I promised pictures...

I promised pictures of my bedroom, and of the Alzheimer's contribution. Well, one promise kept is better than none, right? Here's the bedroom picture. I even staged the shot with the quilts. None of them are big enough for my bed, but one day, there might be one that is.

Did you buy some stock in a tissue company when I announced I was cleaning? Four big boxes emptied and counting. I knew the job was a big one, but I decided the less I thought about it, the better. I had to clean the available area, move things, clean the newly available floor and wall space, paint the wall, clean the paint off the floor, paint the trim, clean the paint off the floor again, move the furniture back, and clean the normally available area again. Then move on to the next wall and repeat. All four walls are done now. I still need to organize the stuff that is in the cabinets, and bring some stuff back that was sitting on top of the cabinets. I am hoping to leave the top of the cabinets free.

I'm not reneging on the other promise to make quilts for the Alzheimer's initiative. Just making it at my pace.

My sister and I helped sell kulfi which is a type of ice cream at the Indian festival this weekend. They sold them for $3.50 each, and the line was never ending, at least until they ran completely out. Understandably, because it is delicious. As you can tell, I've looked up the recipe. I'm not sure it is a good idea for me to make it though, because the dryer still likes to shrink jeans.

Woohoo - looks great!!!!! That has to be a huge relief to be done. That's a LOT of work!
That ice cream sounds yummy and totally unnecessary in my life. I wonder if a new dryer would stop shrinking my jeans????? When I can't bend over to tie my shoes I know I'm in trouble!

Your room looks totally fabulous! I love the staging area. Why not show off several quilts at once, I say! And we all know how the best laid plans, intentions and good thoughts go awry when ice cream of any kind enters the to-do list. And dang, it must be a dryer virus that's going around!!!! So, it's from you that I caught the dang thing, hey? Thanks a lot and pass the kulfi!!! If we have to suffer we might as well join you in the prescribed treatment!

I have had kulfi before! Both here in the US, as well as while in India. Good stuff.Most Indian desserts are very rich!

Your room is looking great, especially with those quilts on the bed!

Mmmm... beautiful colors. My DH would cringe if I wanted to paint with color. He is a former house painter and everything needs to be off-white. Ugh. It took moving heaven and earth to get the living room wall painted burgundy.
