Its Sunday and I just got done painting upstairs over our windows in the dinning room the places that our fresh peach color needed touch ups on. This morning I went out in a thunderstorm to stalk up on groceries for the week and I’m sitting here looking around realizing that the things we want to do and get done around our house, simply will take all year to do. I have hopes that come Thanksgiving, “Baby B’s Birthday, we will be done with our “inside” house projects”. Part of the reason its taking so long to paint the inside of this place is, the previous owners painted over drywall they put up without priming it first. So our painting efforts are being slowed down drastically. Every time we peel up painters tape off the wall it peels the paint up with it that we painted days or the week before. It should only take 24 hours or less for paint to dry and its a big pain in the you know what! But hopefully by the holidays we can take a break for a while and next spring focus our energy on the outside house projects we want to do like put up new siding on the house and paint the entire outside. Its kind of a dingy cream color with weird forest green trim and I hate it. I’ve already got my exterior house paint colors picked out for next year.
The big project until it snows will be “de-weeding” the lawn. It is atrocious!! I look across the street at our neighbors house and see their beautiful weed free lawn and I just want to run across the street and ask if I can take my shoes off and walk in it. Would that be weird? LOL. Yeah probably. Speaking of neighbors… these same neighbors have two boys and a girl and the youngest boy has the same name as J Myster and last week they brought us cookies. The next day J Myster and I made them apple cinnamon muffins and a thank you card with stick figures of the family inside. We even included Sammy the cat.
Well I hope you are having a great Sunday and a good start to next week!
