Question 1 - I need some fluff to read. Not too fluffy, but fiction, and fun. I just read all of the Thursday Next novels and enjoyed them. I'm reading Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle again right now and still debating the merits of attempting to make my own cheese. I need to read less practical stuff for a while. Suggestions?
Question 2 - Matt is gone this weekend and I am about to go all Martha on my laundry room's ass. So should I a. use up the spare can of baby blue paint and make it all crisp and clean and blue (the trim is already white) and ignore the brown and green tones in the rug, or b. suck it up and go buy a can of cream/light brown and make it nice and warm to go with the tones in the rug. It's basically free vs. matching. And I worry that using the blue will just make me want to replace the rug (which is more expensive than buying just a can of paint). Either way it will be nicer than it is now, and not take very long (it's a tiny room), but still, I can't decide! Help!
