My dog Daisy is doing really well on her new anti-inflammatory medication. It's designed to shrink the bladder tumor and let her get back to a more normal lifestyle, and so far, it's really helped. Her strength is back and she even seems to be putting on a little weight. She might even enjoy a trip to the dog park!

Now if only the weather would cooperate. I'm afraid we did not venture out much this past weekend; the temps in Northern California reached 100F. The next person that kvells about "sweater weather" will get a swift kick from me.

While stuck indoors, I've been giving my daughter's old room a makeover. What do you think?

It's still a work in progress. We took up the carpet months ago--the hardwood is a bit scratched but pretty. We moved an old dresser in, as well as the futon. (I don't like the spread on the futon; I'd like a more old-fashioned pattern, I think.) We're going to keep the lavender curtains and walls for now, though I still reserve the right to paint because it's been bloody difficult to remove all the kid-smudges from the flat-based painted walls.

(That's a Time-turner on the window sill, in a handsome display box. I also reserve the right to scrap everything here and turn the entire space into a Harry Potter-themed guest room. So there.)

So glad Daisy is improving! I know you are so happy to see these results.

The room looks lovely (I adore those floors!). I'm also firmly entrenched in the 'Harry Potter-themed guest room' camp.

My brother came by and gave his $.02 about the room's progress. He would like to see my mother come up here and live with us. Good Lord. Easy for him to say!

I'm glad to hear that Daisy is doing better.

As for your Harry Potter Themed Room? Perfect!

And may I suggest this for painting the walls? (clicky the piccy) Image (

OMG, that is so beautiful! And unique, and within my skill set--always a consideration...

Room makeover is always fun.
