Dismal…


I just happened to be looking in my 1943 Webster dictionary because i wanted to look up the correct way to spell the word grey.

Is it grey….

or is it gray.

Well….apparently both words can be used…

and the definition pretty much states that…

well…

it’s a dismal color…

dull

cheerless…

not bright.

Oh…i totally agree…because i live here…right outside of chicago…

and the entire winter is bleek and dull…

very dismal.

But you know what…

i said heck {not the word i really said…but just go with it}….

i’m going to paint my bathroom…

i mean re-paint my bathroom ….

to my favorite pale grey….

the same color as my kitchen.

I guess to me….

grey in the bathroom is not at all

dismal and bleek…

but more like

soothing

and calm


My mother .in. law give me this vintage silver brush….

i think it belonged to her great granny….

but don’t totally hold me on my word here..

i’m just saying….

it might have

at least that’s what i tell people that ask

about it….

and even if it didn’t come from her great granny…

it came from someone’s granny.

And yes…

i am a lover of mirrors….

but don’t get me wrong…

i don’t stand in front of them for hours..

i promise….

alright….

i did once…

just once…

and it was a few months ago….

when i noticed something…

something evil was lurking on my scalp..

i hate to even say the word…

because you might not think i’m the real deal

anymore if i tell you.

You must pinky promise that if you should ever

run into me…

that you not ask me about it.

ok.

did i hear you promise….

alright….

i have started getting grey hairs…

{is it so random that here we are chatting about grey bathrooms and voila…hello grey hair…and if you scroll back up and look at the dictionary description..it says something about grey hair=elderly}

and i now color my hair on a regular basis.

screech

scream….

and i just had a revelation…

that i am in fact getting old.

i hate that word.

and i even wore spanx under my

dress at my party…

uggggh.

what is happening to me?

hold on…let me step away for a moment.

I’m back!

whew.

just had to grab a quick bite of some

peppermint bark….

yup….

that is the reason i had to wear some spanx

under the dress.

don’t worry though…i feel better now that i opened up

and told you a secret.

where was i….

oh…

the mirrors…..

i love the look of mismatched mirrors all

over a wall….and so i have been slowly

adding them to the bathroom.

Did i mention that this is the master bathroom…
yes….
my man uses this bathroom…
and so does lola….
this is the only bathroom that resides upstairs…
and this is one thing that my family knows..
and know my guests who stayed the night
on saturday…know now…
but one must not flush a la toilette while
one is in the shower…
it’s not a pretty site to hear one
scream…
because they are in fact…
now getting a cold shower .
