The kids and I have had painting the house on the list. We've lived here seven years; it was time for a little TLC. We took this on as one of our Wednesday projects. Wednesdays, of late, have been days that we take off from going to the office in favor of something like a road trip or... for the month of October... home improvement. We still have a few shutters to rehang and some trim and doors to paint, but we were able to finish the bulk of the job today.
It was a lot of work, but it looks so much better! I came home this evening and was actually filled with pride just looking at the house (even in the near-dark!)
Anyway... that's my excuse for not getting much writing work done today! But my mind is now spilling over with ideas. One day of painting = several pages of material... at least!
|I am fortunate to have three talented, hard working kids. I had a bit of a neck ache from all the looking up today, but didn't have to spend much actual time on a ladder myself.|
