My house reeks.

We are finally in the home stretch of having the lower level completed – only a few weeks left to go. Right now they’re working on staining the wood, and goodness me but there is a lot of wood down there to stain. It all smells strongly of chemicals and whatever else goes into making the wood the color that it will eventually be.

Thankfully we’re doing this in April, when I can open a few windows and let the house breathe, and not in the chill of December (when the weather is more like this). Because I don’t think I could live her otherwise.

Whenever I think of the word ‘stinky’ my mind goes to the movie Green Mile. They’re all on death row, and the crazy guy in the corner cell starts singing, “Barbeque, me and you, stinky pinky, pew, pew, pew.” Yeah, a little morose. But it happens every time. Even my kids sing it when they hear the word – because their daddy got it stuck in their little heads as well as mine.

Do you connect random things with old movies?

  1. Love the color of the cardi (and swapped how awesome) on you. And the scarf is perfect!

    My life is filled with movie quotes. Or is it Seinfeld quotes.

    🙂 have a great Wednesday!

  2. Darling outfit… love the bold colors! And yes, I connect so many things to movies. A lot of my sayings over the year have come from them!! Couldn’t watch Green Mile though… my stomach is too weak! 🙂
