The first time I woke up this morning I’d been dreaming that I had a bear trap piercing my skull.
I opened my eyes and immediately wished I hadn’t. The pain from behind my eyes seemed to stab my brain.

We have plenty of cold and allergy meds and I went straight for the decongestants. My husband brought me some Advil and water too. I sat on the couch and gradually the pain began to subside.

The phone rang rather early. It was the man we hired to paint the house. He wanted to come over a little sooner than scheduled to do some prep work. Man, is he ever thorough and good! He did such a fantastic job with our old house that I have full confidence here too! As he was getting ready to leave I gave him the paint chips for our colors. We talked a little about color and the quality of materials our builder had used when building the house (good quality!), and as we talked I recognized something absolutely thrilling – someone else who works to create the perfect visual picture!

Every bit of landscaping I do is visually pleasing from every angle; colors harmonize and have plenty of potential to look beautiful long term. It’s something I could appreciate so much about Monet – using plants and flowers to create the perfect painting.

Anyway, the painter told me not to worry about cutting back some of the plants today. I’d been psyched to sing the Lumberjack song whilst working outside today. It works out well for me though, considering how I felt when I woke up!

Since my topic is light today – I thought I’d also add a link to a video for a song my son recommended by Gnarls Barkley called Crazy. Check out their site here too. I see they’ve done another version of “Gone Daddy Gone”. 🙂
