Moving along….

So the ‘tan’ on the right is what I painted last week. I got grey last night and I like it MUCH better.

Especially compared to the tan/yellow from before. (I was just emptying my paint brush to stop for the night. The stuff is coming off the wall tonight.)

Then for grins and giggles, I started on the white trim just to see what it would look like. First coat of each.

Just one coat and it looks so much better. Too many nicks in the woodwork which brought out a different color. I have enough paint, I may even do a third coat. We’ll have to see how the second one turns out first.

I will be SO happy to get this done. All my walls will be one color but more importantly, the WOODWORK will be all one color.

I’m not sure I’ll keep the curtain on the closet. I like how I thinned it out, put stuff in bins. That ‘step’ just gives it a WHOLE different look.

I like…

I’m a little shaken….

Lori above, me on the left, Melissa on the right.

This was BooBooPalooza in Georgia, March 2010.

Lori died May 9, 2021. I miss that woman more than words can say. I miss our 3 hour phone conversations, our times together that were SO much fun. I just miss her.

The woman on the right. I just found out she was murdered back in June. Melissa and I used to have a lot of fun. We were no longer friends and didn’t speak. But it doesn’t make her death any less horrific.

To be the only one alive in this photo is kinda freaking me out. They were FAR too young to be gone.

RIP Melissa. You deserve peace.

Something ucky is nice again….

This was my hallway Saturday morning….

Saturday afternoon, we had gotten most of the linoleum up and were working on the backing and glue. Remember this stuff was put down in the 70’s or 80’s so lots of traffic had made it adhere quite well.

Sunday morning….

Later Sunday morning after I played alone for a while. MOST of the glue is gone.

Added some filler for nail holes and gouges. The floor in the closet was NOT good. So he framed in a floor to cover the booboo’s.

And now?





Well? How does it look? I have the old furnace duct with me today to get a new one. And I’m repainting the walls a light grey, I think so I can paint the trim white or cream because there are so many paint spatters from past attempts. I LOVE it. And now I can’t wait to start painting!
