Our weekend was spent inside, avoiding torrential downpours of rain. The horrid weather system that caused flooding in the panhandle arrived in the Tampa bay area early Friday morning and finally cleared out yesterday. Thankfully, we were spared the storms Thursday evening to enjoy Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band’s concert over at the Tampa fairgrounds.
I have to say, for our 8th show it was amazing! The set list was one surprise after another and I was actually sad it was over. Then as we were walking to the car, we spotted NHL hockey players, PC Labrie and Teddy Purcell hanging out by their limo. If we hadn’t been in a hurry to avoid the rush we may have stopped for a photo op rather than just wave and yell to them as we were hurrying past.
I did find a little time to play with a shade of gray in our bathroom. I discovered a new line of paint at Target, it’s their devine color line. I picked up a sample of Devine Mirage. Honestly, there’s nothing remarkable about it. It’s a decent neutral gray, not too dark, not too light and rather similar to Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. The Devine color line comes in 8oz samples and 1 quart containers and at $29.99 for a quart, it’s rather pricey. It would be great for accent pieces but to do an entire room would be expensive. If you find a color you like you can always take it to Home Depot or Lowes and have them color match it, for a lot less money.
Of course, the highlight of my weekend was waking up to find water under our refrigerator Sunday morning. We pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned up the mess. Two loads of laundry later, I took apart the bottom to find the leak. As handy as I consider myself, this turned out to be a job for the repairman. So, I am waiting for him to arrive to fix the problem.
And that folks was life at the our house this weekend……
