The blue bonnets are in full bloom. We saw the most amazing sunset today passing by an enormous cross with the beautiful pastel colors in the sky. As we were speeding down the road I couldn’t capture just how gorgeous it really was.
My husband stopped on the side of the road today between Houston and Austin as did about a million other people to take pictures in the wild flowers. This is one thing I love about Texas. The drive between Austin and Houston was mesmerizing looking at the wild flowers on a clear blue sky day with white puffy clouds. I took a picture of Luna in the blue bonnets, she kept trying to eat them.
I am so blessed to be with my family this Easter. We had a nice lunch together to include pot roast, carrots, mashed potatoes, salad and an Easter cake for desert. This lunch came out nice and definitely did not go as planned. I threw out the first batch of frosting and the roast took way too long to cook…(3 hours late). Still the end result was excellent.
This time next year, hopefully we will be in the new house. Closing is now a couple of weeks away. Yesterday I met with the design consultant. My husband isn’t visualizing her suggestions, but I am in love with them! We picked out a sectional and I went to the house to tape off the measurements. I think it will fit fine. There is an art at getting the right configuration of furniture in a room.
We addressed the formal dining room again. It helps to visit the space. The chandelier has been moved so that it isn’t centered in the room. In doing so we are going to need a smaller round table to get the chandelier in the center and have enough space between the chairs and the windows. The 72 inch table would have been great for 8 people, that don’t live here! The 60 inch table will fit perfectly and with 5 people, it fits our lifestyle. I can use this room for just us and add a rectangular temporary table if we do a formal gathering. I love this idea! What my husband isn’t thinking is that whenever we had company over at our old house, we would try to squeeze as many people as we could around our 4 seat breakfast table. Without a breakfast room, we are going to be using this formal dining room often! I’m so happy to not waste this space. This room is something I’m really looking forward to living in with family.
