Thank you! Many of you who wrote in response to my last post commented that I must be "overwhelmed with requests"... um, just a little!! But it's a wonderful problem to have, and I'm happy to see requests for a holistic health consultation still rolling in. I look forward to talking with as many of you as I can and will be in touch with each of you to set that up by the end of the week (or over the weekend).
My apologies if I was unclear in my post, some of you asked if the one hour consultation is free - yes it is! Doing this work is required practicum for my education, and an opportunity for you to learn a bit more about health coaching and the work I'll be doing when I begin seeing clients. I look forward to our time together!
Now, for this morning's news. New house colors!
For weeks and weeks (months it seems!), every spare sunny moment above 55 degrees has been spent painting our home (original colors). With the arrival of November (one of my favorite months), we just might have to call it good enough for the season. It's quickly getting far too cold to paint. Our goal was to finish one side before winter - we're almost there, but I'm letting go of the small section that will likely remain until spring. It'll still be there, I'm sure.
The green is two shades lighter than I asked for, but it's fine. The trim has a bit more yellow in it than I was expecting, but I'm actually happier with it. It was rather comical when the paint started going on the house, there was a lot of "hey, I didn't pick this color... this looks kind of strange... are you sure we can live with this... it's not really what I was going for." But racing against the calendar, and a very wet and rainy autumn, I embraced these colors and just started brushing it on. For some reason, I'm not really attached to the house colors (surprising), I'm just happy it's getting cleaned up and fresh looking!
And you can't tell from the picture, but the porch (and front breezeway door) are purple. A very pretty, heather grey kind of purple. Exactly what I wanted. We got one color right! Overall, it's a very sweet, homey, storybook cottage sort of combination, which suits us very well.
Now we have a bit of hibernation ahead of us to enjoy, followed by a spring and summer of painting for sure. This is definitely the biggest DIY project we've done so far. Giving in to, and accepting the time it's truly going to take is important for a peaceful state of mind with this project... a side a year? So be it. It sure is a pretty process, every step of the way.
