Fog, baby birds, paint, and a tip

Hello friend on this monday morning.It is a rainy morning here. It has been raining for the past few days which has kept me from getting the grass mowed. If it rains much more I will be living in a jungle!!
The mornings have been peaceful around here. The other day I woke up and a thick fog had set in...

It was so pretty. The smell of the damp air reminded me of my papa Cables farm in kentucky! I remember it from when I was a kid. Funny how certain smells trigger memories.

A while back my Love and i were walking along the pond and I spotted a birds nest nestled in the cattails. It had three blue eggs in it. Well on Friday i was walking around the pond with my nephew and i spotted the nest again but this time there were three baby birds!

I was surprised that the nest had stayed put through all the storms that we have had!

I know I am being kinda random here but now I am moving on to yet another subject....

We finally painted the office!!! I use the term we very loosely. Have I mentioned I have the most wonderful husband in the entire world. I adore him!
The color I chose is Blonde from Sherwin Williams. It is kinda tan with a gold tone..does that make since? Colors are so hard to explain.

The color doesn't show up real well here. I took it this morning and it is rainy and dark outside. The lighting isn't the best. In order to start painting we had to move some stuff out that had accumulated over the last 2-3 years, yes it has been that long since we started this project, which made the mud room look like this....

The dust is bad I know....please don't judge me.

Ok, one more thing...I was made blueberry muffins and thought I would share a little tip I learned from somewhere..
If you turn the muffins in the pan like this to cool, it lets the steam out and keeps the muffins from getting a little soggy. Just thought I would share! 
Have a great day!
