which color for the family room walls?

We got some color samples the other day.
3 different Paprika, Balmoral Red & Khaki. color names like lipstick names.
Not when we would actually getting to paint the entire walls, but there is some paint there now.

artwork on the walls of the office

Sarah put up a bunch of our concert posters on the walls of the second bedroom or office. We decided this room should be the colorful one in our home. The walls and posters are pretty bright.

New bedroom light

Yeah, I know we said we weren't going to work this weekend, but Gary decided to put in the bedroom light we bought last weekend. Notice the before & after pictures.

When Gary was taking down the old fixture, it had this weird sort of tension mount which seemed to require the glass bowl part to flex to be removed. Glass doesn't seem to like to flex too much, this was discovered when the glass bowl shattered while being removed. A lesson learned: an easy way to remove glass shards from a bedspead? A lint roller. Worked like a dream.

The new light seems to go a little better with the other fixtures in the place. And it isn't shattered into glass pebbles either.

I know many have seen the move in photos, and the painting and all of the activity... but really the big question on the tip of everyone's tongue is "but how are the plants? Have THEY adjusted?" I know we have been pretty human centric in our postings, and should think more of the flora. So here, look, one of our cacti is in bloom!!

No working this weekend!

After a couple weekends of working, we decided we wanted to actually get out and see some new things in L.A.

We got some tickets for a the play 'Boston Marriage' at the Geffen Playhouse.
The Geffen Playhouse is affiliated with UCLA in some way or another. And it is in the Westwood area. Hopefully the play is good, it opened last weekend, and it stars Rebecca Pidgeon, Alicia Silverstone, and Mary Steenburgen. Woohoo, real life movie stars!
