A Wonderful Surprise and Productive Too
Today is Sunday, November 22, 2009. The weather man was right on today calling thunderstorms. This was a very good thing, this made sure that I had to stay indoors and get the things done that I needed to get done. Lately when I get outdoors, well I seem to loose track of time and nothing really gets done.
I was so delighted to have a surprise last night, #3 son showed up unannounced! Whoot! Yes, I am grinning from ear to ear, maybe a wee little tear of happiness. No one knew he was coming home for a couple of weeks. Happy mama here!
Now today we started my room. I got everything moved out of it and needless to say, the boys living room is full of my stuff. I love it! Ha, ha, I got to mess up your living room. LOL Then everything had to come off of the walls, shelves, curtain rods, pictures and that boarder. That boarder was a real bummer to get off. Took me probably close to an hour to get it off.
Now it was time to spray the wall with the mud. Soooo glad son #3 came home! He can run the hopper, I didn't have to do it. Not only is is messy, it is heavy with all of the mud in it. So now the mud is drying and I can paint tomorrow.
The Acorn Squash yellow will be the wall color and the Yellow Lettuce will be the trim color. I started soaking the beans this morning, so tomorrow I will throw them in the crock pot with the ham and onions for the bean soup. Thinking that this will keep the boys happy until supper time, this way I can paint away until I finish.
Would like to have it dry by Tuesday so that I can build in the shelf/table right on the wall. Under it I will have storage, don't think that I want cabinets, just open so that I can store in clear tote containers. Love those things. Maybe put up a little pastel curtain around it, but then maybe not. Will just have to wait and see.
Over all it was a very productive day, so looking forward to painting tomorrow. I enjoy painting, watching it all come together. But then I like to iron too. LOL A very happy camper today, lots done and son #3 will be here for two weeks.
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
