Another week of home ownership and another week of painting and #1 son Scott coming for some carpentry projects. Making progress---BUT NOT there yet!
Meanwhile--a VERY short walk from the cottage is this playground. Grands LOVE coming to see Lulu---fun and games--and plenty to do. The big building in the background is a hospital. I am a couple of blocks from the "Hospital District" HUGE hospitals very close--may need a ward for the crazies before I finish this painting job.
I seem to struggle with color choices--have an entire library of those little sample containers. I finally settled on a "Summer Picnic" theme. Colors are "Summer Tan", "Sunbaked", "Vanilla Bean", and "Molasses". There seems to be a pattern in my preferences. With all these earth tones--somehow I got it in my head I was going to paint ONE room blue---got over that! With a small cottage---not brave enough to paint every room varying colors.
And here we have the "vanilla bean" kitchen. It took FOUR--count them four coats to cover the DARK blue walls. If you need ANY help with a painting project--NOW is not the time to ask! WHERE is my painting crew?
I thought I was moving away from all the questionable behavior--but a little tidbit was shared by a neighbor this week. It seems the man who lives across the street enjoys adult beverages---do not have a problem with that--BUT he also tends to walk out on the front porch to answer nature's call when he has over-indulged. After thinking this over---I believe I will buy an air horn and give it a blast when I spot this questionable activity. Perhaps like "Pablo's Dog" he can be retrained!
