Instead of lounging around watching Netflix as I normally would about this time on a Sunday evening, I am sitting here waiting. Waiting for the clothes to dry, for my fingernails to dry, my toenails to dry and my hair to dry. The only thing that I'm not waiting to dry is that load in the washing machine - but eventually, I'll be waiting for that to dry too. *sigh*
I wish I could say I put off all my chores to do something fun and exciting. No, instead I faffed around on the internet, mainly doing jigsaw puzzles online - which, much to my detriment, I've just learned was a thing. In my defense, these types of puzzles are good for your brain - so technically, it wasn't a COMPLETE waste of time
In other news, yesterday we finally ordered a new front door. I've been putting off that decision because I couldn't figure out what color I wanted to paint it. Initially, I wanted to paint it black to match the shutters. But then it dawned on me, I have been slowly replacing all the door hardware to oil rubbed bronze. Oil rubbed bronze would be lost on a black door. Man-Child also opined that a bit of color would be nice.
Currently, we DO have color - but I hate it.
For some reason, ALL the exterior doors are painted this ugly burgundy color. So I began searching for the perfect color for the front door (all other exterior doors will be painted black). That was the major holdup as I already knew exactly what door I wanted. I was in love with this Craftsman-inspired door.
The problem with finding the right color? Our siding has a green undertone - yuck. I'm not overly fond of green. But I have finally hit upon THE perfect color - this lovely bluish green color.
And there went the dryer alarm...finally, we are getting something done around here.
