What to Eat?

My stomach is growling but I can not decide what to eat. I think my mind is on Spring Break with the boys. I normally don’t do so bad with eating when school is going on. I guess I need that routine as do they. I have plenty to fix just nothing sounds good. Then, I do the bad thing and go get something. Bad me. Maybe the problem is I don’t want to cook. I guess I am on Spring Break as well. 🙂

I started out cooking at the beginning of the week. I even made the main meal at lunch time so the evenings were free to munch on what was in the cupboard or fridge. Then Wednesday hit, I got lazy, didn’t cook. Now, I’m on the end of Spring Beak and I’m still not wanting to cook. At least we chose mostly chicken and not so much hamburgers for eating out. Sigh.

I bet it also has to do with me sleeping more since I don’t have to get up. Yikes! What am I going to do when they fly the nest? Oh, ya, back to work because there won’t be any obstacles for jobs. 🙂

Now, that I posted those pictures of past dishes I made, I am really hungry. I don’t have any of that to make. I did get pork chops yesterday to make today, but not feeling it.

I love to watch the Food channel, was hoping Chopped was on to inspire me, but it is the Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives which makes me want to go get something. LOL

Do you guys eat out a lot?

I try to keep it to once a week but I have really blown that one this week.

Have a great weekend!

Paint Away

 

I have lived in several homes that were all white or all tan, and they were ok, but I prefer color. My youngest son thinks my decorating style is strange. Well, kiddo I like it strange. Color is cheerful. 🙂

Here are a few of the many paint samples I have chosen over the last couple decades. I like color.  I have definitely painted my share of walls. I have more to paint but keep stalling. I am getting tired of painting walls. 🙂

Pineapple = Dining Room(yellow)
Leaping Water = bathroom trim (light sea green?)
Gargoyle = outside projects (grey)
Chicago Sky = basement main room(blue)
Antarctic Ice = laundry room and guest room (light tan/white)
Edge of Night = my creative cave top half of walls (light grey)
Pledge of Allegiance = my creative cave bottom half of walls (medium purple)
Aztec Rouge = kitchen at our Puzzle House in my hometown (red-brown)
Flirtation = kitchen at our Puzzle House in my hometown (blue)

Here are a few examples.

I think the most difficult color to paint is red! We painted our hallway a deep red with white trim at our other house and it looks elegant but boy the paint can show brush strokes and such. I think I will stick to accents of red. 🙂

I love the names they give paint. While I look for the color I want, the name tends to pull me to the shade of color. Do you know the names of your walls?
