The Week of Painting
Good morning! I have been knee deep in painting the main level. Well actually, my husband is the painter. I am the packer upper and the cleaner upper and the wall prep gal. He has quite the energy and can paint all day long. He has this week off and he was hoping to have some down time.
However, last night the hallway and stairwell were finished and we still have the landing, dining room and powder room. We are amazed at how bright the house looks now that it's freshly painted. Might I add that I was amazed at how filthy some parts of my house are?!? And I'm super clean!!
I decided to leave the area above the kitchen cabinets empty. I just don't want to wash anything anymore. My husband suggested we buy decorative pillows and shove them up there but they would just get greasy and grimy as well. We are going to try not to cook anything that would create a grimy film. I'll keep you up to date on that personal goal.
During the week we've been listening to the Steely Dan channel on Pandora (husband's pick not mine) and love how not a single song was repeated. And there was a span of about four hours that not a single Steely Dan song was played. When we drove up to New Hampshire a few years ago we played the Talking Heads channel (my pick) and the whole way up not a single Talking Heads song. Love when that happens!
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend filled with sunshine and happiness.
Edited to add: This is my 1000th post! My oh my do I have lots to say for the next 1000 :)
