One of the things that is certain is change! It comes whether you want it, or if you are expecting it or not, and it comes even if it’s not marked in red on the calendar!
The change of seasons have arrived here in the Midwest! Fall is lovely. The trees, the leaves bring a riot of color to the eyes. But it also signals that cooler weather coming and winter is in site. THAT part I do not like! I have lived my whole life in winter states that bring snow and cold. I like it less and less each winter. But, for now, I will enjoy the fall colors. In fact, today bringing out my bins of harvest/fall decorations to begin decorating with my fall colors and items.
Another change. One day Wayne’s health seemed great. Next day after meeting with ENT on hearing loss, then a MRI/brain scan is scheduled, scans came back and showed a large Erachnoid cyst in his brain. We then met with a neurosurgeon, now Wayne has been referred to an Epilepsy Team of neurologists and an Otologist (neurologist with specialty of the ear and brain). We wait for the next steps, diagnosis.
Third in our changes…this also was not on the calendar. A few weeks ago, while I’m in the process of painting our interior trim (another story) I came up with the idea to update the front of the house and front door. As I perused blogs, I found colors I wanted. We have a beige sided house with burgundy shutters…for 20 years. So yesterday! HA! After getting a couple of sample colors, trying to find the right color for the shutters. I found Glidden “Fauna Brown” which I had Home Depot color match to Behr paint. Then I chose for the front door, also our front wooden number address sign and side garage entry door, a wonderful color called ” Whale Gray” which actually has a blue in it that just makes the doors pop! All blends beautifully. The doors and the sign are painted and done. The shutters are also finished and were put up today. We LOVE it! As a side note. Behr exterior paint is the best. I love using it. Goes on smooth, levels wonderfully, covers great!
