to bright and light! I chuckle at how you and Beth are on the opposite ends of the color spectrum. She’d go back to the ‘before’ in a heartbeat, but this color totally suits you. Congratulations on getting it done! Can’t wait to see the final scene. (This really is like Trading Spaces….)

Couch Cat

After I get up from sitting on the couch, Bruno likes to sit in the spot where I was, because it’s warm. Last night he struck a pose:

And then he struck another one:


Beautiful Bookshelf

We had a “step up” night last night at school. It went well. I made a slide show to talk a little.

While I was straightening up my classroom, I saw the bookshelf in the back of the room, and remembered that I hadn’t posted about it.

A while back, it was in disarray, and I asked some students to organize it any way they like, and one of them decided to do it by color.

Ha! I love it! It’s so pretty!

Birthday Boy

I can’t believe I forgot to mention it yesterday – it was Bruno’s birthday! He’s one year old! Yay! Happy Birthday, Bruno!

When I got home from church last night, I gave Bruno a birthday treat.

He almost couldn’t wait for me to finish singing “Happy Birthday”.

Advent and Avoiding Addiction

Er…. Lent. It’s Lent.

When I went to Solvang back in January, I ended up buying a book of Hans Christian Andersen stories.

In a related story, I’m having my Religion Class students all do something for Lent. I always do something too. My something this year is to not look at my phone when I go to bed. Instead, I’ve been reading from my Hans Christian Andersen book. It’s great. I love the language it uses.

In a related story, I found out that there is a whole series of fairy tale and folk tale books published by the same publishing company. They even have similar covers. I have a new thing to buy! Yay! On Monday I got a gift certificate for doing a survey, and I knew exactly what I would use it on: a new story book! Woo hoo!

This one just so happened to also be red. That’s just a coincidence. They come in lots of colors. I want to buy them ALL!!!
