Holy Moly, Guacamole!

Friday December 11, 2009
Weather: low this morning was 9, high was 25. If you see anything different on any weather forecast, don't believe it! Although it might cool off tonight to maybe 6 or 7.
Our guacamole tree dropped it's second avocado this morning. The first one was gone when I went outside to pick it up. I really don't know what happened to it, but Jerry said it was either the squirrel who keeps running through our yard (although I think it was too big for the squirrel to carry) or the next door neighbor jumped the fence and got it. Either way, I knew it was just a matter of time before another one landed, and this time I got to it first. Ha!
I took a day off painting today. Although is mostly done, I still have about half a can of the blue/gray and 3/4 of a can of the buttermilk colour. So, I might as well keep going. I was just trying to decide which colour I would paint the hallway going into the bedroom. As promised, I have included in this post some pictures.....

This is the before picture, taken on the day we moved in and ~~

this is the after picture, taken today.
You can still see a bit of the yellow in the hallway behind where Jerry is sitting, so that is my next job. You can weigh in with an opinion if you want.... blue/gray or buttermilk like the fireplace?

This is our side yard and patio, kitchen to the right and living room to the left.

This is the sunroom at the back of the house.
Tomorrow we are going to go downtown to see what is going on in the plaza. Right now there are a LOT of explosions going on, and I expect they will be booming all night tonight and tomorrow night. Probably won't get much sleep this weekend.
