Mercy. Sometimes I wonder if I think in complete concepts. I was in town today and noticed some really pretty towels in vivid seafoam green and coral. I remembered that I recently noticed that my towels in the guest bath were getting rather worn an faded looking. They are in red, blue and yellow, and they all look faded and dull. So I grabbed some new ones, a bath rug and seat cover. Yessir, those are gonna look good! The colors are bright and sparkling and really cheer it up. And then ....
I looked up and realized that my shower curtain is red. Bright red! Gah!! It's a fabulous curtain, and it wasn't cheap. But it is ghastly with the new towels. Guess I'll be going back to town again in the next few days. Before you ask, I did look around and there is nothing else I need to replace.
I stopped at a garden nursery on the way home. I was hoping to find some Wandering Jew, the deep purple kind. But no. They didn't have any. I did find some delightful little plants for the wire basket plant thing-y I bought at a consignment shop recently. I painted the wire red. I hadn't found anything that would fit in it and look nice with plants. So when I got home I sprayed three pots blue, dropped them inside and voilà!
I also fell in love with this plant. Of course, I don't remember the name, but it is a succulent with pretty red and orange flowers. Sorry the pic isn't very clear, but the breeze was blowing the plant a little.
It is really pretty, whatever it is. The woman said that since it is a succulent, I can bring it in in the winter and it will do well in the house.
I got the gauge for the propane tank on my grill. Thank goodness. No more running out of gas in the middle of something because I couldn't tell how much was left. I also got a replacement plug for the dispenser in the dishwasher for JetDry. I apparently didn't put it back in right once time, and it fell out against the heating element and was warped.
Boy, I had a productive day! But then, there's that damn shower curtain.
