First off, a big congratulations to my mom who raced the Maui Half Marathon yesterday! My mom is turning into a racing machine. I have no idea where she gets it from… Nicely done mom!!
This weekend was a busy one. Not with training…I had a spare room to tackle! I have disliked this room from the moment I bought my house – baby blue with a blue patchwork feature wall. Me and specialty painting techniques? Not my thing. I never hung pictures on the wall or did anything to it, besides let junk clutter it, because I was always planning to redecorate. Um…three years later and it is about time I did something about it! Here are some before shots: And now after… The blue is gone and replaced with a warm, buttery yellow. I finally have some pictures on the wall!
Plus I had a chance to properly display a few things that are important to me. I have a collection of Harrods Christmas bears (you know, the big department store in London that the Queen likes to shop at?). These guys span from 1990 to 2000 and have been sitting in a box in my garage.After I finished putting everything together last night and admiring my handiwork I went across the hall to my bedroom and my heart fell. Boy that room needs some decluttering and decorating of its own! The good news is I am motivated to get it done. A colour has been picked out (ironically, it is blue) and a date has been set for the painting.
Oh…and I promise to get some workouts in this week. After all, I am racing this weekend!
