Mother Nature tricked us last week. After many days of near zero overnight temperatures and not much warmer during the day, we had temperatures close to 60F! I knew it was too good to be true as here in Ohio we usually get slammed until March. Yesterday afternoon as I was getting ready to leave for work, the skies opened up and snow, snow, and more snow began falling. It fell so quick that rush hour was a disaster. Luckily I work close to home, but I ran into a few snags as cars were blocking both sides of the road I was trying to go down as they were sliding up a hill. I love my Jeep! I had no problems, even going down our long drive that hadn't been plowed.
I snapped this picture out my kitchen window about 5p.m. It's not a great view (I get to look at the garage out my kitchen window, but I'm happy to have that window and the beautiful light it gives), but the snow looked beautiful hanging on the overgrown lilac bush.
You can see my little terrarium hanging out there. It was loving the sun, but now that it's cold again I think I need to move it to a warmer area in the house.
You can't see in the pic, but our kitchen walls are bright yellow. I always thought I would like a yellow kitchen, but not this yellow. It's too bright and it makes the cabinets look cold and cheap. They are a busy wood grain that I don't like. We debated painting the cabinets (we've seen some awesome black cabinets on another blog), but decided painting the walls is probably something we should tackle first. Painting the cabinets seemed so final, but the wall color can always be changed if it doesn't work out.
I went to Home Depot on Saturday and grabbed three sample pots of Behr paint. Love those! I grabbed a medium brown to paint the walls behind the cabinets (trying to make the cabinets disappear was my idea) and a dark brown to paint the trim as the white trim just wasn't doing it for me. The other walls in the kitchen will be painted a soft light brown to warm up the space...hopefully. Keep your fingers crossed for me! lol!
