Tired but a fun day...

Hello Friends,

I am so tired right now. My arms hurt - we have been putting down paper, taping, painting the edges with the primer. I have been squatting and on the floor and bending over so much my back actually hurts right now.

But I am SO HAPPY. We have been making some great changes. I

ll show you a couple;
 (from the other owner) This is a window in the kitchen and We removed the shutter - the color is horrible in the wall and doesn't match anything - actually all the colors in the house are way too dark and with the shutters it makes the house look like a tomb.
 Also her pic - the dining room window  - shutter GONE
 (her pic) She had plantation shutters on both sliding doors and they are horrible  - GONE
 Do you see 4 colors here?? And look forward the shutter is off the slider - wow what a difference. I know you're gonna say "YOU DON"T LIKE PLANTATION SHUTTERS?"  Everyone else did. NO - but I will keep them in the other 3 bedrooms - FOR NOW anyways.
 I had helpers today - brought the dogs and they were so excited when we got there they ran back and forth smiling with all that room but they kept getting prickers in their paws. The back yard is full of weeds and rocks - we have to clean.
 Lisa my sis dropped off Maria Thursday afternoon and she is sleeping over for a few nights to help. She is trying to remove some weeds here.
These were the 4 colors I chose and we tried them on the walls - we all three like the bottom middle the best.
So this trimmer guy comes over today while we are working and offers to trim the tree and what ever. So I ask him how much for blah - blah - blah? He says $445, I go ask hubby and he says NO we don't have any money left. Then the guy says OK $395, Hubby still says NO. OK he says $350. NO hubby says - too  much - I tell him its really not. The guy leaves and comes back a while later and says $295 - hubby says NO, OK he says $240. What a deal we got for him being rude :-)
This is the front before. There is 4 giant birds of paradise that are too big and awful. He removed the all including roots - trimmed the tree and removed the 2 awful decrepid dog houses in the back.

Now look HOW CUTE!!
Later everybody - gotta eat a spinach salad and rest up for the morning. Oh what fun Work all day.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

Keep on BFC ' n :-)


  1. Love the pics, but I like those shutters:)

  2. Congrats on the house! I like your color. Take sweet rest and enjoy the fruits of your labor!

  3. Wow - what a difference in the front - way worth the money! Way to go guys!

  4. Love the house! Enjoy it's been a long journey.

  5. The house and yard are looking great! Maybe it's time to invest in some Advil!? I saw on fb that you didn't sleep well because of pain....yep, two advil and call me in the morning! LOL....

  6. Absolutely love the front! I agree with Kay, I love those kind of shutters but each to their own, right? Great job and what happy work to have! :)

  7. Love,love,love the house Rosalie! I'm just now getting caught up on reading blogs so I was so happy to see that you got the house and are already painting and moving in - YEAH!!!! I like the paint color you chose the best as well. Great choice. Wow - did you get a deal from the handyman guy. The house looks beautiful and I like how he cleaned up the tree in front of the house. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
