new paint and more

Jürgen and I will try 3 new paint colors for the house.  They are all darker shades of terracotta.  So we will see if we can agree on a terracotta.  The painter wants to start painting in 2 weeks. I guess I will return from my trip to America to a freshly painted house.  I do hope we get it right.  We may very well go with the yellow we have.  That is the safe thing to do.  I've said all along I want terracotta, but it is very hard to get a good shade of terracotta.  It is often too pink or too brown.

Nicole travels to Oregon today.  She looks like she had a great time in Seattle.  I'm sure she will be sad to leave.

I'm home today with Jessica.  Her teacher is sick and taking the whole week off.  Jessica got sick last night.  She started to throw up and has a fever.  I teach for the Heidelberg MOPS group (mothers of preschoolers).  Jürgen will take the morning off so I can teach.  I'm talking about practical tips on cleaning a house.  My house isn't always clean, but my kids give me allot of opportunity to clean.  I'm a very experienced cleaner.  So I'll share some of what I know.  I’ll try to post some of those tips tomorrow after I teach.
