|Christmas Tree - 2008|
Beautiful sunny day - COLD.
I've been painting that little laundry room of mine - trying to get ready for my new washer and dryer. Still no delivery date.
The thought of painting can be a stressful thought - one that I kept putting off. But for me, it's one of those tasks, that once I do it, I enjoy it. I hum, I think, I talk to myself. After wards, I clean up and I really feel as if, I accomplished something.
I admit, I do hate cleaning the brushes and roller. I wrap them in plastic and stick them in the refrigerator until I am done.
I'm not done yet - one more coat today and some touch ups and then the husband takes over, this weekend, with putting the floor in.
It was cute last night - I had the cat and the dog, watching me paint.
I still have not started decorating for Christmas. I don't feel the need because of the painting. We'll start this weekend. That is late for us but we're still in the home improvement mode - actually I think we are stuck!
I have an old artificial tree I bought a couple of years ago from a thrift store. It's one of those really tall ones. It's also hard to put up. Have you seen those ones, that lie flat on the floor, and you just "pop" them up? Convenient concept, just not my style. We used to go into the forest and chop one down. (with the proper permit of course)
I haven't started playing Christmas music yet either. It just doesn't go with painting.
"Paint the room, paint the room, paint it all the way,
so much fun, to paint the room, because my washer and dryer are on the way."
