Nobody still quite understands what she was thinking when she chose that color swatch of green. It makes no sense to paint an entire kitchen, including the refrigerator, this putrid shade of split-pea soup that had been sitting out for a week or so. Imagine what that does to a person early in the morning, barely making it to the coffee pot, to be attacked by that lovely shade of green, perfectly offsetting the shade of sea-foam just past the kitchen door. Nannie plans to dress it up, though. She will hang handmade needlework over the breakfast table. She will bejewel the refrigerator with magnets from every vacation spot she and Paw-Paw have visited with his old war buddies. She will hang a border of bluebird wallpaper just over the cabinets. Hopefully, no body will ever really notice the split-pea stained walls.
