elisha has discovered the beauty of a prize. put your head under during swim class? popsicle. muster all your strength to try the potty? popsicle.
and asher is just plain in love with them.
and for those of you curious, here is one of the “finished” rooms in the house. please note the fireplace that is reminiscent of castle grayskull. not really sure what the owner was going for there, but i’m sure we’ll be thanking him on those cold winter nights. that or the grayskull-ness will just be emphasized with the flames burning bright and high and i’ll be creeped out even more. and even though it is a bit small for you to see, our painting by a friend in miami helps temper the oddness.
someday soon a rug or two will find its way in here. and perhaps some curtains. wouldn’t you know that our rug bought less than a year ago was too big for this room. sad.
i’m not sure the last time that i lived in a house with white walls, but i’m kind of enjoying it. that or just the thought of painting and all that goes with it exhausts me and makes me think white is beautiful.
