Renovations that take too Long: Bedroom before and after

The back bedroom started as the previous owners  closet.  One of the windows was covered up and there were boards nailed to the wall to hang extra clothing, the hard wood floors were covered up by carpet.

I had to paint over lots of purple, and rip out carpet.  The process has been long given the fact that I don't have much "spare-time" What ever that is.

This is what the floor looked like after I pulled up the carpet.  It will need to be sanded and re-finished, but that will have to be a project for another time. For now I'll enjoy it's character.

I'll need to put up some art and do things to make it cozier, but here is what I'm not left with.

Delicious recipe from pintrest

I have an unhealthy addiction with Pintrest.  I love that silly little website. I find the best things on it.  Like this Oatmeal Berry recipe.  I had to try to make it myself.

I'm not a big fan of trying to make things super fat-free so where she uses sugar-free maple syrup I just used regular maple syrup.  Where she uses Skim milk I used whole milk.  I also added more berries, and I wish I would have used 3 bananas instead of 2.  Oh and I love walnuts and 1/4th cup was just not enough for me.  I only had a 3 quart baking dish and it would have been nice if I had the 2 quart. Theoretically I should have had a serving for breakfast each day this week but I've been eating it as desert after dinner too so I ran out this morning... .

Yeah it was that good.

Here are some pics from my process...

A Piece of Poetry: Blue Ladies

Blue Ladies: By Alisha M. Wielfaert

Light blue ladies invade the orange evening. They stopped into the polka-dot bar for a sliver of blues. It didn't affect their mood. They remained bright blue. This didn't mean they were sad. They are painted too brightly to be sad.

Will you come out of your room and play with the blue ladies? They want to know. They want you to walk on water. They want you to play. Stop being sad they say. Enter our orange evening.

Be here without an edge, with out a steady stream of thoughts. Get outside of your ego. Be plain. Be you. Be. Be a blue lady invading the orange evening of your mind.
