Why is it so hard to make simple decisions? Is it because there are too many choices? Or perhaps because we just don't know what we like? I don't know. What I do know is that I spent an hour and a half in a big box store tonight looking at paint swatches. This after having spent several hours on two other occasions. Ugh!

Well, I finally picked a color for the walls (Arabian Sands) and trim (Ultra Pure White) as well as picking a stain for the wood floor (Provencial). I wish I had photos that showed the colors. You'll just have to wait until the work is done! :-)

Tonight is the NBA draft and I'll be watching to see where my favorite college basketball player of all time gets drafted.

My plants on my deck seem to be getting better. Mum was at the house today and watered the potted plants, but not the garden. I'll do that tomorrow.

I do have a few photos of garden progress...

bountiful beans

eggplant blossom with ladybug

can you guess what this is? it's a pumpkin bloom! i can't wait to watch it grow...

well...i'm off to knit on the baby blanket (it is taking forever! - picture tomorrow) and watch the draft...

Yay for the plants!

Can't wait to see pics of your house! I know it'll be awhile yet though. :( I hope it flies by, for your sake.

Looking forward to your house pictures!!! I know the agony of paint color choosing. In my previous life I worked for a paint manufacturer...I was on the board that helped name the colors...that was insanely tedious. So if you wonder where "Arabian Sand" came from....probably took 9 people 3 days to come up with that name. I kid you not.

Anyway, more importantly, I love the garden pictures. Eggplant is one of my favorite foods....and of course I like pumpkins.

Thanks for sharing.
