Writing Lots, Collecting Paint Chips, and New Lighting

I’ve spent the whole day writing, and I’ve finally hit 30,000 words in my novel for NaNoWriMo! I’m glad I’ve made some significant strides in my wordcount, especially since I found it so challenging to write the last few days. I’ve written over 5,000 words today, so please excuse me if this journal entry doesn’t make any sense, haha!

Tonight we got a ride to Homebase, courtesy of the in-laws, and I managed to get so many paint chips that at one point I seriously wondered whether or not an employee was going to ask me to leave the building. I’m pretty much set when it comes to paint chips, which is awesome because they’re really useful to have around. I’ve already sorted them into groups (calm, fresh, rich, and warm tones) and then in each group I’ve sorted them by color. It’ll be interesting to go through the colors I’ve picked out for my sister-in-law on Thursday! Tomorrow I’m going to work on a wall elevation using the colors so that I can show some examples of how the finished product will look. Sometimes choosing accent wall colors can seem a little daunting, and visual aides always help.

I don’t remember if I mentioned it before, but sometime last week I finally found a table lamp that I really loved so I bit the bullet and went ahead and ordered one. It came in the mail today and I’ve already set it up and it is even better than I thought it could be! The only downside is the fact that it came with an EU plug so I have to use an adapter, but I’ll definitely make sure to double check the specifications when I order more. I really love the design of this lamp, and it’s got a touch dimmer so it’ll be a great addition to our bedside tables. I’m so picky when it comes to lamps so it feels great to have finally found one that I love!

Anyway, I’m going to wrap it up here. Wednesday’s going to be a busy day of interior design work and writing, and then hitting up the gym later. See you tomorrow!
