Awww, why feeling blue? Beautiful flowers though. My b'day ones. And the color blue I was so fond. My dad even tried to match paint to that color when I was about 9? But after I got my bedroom all painted, it was waaaaaaaaaay tooooooooo bluuuuuuuuuuue. Especially when my mom wouldn't let me repaint in a softer hue, or even 1-2 walls. Oh well, after my eyes stopped crossing, I learned to live with the intense. Much prettier on the flowers.
I'm trying to imagine a whole room in that colour Our kitchen wallpaper had blue flowers for 15 years - I hated it as too much blue is really disturbing, later we were told that blue isn't a kitchen colour at all. My Mom had loved the little blue flowers so much when she bought the wallpaper (which was quite expensive that's why it had to stay so long), but when it was all over the kitchen she was like
I have always loved May, but since my Dad's gone I can't shake the blue feeling. I'll never stop missing him.
And then the second house ex/I purchased was a brand new tract home, and I got to pick out the entire color scheme for the whole thing; i.e., appliance colors, counter and floor colors, carpets, and even wallpaper. It was during my burnt sienna or burnt orange or brown/orange era... and though I matched it up lovely and it was cheerful, there was just TOO MUCH orange and burnt-something or other EVERYWHERE. But very cheerful. And I did like it. But looking back on photos, it wouldn't be my choices today. I seem to gravitate from one color set to another, every 5-10 years. I was stuck in greens and purples since the 90s, but I seem to be going back to blues and yellows.
Did you lose your father in May? Mine died in May. 1987. Me, too -- I'll never stop missing mine.
My bedroom is terracotta - it turned out pretty orange though, but it goes well with the white furniture. Still, it isn't a good colour for a bedroom. I so did not want to have wallpaper, I wanted to have everything painted instead. But now, after five years, I could use a change
Today is my Dad's birthday. Two days before mine. He died in July 1985.
Yes, I notice your b'day is coming up in two days. I hope I don't forget closer to the day! It's so easy to do, and then I feel bad. Especially for friends such as yourself who are so good about gifting and trying to remember others. I'm terrible at dates. It can stare me in the face every day, and still I'll be like "doh" when the important day arrives. I didn't used to be like this. I even forget my own. Are you making plans for what you and family will be doing?
Oh, it wasn't meant that way! I'm never making a thing of my b'day. I'll be alone with my son tomorrow. He just started his swim class today, and we'll have another class tomorrow (it will be every Saturday and Sunday for the next four or five weeks). See, I'll be busy tomorrow morning. But I'll go out for lunch with him and try to have a quiet and lovely day. I won't be partying.
Wie immer ... ich habe keine Vergissmeinnichtse, deshalb habe ich bei schlechtem Licht am Sonntag einen Blumentopf neben der Eisdiele fotografiert. Blau ist schon schön, aber ich bin grad ein bissel depri unterwegs.
Im Blumentopf fotografiert...und unsereiner presst sich platt auf den Boden, um ein halbwegs gutes Bild von diesen Winzlingen hinzubekommen... Depri? Hallo!!! Es ist Frühling!!! Die Tage werden länger, sind heller, jede Menge buntes Zeug da draussen, alles grün!!! Spätestens jetzt sollte Deine Stimmung ins Positive steigen!!!!
