Rain, Leaves and Eco-Paint

This is the view out my front window today.

Across the street from our new house there is a freezer 'factory'. Occasionally they get a bit noisy and drive me around the bend. I can't wait to get some more trees planted to block out the eyesore.

This is the view out my back window today.

Isn't it dreamy? *sigh* When I feel a bit tense about the folks across the street I just look at this and remember how lucky I am.

I've been working on my bedroom. The Mr. was getting impatient because it was a complete disaster. I decided to go with the Rona Eco Recycled Interior Paint I used on the bathroom since it seemed to cover fairly well and it made me feel like I was doing one little thing to be a bit greener. I needed 3 cans to paint the bedroom (it's massive), I chose "Sand" from the 16 available colours only to find that each bloody tin was a different shade! Ug! Ug! Ug! Take a look at the difference...

It's totally noticeable and looks a mess :(

I'm going to make myself happy by looking out of my back window again.

*P.S. Rona has looked into the problem and believes that during a packaging change a tin was mis-labled. They've been totally awesome and I'm pleased as punch with their efforts :)
