What was your project - you didn't say. Glad you were able to complete it.

Not a major redo in the bath - just having the popcorn ceiling scraped off & the ugly, peeling wallpaper removed & everything repainted. This is something we talked about doing when we bought the house in 1997 so as you can imagine it's only gotten worse. Would love to do more but this is all I can afford now. The final coat of paint is going on today so I'll post a picture when it's done. Don't really have any before pictures but I do like the after - for a small master bath anyway.

Good for you getting out and taking a walk. That's always refreshing. I got a little walking in today and we planted a bunch of Canna bulbs in pots, getting ready for Spring. It felt good to get my hands in the soil.

Have a wonderful week, and keep up the wonderful job you are doing!

No, unfortunately I have 12 more years of work! I am going to Ohio to see my family. My 13 year old niece had surgery for Scoliosis. I am going up for a long w3eekend to help out!
