    Several of us have mentioned that we're not that keen on yellow, except maybe in small quantities.

    The Color Psychology of Yellow
    https://www.verywellmind.com/the-color-psychology-of-yellow-2795823

    Some of the key characteristics that are often associated with the color yellow include:

    Attention-grabbing: Since yellow is the most visible color, it is also the most attention-getting color. Yellow can be used in a small amount to draw notice, such as on traffic signs or advertisements.

    Difficult to read: Yellow is also the most fatiguing to the eye due to the high amount of light that is reflected. Using yellow as a background on paper or computer monitors can lead to eyestrain or vision loss in extreme cases.

    Energetic: Yellow can also increase metabolism.

    Frustration: Yellow can also create feelings of frustration and anger. While it is considered a cheerful color, people are more likely to lose their tempers in yellow rooms and babies tend to cry more in yellow rooms.

    Warm: Yellow is a bright color that is often described as cheery and warm.


    (the article explains further)


    I've read elsewhere that yellow is a bad choice for a room because of that frustration factor and because it's very hard to relax in a yellow room.

    We've got yellow walls in our place, but they are a very light yellow, so it's not bad. I would not want them any brighter/darker than that. And there is a lot of blue to off-set it: full-length blue curtains on four large windows in the main living area.

    Rori:

    (((Dr. Katie))): I am sorry that your DH is unwilling to go to services with you, although I can understand his reluctance to go. :flowerforyou:

    Thanks. It's not so much that he's unwilling, but that he doesn't think he can comfortably sit in a pew for an hour. His stitches from his surgery are all right at the bend of his waist. He needs to slightly recline or stand to be comfortable. We watched the sunrise service together in the sunroom, and he watched the 11:00 service online while I attended in person.

    Here's hoping that this week will bring success for him in healing and success for me in getting back on track with my weight loss/eating/exercising/working my finger goals.

    Barbie, what is your opinion of the guest hosts so far on Jeopardy? I liked the first two and enjoyed seeing Katie Couric's outfits each day, but Dr. Oz was not a favorite.

    :) I love Ken Jennings (I listen to his podcast, " Omnibus"), I liked Mike Richards, the producer, I agree with you about Katie Couric's outfits, but I was glad to see the end of Dr. Oz.

    The TV didn't come on until about 7 pm. :)

    Machka in Oz

    I love not having the TV on. It hasn't been on since last Tuesday evening. I need to work on less computer and phone screen time.

    Tina in CA

    That's one of the things I like about cycling. It's too hilly to go right from home, so we drive to better locations and then ride ... a weekend ride can take me away from my computer for 3 or 4 hours! :)


    M in Oz

    I'm envious you can take your bikes elsewhere. Mine won't fit in my car and there isn't a hitch and ball rack for it yet. I don't want one that hangs off the back. My bike is heavy and those are not as sturdy. Our roads around here are atrocious and dangerous for biking. I'd love to take them where there are better surfaces.

    I love wearing yellow, if it's muted a bit or mixed with a pattern of some type. One of my favorite shirts is yellow with big white flowers. Unfortunately, it also has skin colors mixed where the moths got to it.

    Catching up here.
    Has anybody been watching the Stanley Tucci series Searching for Italy? What a beautiful examination of the relationship between culture, environment, economics, art, and food. It is so nice to see such respect for the different cuisines.

    Debbie I am so sorry that your cat has died. Our furbabies are so special to us and are family in every possible way.

    Lisa A very happy birthday. I remember reading your first mystery. Have you published more? DM me.

    CheriAre you still crocheting beautiful blankets. I am in awe of your skill. They are all so beautiful and you seem to finish them in no time at all.

    Kim It is so hard to take care of family members without work being affected. Maybe your brother will wake up.

    Heather What fun for Easter. I understand what you mean about noise! Antiques Roadshow and Midsomer Mysteries are 2 of my favorites. Are they still being produced in the UK? Both are here only on reruns. The US version is posting the current values of the pieces selected. It is fun to try to guess whether the value has increased or decreased. It appears that no one wants dark furniture.

    Rebecca Athena looks just like a tiny you. I love the name. On each side of the family, we had Minerva. One was always called Minerva and the other Min. Elegant ladies, both.

    Kelly A new grandchild on the way. I will hope along with you until further along.

    Matchka Keep those biking pictures coming. It is great to see Australia. I worked there years ago and I know that everything has changed. About the only thing I recognize from pictures of Sydney is the opera house and the bridge and nothing from Brisbane, Melbourne, or towns on the Queensland south of Cairns and north of Rockhampton. I still remember how excited I was to see a kangaroo for the first time in the outback on the way to work.

    Karen The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation is having its annual big fundraiser and many people are having virtual silent auctions. You never know what people will bid on for a good cause.

    Pip Your decorating is so inspiring. Do you conduct virtual consultations? I never know what to do for window treatments. I love the light curtain.

    Pat Needle phobia is so common. I think it is the reason that some people are reluctant to get the 2-shot COVID vaccines and are waiting for the J&J.

    Barbara "Earth tones look soiled to me. Oranges and yellow need not apply." My exact thought about these tones for clothing for me. Although I do have an apricot dining room and yellow trim in my kitchen with cabinets and wall two shades of green - mint and avocado. It is a craftsman style house with the original painted cabinets and so I continued the paint rather than try to strip them. I am redoing the kitchen and putting on addtion this year (if I can ever get contractors to return calls or give estimates). This will necessitate all new cabinets. I am going against the white trend and putting in wood cabinetry. I also will match (I hope) the original wood floors throughout the rest of the house.

    My favorite color is blue. I look best in royal blue and wear navy blue most of the time instead of black. I also like fuchsia and frequently wear a fuchsia pashmina. I have one red pashmina that is blue toned. Other than that, I do not wear red. I do wear red matte lipstick with my navy and a dark matte fuchsia lipstick with other colors. In the 70s, for about 3 years, I really liked earth tones and yellow was my favorite color. Some pictures of me in these colors disabused me of the thought of wearing them and about that time, the earth tones/hippie trend seemed to disappear. I have always liked blush pink and sage green together for decorating with touches of a rich burgundy thrown in.

    Everyone- stay well.

    Kylia: It is good to see that you’re posting again! :star:

    Machka: I like the light yellow very much, but I am not fond of bolder yellows in my clothing or wall color. It seems overwhelming. :flowerforyou:

    Lisa: Happy 61! :heart:


    Last night I called our daughter to chat and was surprised to discover that she was hosting a large party. We’ve been in lockdown so long that it is our new normal. She lives on an acreage in a small town in rural Illinois. I was surprised that she was hosting a party with many guests. I know that she has been vaccinated for some time. I hope that is true for her guests, too. There is plenty of room for social distancing if some guests have not been vaccinated.

    Our niece will be getting married in a few months, and our daughter is planning to come. We are thrilled that she will be here. She may bring her daughter along & it will be a treat to see and spend time with them both. I miss them and will be delighted to see them.
