To do lists...where do I begin?

This week has been a week of projects. It started Sunday when Mr. Miller decided he was going to add not only 1 but 2 more garden beds to the "Inaugural Garden". (Yes, he won that discussion!) We have had our 1st harvest of cilantro for my salsa. The Hen's will get the first tasting tonight at Bunco. Did I forget to mention I am entertaining this week also? Well since he and Cameron were going to garden I decided I needed something to do also. I laid Henry down for his afternoon siesta and decided I was going to paint. I had some blue paint left from the last house and decided there was just enough for the main bath. It is one of my favorite shades, it so reminds me of the little blue boxes from Tiffany's, yes I know I am on a budget these days but a girl can dream. So why not paint your bathroom that color? Mr. Miller and I bought a new shower curtain and rug for the combined Mother's and Father's day gifts, I know romantic but practical and that is what we are these days.

The picture does not do the color justice. It is called "under the sea blue", I just love it.

I next decided on Monday I would take on painting the kitchen. We have only had the paint since May of 2008. We bought it at the Sherwin Williams Memorial Day paint sale. Great deals on Harmony paint, a no VOC paint, which I strongly suggest I was able to paint in the house with the kids and not "fume" us out. It seems to roll a little thinner but covers nicely. This project was a little more detailed and so I had to enlist some help from Mr. Miller.

He was daring enough to climb on top of fridge and counter tops to reach above the cabinets. He hates heights so I was proud of him. This color just warmed my kitchen up. It is so cozy in there now.
Yesterday I made a table runner for the dining room and made table cloths for the card tables tonight. I found this great fabric at Joann's called "zest". I love the color, it so reminds me of Summer.

I used my 50% off coupon and was able to make 2 table cloths and 2 table runners for $18. It is just enough to brighten the house. Needless to say I was a busy girl this week but enjoyed every minute of it. Time to go so I can prepare food for tonight.
