being a procrastinator (with all the excuses in the world)

Last Friday I told you all that I was going to write about how I use color in my home this Friday.

Well, I should be careful what I promise you all.

I’m not writing about that today.

I need to give that topic a little more thought.  The thing is, I rarely think about HOW I use color in my home.  I just use it. Each home we have lived in has been a little different, and I have used color a little differently in each. I need to pull some old photos, take some new photos, find some inspiration photos and maybe break the post down by home. At any rate, to do the topic justice I need to put a bit more thought into it.

I haven’t had time to do that in the last week.

As you all know, my brother-in-law unexpectedly lost his brother last week. That’s thrown me a bit and my posts took a sort of melancholy tune for a few days. I am so sad for his loss. A lot of you have offered support to me, and I appreciate it. However, I am doing fine…I just am sad for my brother-in-law and his family. They will make it through this, and I am looking forward to seeing them all when I am able to visit in March.

Sadly, we experienced another loss in our extended family. My husbands grandmother passed away yesterday. Again, I am sad that we cannot be there for his family. The service is tomorrow and the timeframe and expense to travel across the country just makes it too difficult for us to be there. I hope that they know we are there in spirit and love them all.

That being said, my little family here in Oregon had a great weekend last weekend and we have had a busy week. Shopping, date night, swimming, hiking, going out for burgers, rollerskating, enjoying a snow day, a mom’s night out for me (we went bowling…so fun), and a fun playdate with friends this morning!

I am hoping to put some effort into my post about how I use color in our home so that I can bring it to you next week, but don’t hold me to it. I’ll admit it, sometimes I am a procrastinator…and I can be a bit flakey.

It’s Friday, the sun is shining (although it is brutally cold for the Pacific Northwest), and I am looking forward to the weekend.

What plans do you all have for the weekend?

home is…being a procrastinator (with all the excuses in the world).
