We are busy painting so short iPhone post today. Happy Halloween! Lola is mad about the whole costume situation so she won't look at me.

I got home from lunch today and couldn't find Lola. Usually locating her isn't an issue...she is either right there to greet you as you walk through the door, or she is laying on her bed that is in full view of the door wagging her little nubby tail. But today, neither of those situations were playing out. I hollered and hollered. I went into my room (on occasion, she has followed me in there and not followed me back out, thus resulting in imprisonment in my room), but she wasn't there. I was starting to think she had "R-U-N-N- O-F-T!" (name that movie).
Then I go into the other "wing" of the house (that makes it sound real grand, or course, it isn't) and find her sitting on the guest bed in a frozen position...statute like...holding this pose...

drum roll please.........
According to the results, I'm a Snickers because "Your tastes tend to be more complex and multilayered; you like sweets but are most satisfied when they're paired with warm and savory flavors. Your standards are high, and you're most satisfied when they're met, but you don't take offense when they're not." Uuuuhh, okay? I'm not sure what that says about me, but I do like a good Snickers on occasion!

There was no progress on the bedroom re-do this weekend. I may have chronic fatigue syndrome. Or maybe just chronic laziness syndrome. Or maybe depression from my football team's poor and pathetic showing this weekend. Any way you look at it, it requires lots of napping and tv watching on the weekends.
Really what I decided was that all I had time for this weekend, if anything, was getting the primer up. Then I thought What a pain in the butt! I mean I would have to move the existing furniture into the middle of the room and make the mess, only to have to clean it up enough to live in it for a week until I got around to actually painting. So I decided it would be best to make the mess come and go all on the same weekend.
Hopefully this weekend between Friday's "Scare at the Square" and Saturday's football and Trick-or-Treaters and a Sunday trip to Canton, I will be able to prime and paint. So ambitious. I should start an iv drip of energy drinks now!

In non SATC news, I'm planning to put a layer of primer over my chocolate brown walls in my bedroom and am wondering what time I can expect y'all over to help today?
Speaking of service, check out my "new" section over to the right under "List of the Week". My list has been pretty stale lately and I've been feeling fairly uninspired to come up with a new list on a weekly basis. So for now, I've decided to highlight a worthy cause every week. Sometimes it will be organizations that need monetary donations, but this week, it is all about needing a little of your time. If you have a cause you would like for me to highlight, either comment about it or shoot me an e-mail (the link is over on the right too).

First of all, today is my birthday. 33 seems old, so yuck! I would like for each and every one of you to come help me paint my bedroom this weekend as your birthday gift to me. No? Some blog friends you are!
Get ready for the biggest photo display yet. On Saturday afternoon we drove down the most idyllic street you have ever seen. It was on the Isle of Hope. You drive down this barely paved, single lane, winding road. On one side is the river and on the other side are these magnificent homes. Each home you pass is more breathtaking than the previous one. I would gladly move into any of them! Each house has a dock, so they just walk down their exquisitely manicured front lawns, out their white picket fence gates and cross the street to reach their docks. I tried to leave some of my photos out, but they are all so lovely it was hard! Here is a great sampling...
