this 'n that...

I'm painting my bedroom, a nice rich sort of ginger brown, a variation on the theme of the rest of the downstairs in my house. I like earthtones; I do best with drab colors, as strange as that may sound...nevermind, I'll post pics when I've finished. In the meantime...

I went to a great party this evening; friends had a party to celebrate their empty nest, and that was fun; I had a good time. On the homefront...I'm reading Faulkner, a first for me, and I'm really loving him, the king of long run-on sentences that he is. I'm reading Absalom, Absalom...and it's wonderful.

What else? Xander is here this weekend, and I'd forgotten how wonderful 5 can be. And I've been in regular contact with Mike, at UA, who is a reminder of how terrific 22 can be. More later...

I like the thought of ginger brown. My husband is remodeling the house next door to us to sell. I've been wondering what color to paint the bathroom, with it's terracotta tile, beige shower tiles, and black/tan granite counter. I like the thought of your ginger brown, but don't know if that's a "bathroom color."

I LOVE your decor choices Judi. Earthtones can go with so many accents and it warms a room.

A empty nest party...very cool!

Your babies are growing up.

"ginger brown" sounds like such a nice, and delicious color...

Ginger brown does NOT sound drab lol I like earth tones too. But I like bright stunning colors as well. Throw me in a crayon box and I'm happy lol (Okay not literally, I just need rich colors, nice pastels, some colors horrify me.)
