How about this stuff sitting on my kitchen desk?
Well, it all came from my two china cabinets in the living room.
If you remember I have already taken everything out of these cabinets to move them TWICE this year. Well, today makes 3 times since January. I am getting very tired of moving these cabinets!
I had to move it all again because I have finally convinced my husband to paint the living room. Well, actually, we are both painting the living room. I can't count how many times I have climbed that ladder with a little paintbrush to cut in on EVERY SINGLE BEAM, edge and corner of the 20 ft. x 12 ft. living room. DH then uses a roller. It took quite a few hours. This is a better workout than when I used to go to the gym! I first painted these beams on a vacation week while listening to the OJ Simpson trial. That's how long ago it was! We are way overdue for new paint. This time the ceiling and beams are going bright white. What a difference! Way back then white was out and I wanted everything in a light tan. Now I am back to liking pure white. What goes around, comes around.............
The walls are going from peach to Ice Blue....I have not even opened the can to see what the color looks like. Whatever it is, that's what it will be..........but that will be tomorrow because today I still have to finish the windows, doors, molding, etc. Somehow I think DH is getting the easier part of this job.
I am not the neatest painter on the planet. This is my arm. Too bad you didn't see the clothing. I backed into a painted beam (that connects the dining room to the living room) twice. The purple pants I had on were about 50% white by the time I finished. I am saving them to wear tomorrow and then I will throw the pants and shirt away. That's OK because I need space in my closet.
In fact cleaning the closet is my task for this evening. DH is not home and I have had about all I can take of painting for one day.
If you think I have been working too hard for a vacation week, you are totally correct! I have been complaining about just that for most of the day today. It's the curse of working women.
The only time we can get any extra tasks done is when we take a vacation. It's sad, but that's just the way it is today.
I am only working until mid day Friday and then I am heading up north for a bit of fun. DH and I have reservations to see a master illusionist from Canada on Sat. night. I will tell you more about him later.
It's only 54 degrees here today. We never did get the rain they have been predicting all week. Now they say it's coming tomorrow. I hope so because I have been too busy to go out and water my plants.
