Tomorrow, my Mom is coming down and is going to keep me company while I pressure wash our house. Now that some of the leaves have fallen off our enormous Sycamore tree out front you wouldn't believe it but our lovely blush colored home is now mossy green. lol It looks awful! An affliction of the humidity here in Florida.
Friday, my hubby is going to take the last week of his vacation time off this year. Whoo hoo! I am so excited to be able to spend time with him. We are going to paint the outside of our home. Right now, the house is a pretty blush color. It looks nice for Florida and is ever so soft that you barely notice the hue, so this time I would like to either match it or add a touch just a touch of peach. A bit more daring, but not enough that the neighbors will wince. he he! I love peach or blush!
We are looking forward to having dinner with my hubby's and my folks. Seems they have some out of town relatives visiting. So it will be great fun to get together and catch up with everybody!
Here's a turkey tip I caught on Martha Stewart this morning. Take a piece of cheese cloth and soak it in 1 C of white wine and a stick of butter melted. Drape the cloth over the turkey. Roast and baste the turkey through the cheese cloth, only removing it just prior to the final half hour. It adds flavor and the Turkey is tender, dark and delicious.
So it's just the two of us gearing up to doing a little painting and hoping you are all getting some of those nagging little chores out of the way so you can experience all the joy that comes along with getting together for the holidays.
