Trail Mix Spelt Cereal + Possible Paint Colours

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 16, 2009

Good morning!

Today is Family Day in Ontario today. It is a national holiday provincial holiday created for families to have a long weekend to spend together. It just so happens to be my niece’s 1st birthday today so we will be with family coincidentally! :) The party starts at 4pm later this afternoon.

I had a wonderful bowl of Trail Mix Spelt cereal this morning:


The Mix:

  • Spelt cereal (about 1.5 cups)
  • Almond Slivers
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Dried cherries
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Almond Breeze in Original

This cereal was so delicious and left me feeling energized. :)


Now for some paint colours that we are thinking of doing:


Click to enlarge– I labeled all the colours with what room we are thinking.

I picked most of these colours. Eric either liked them (Basement, living/family room, entry way, etc) or didn’t (my girly bedroom and bathroom colours).

For the main livable rooms (e.g., family room) we will go with a neutral (tan), however I would like to go a bit unexpected with other rooms such as the dining room and spare bedroom. :)


Some emotions don’t make a lot of noise. It’s hard to hear pride.  Caring is real faint –like a heartbeat. And pure love — why, some days it’s so quiet, you don’t even know it’s there.

Love the colours! I’m sure it’s going to look fantastic!

PS: I’m in BC and no holiday here :-( Boo!

actually, it’s a provincial holiday, not a national one. only celebrated in ontario, alberta and sask.

since i’m not provincial regulated (work for the feds) i don’t get the day off and i’m very bitter about it

I love picking paint colors too! My husband and I have been into colors for years, even before it was in style … so we would get either “interesting” or “really cool” comments from people. I like that peach one of the far left bottom for a bedroom. It may be girly but is very warm and feng shui. Have fun!

I think that golden green would look gorgeous as an accent wall. It might be bold, but I think it would make a great statement. Have fun with the paint colours, remember you can always change them!

I’m also in BC so no family day for me. :( I believe we have to wait until April for a day off!! Oh well, at least it’s beautiful and sunny today. I’ll just have to enjoy it from the window. :)

Great colors! I say go for it with the dining room! I love when people choose different colors for special rooms like that.

The cereal looks great! (Sorry, Green Monster!)
