I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Here in Virginia we have started what we refer to as “Second Winter.” This usually comes after “Fake Spring” which we experienced last week with temperatures in the upper 60s. It was a glorious few days that makes it all the more sadder that it is in the upper 30s now.
Anyway, I didn’t come here to talk weather. I was just sitting here recuperating from a day spent at the Kid’s Expo with our girls (which is akin to recuperating from a night out on the town only worse as I am an introvert and to spend so much time surrounded by so many people is an absolute drain on the very fiber of my being but I had promised my girlfriend I would go with her and her girls so when we got there and saw the chaos the two of us hid underneath the Bonefish Grill table, which was handing out “Bang Bang Shrimp” samples, and let the children run amok…how’s that for a sentence?) and thought I might update the readers on the paint choice we had made. The painters were excited about the weather because, even though it is cold, it isn’t raining and they wanted to paint a particular portion of the house before the new roof went on the porch so, it was time to make our final decision.
We decided on Benjamin Moore Wetherburn’s Blue which is the darker shade of blue out of the two we were contemplating. It isn’t a traditional Victorian color, which would have been more earthy tones such as reds and greens, but it will be beautiful with the Benjamin Moore Capitol White trim and the Englert Mansard Brown metal roof and gutters. I only call out the make of the colors in case you are so curious you feel the need to Google them to see exactly what I am talking about.
So, without further ado, I give you a first glimpse at the new Sligo!

Wow, suddenly Sligo looks like a real house, not just a project. I am so excited for you. I had voted for the lighter of the colors, but seeing the picture believe you made the right choice.
It is perfect with the white trim.
What color will the cottage be?
