Monday April 12, 2010-Progressing Slowly

Not much to say the last few days.

On Saturday we bought a used hedge trimmer for $25. Other than that, it was slow until today when I bought a set of four Panasonic phones. They were on sale at The Source (Radio Shack).

We've been having some chilly nights around 0C (32F) but the days are warming up quite nicely. I've been going for my morning walks as usual.

Yesterday I went to Home Depot and picked out the paint colours for the bedroom. We're going with a terracota colour on the bed wall and a light taupe on the other walls with high gloss
white trim and doors. At least that's the plan as of now. The 'bed in a bag' that I ordered from the Sears catalogue won't arrive until after our closing date so I had to wing it for the bedroom colour.

I won't know till we get in the house whether anything else needs to be painted right away or not. It didn't look too bad but you never know what lurks behind someone's furniture1

I'm trying to find a futon for us to sleep on until the furniture arrives the Thursday after our closing. After, we'll use it in the basement. I didn't realize that futons had increased in price so much since we purchased the one we had in the house probably 15 years ago or so. So I've been looking at used ones online but it's something you have to be careful buying used. Luckily the covers do come off for washing.

Gordon is having fun with his new ipod and in fact, wrote a blog about it. To read it click here.

That's about the extent of the last three days. Stay tuned.....

  1. This might be a dumb question, but why do you need four phones?
