Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Closet Color

This morning it was 60 degrees and cloudy.
Thought maybe it would rain but it never did.
With lots of rain and sun everything looks so pretty and green now.

Down by the Drane house I noticed a family of geese going to the pond.
Had my usual 6 mile walk all around town.
As I passed by the post office one of the workers was just getting
to work and said he hoped I made it home before it rained.

The usual people gave a wave and a toot as I walked and good smells
were coming out of the bakery again.
Wednesday is donut day.
 Always nice getting out the first thing in the morning and walking.
🐞     🐞     🐞
I took down all the plates in the kitchen I had above the kitchen
cabinets and washed them.
Cleaned off my desk
and packed up some things in my office.
Figured I'd better start thinking of getting this
house ready to sell.  

Started meatballs in the slow cooker this morning for supper.
Having an early supper at 4:30 because I have to leave at
4:50 to walk over to the library.
It's coloring day.  
Ken will pick me up and we'll go to church and afterward
we have to stop in Walmart and pick up a few things.
Hope you have all had a good day and have
a good evening.
Life is Good
Count your blessings

Oh, one thing before I go.
Ronnie our builder thinks it is odd that we have all our
closets in the new house painted white.
My closets have always been white, makes it nice and bright.
Just curious,
what color are your closets painted?

The green grass is. a beautiful sight in spring. My closets are white.

Love the duck family! :)

My closets are white. Though, I am suddenly thinking they should be bright colors or stripes or paisley. What color did Ronnie suggest?

My closet is the same color as the bedroom walls, but it has lots of built in shelves and cabinets and they are all painted the same off white as the trim throughout the house. The builder's designer wife chose the colors. I would have painted all the trim and cabinets a white. I love Home Depot's Behr Paint's 'Swiss Coffee' for a white trim paint. It's a white with a nod towards a brown undertone (not yellow or blue undertones like others) which makes it look great with lots of colors.

My current house has all cedar closets, but in past houses the closets have always been white and I didn't think anything of it. Never thought of painting a closet any other color.

Vee said...

All white except the red one and I hate that one! 🙂 How do you not stop in the bakery on doughnut day? I’d never be able to steer clear.

...you sure are a busy lady!

The bedroom is "desert sand" with white trim and the closet is the same.

It must be exciting to start packing up some of your things in preparation for the move.

I always have a white closet too! Its just gives it that linen freshness look. I like carpet in my closets too.

Hello, pretty images from your walk. I like the goose family. I like my closets white too. We are getting a lot of rain, all week. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Debby Ray said...

Everything is so green and beautiful...and that goose family is so precious! My closets are white...because I have never painted them since we've been in the house...they are not walk-ins and would be quite hard to paint. They are just closets, after all!

Pom Pom said...

White! You're right! It's bright!
Have fun coloring.

Actually when we moved into this house the closets as well as everything else needed a fresh coat of paint. By the time I painted the living room, kitchen and mud room five times each (two primer and three paint, just to cover the dark paneling) our budget was running short, so I used my leftover paint in the closets . . . Steve's closet is blue and yellow and mine is pink :) Otherwise I probably would have picked white also. Closets get plenty of color from all the things stored in them and every color goes well with white.
Stay happy!
Connie :)

All our closets are white. :) I would love to see baby geese like those.
