After we cleaned up the residue of the second day of painting, I looked at my reflection in the mirror. There's a really good chance I'm wearing as much paint as the walls.
Six hours of climbing ladders, stretching overhead, bending over, kneeling, sitting cross-legged on the floor. I am really tired but I feel SOOOOO great!!! Just a couple months ago, I would be in traction after attempting what I did today!
I just beamed up my computer for the first time today. I didn't track my meals as I went along as usual, but after putting everything in just now, I'm right on track. That made me feel good cos I was doing the mental calculations as I was going along.
Hubby's fixing his special clam chowder for dinner. And I know what's gonna happen after our tummys get full . . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
He said he's ready to go back to work tomorrow so he can get some rest.
I know I'm missing some great stuff by not reading everyone's blogs today . . . . but I'll have to catch up tomorrow . . . I can hardly keep my eyes open. And that's a great feeling.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I've been painting all day. I've got Belgium Waffle all over my hands.... that's the color of the paint in the living room. Hershey Syrup is smeared all over the wall in the hallway and Peanut Brittle in the kitchen. Ya'd think we were on a diet or something
Have stayed on plan today, mixing it up a bit, restructuring my meals and snacks. And it feels good. .. . . . I'm ready for dinner!!!
Three + hours of painting for my workout today! Squats, stretches, climbing ladders . . . oh yeah. That hot tub's gonna feel good!

I'm getting ready to paint another wall. And as so often happens, it's not as simple as it sounds. Before I can paint, I have to move the furniture and all the stuff covering the wall. But before that, I have to find somewhere to put the stuff that I have to move before I can move the stuff that has to be moved so I can paint.
On this particular wall we have the old garden gate that had been part of the deer fence around our garden for many years. It has a really old hand-sawn wood frame and some ratty, mangled fence wire that's survived the years. I love that old gate.
On another wall, we have the old barn door. Hung over the top corner is the rope my hubby's dad used for his horse. And on another corner hangs a rusty bunch of barbed wire that he coiled up and left on a nail 30 years ago.
Next to that is our Cabinet of Curiosities. Odds and ends. Stuff we've collected over the years. Woodworking tools, grading instruments from hubby's days as a lumber grader, an old watch and chain, old kitchen utensils, a belt buckle, a tobacco tin, an old cigar box, a set of china Collies given me by my dad when I was a kid. Not much worth a nickle but I wouldn't take a million bucks for any of it.
After all the clutter has been moved, all that's left is a bare wall, in desperate need of a makeover.
An empty canvas. Sort of like each new day.
What shall I do with it?
