Contractor running plumbing in bathroom today.  I'm having a rough time choosing LVP flooring.  There's a large curve in floor....it won't be easy to finish that edge.

There's popping in bedroom hall subfloor...sounds oddly like footsteps on roof.  Yikes. Not sure when that started.

Shower tile is white marble looking porcelain 4x12 subway tiles.  Shower flooring is gray and white marble pattern, very nice.

I really like the gray & white bathroom color scheme. (Mine has 3 shades of wood also). Lets you change up the feeling in the room with curtains, rugs, art & towels. Easily and economically. And it's soothing & spa-like without committing to this year's shade of turquoise or coral.... which will be old in a few years.

If it's too hot and I'm too lazy today, I might touch up paint on doors and finally paint that god-forsaken toe kick situation in the kitchen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!   :Big wide eyes of absurdity:

I understand the toe kick situation, Amber.  When I'm relaxed I SEE details....splashes on cupboard doors, toe kicks, scuffs on stair risers....walls, trim.  That you notice these things is a positive, ime.

I picked up meh LVP flooring for LR and bedroom/bath renovation.  Have to drive it 2 hours from Atlanta in 5:00 traffic after dd18 appt with nutrition gal. I could never live here again, but I'm not sure where I really do want to live.

Lighting for bath renovation came from a 25.00 box of shiny chrome fixtures carelessly thrown together and purchased from the ReStore.

Two 2 light wall scones and 3 24" Ralph Lauren Picture lights dropped in the garage during the winter storm I had to drive through.  I never looked at the lights till yesterday.

They're beautiful, have never been installed and the picture lights retail for $1,099.00 each.  I assume they came from whatever lighting store dumped samples going on the Restore as I picked up the kitchen cabinets.  I took many lights, but this mangled up box was the buy of the day.

Last night I was on the porch watching the sky crackling and lit up almost constantly with thunder and lightening.  DD18 doesn't like storms, so huddled under a blanket inside.  When the actual atom finally reached us, a gentle rain hit first, then the wind then big rain turning into hail....I expected frogs to fall next.  It was really strange.

DD20 called and asked us to come home.  She said she's "tired of eating Ramen."  I hope this means she wants to eat better.  I think it does, bc normally she won't eat anything I cook...it looks like ODD around food with me.

I'm gonna drop expectation and let DD20 lead.  I know she and the pug miss us.
