Slogging On

There isn’t much to report this week.  M continues to work on his outdoor stairs, which have turned from a fun challenge to a frustrating morass.  I am continuing to paint.  We’ve painted every weekend since Memorial Day and I think we’re about halfway there.  I’m taking Fridays off for the rest of the summer to try to speed up the progress.

Today we are meeting with a color consultant from Devine Paint who recommended the colors for our friend’s house, which looks great.  We have given up and decided that we need professional help.  I am excited to turn the remainder of the house into a paint by numbers project.

Last weekend, we repainted the bedroom.  Astute readers will say, “But that wasn’t part of your remodel!”  Well, mostly true.  A window was moved from one wall to another, but more importantly, our bedroom became the scene of work — table saws, tile cutters, grout mixing, etc.  So it was a mess and needed some serious cleaning and repainting.  We just need to install the rest of the quarter rounds and find the screws to the mirror, and then that room is done.

It’s been a year since we lost Sybil.  We love the new guys, but Sybil will always hold a special place in our hearts.  We’re getting a Warhol-style portrait done of her to hang at the top of the stairs.  Just need to pick out the perfect photo to go from.  Which one do you like?

    Bottom right or top left photo is my vote.

    I love the artistry of the one on the bottom left (far off look, waves crashing) but my favorite is the one on the bottom right. For some reason, she looks sweet and friendly…

    Bottom left. I like the the air of general empty-headedness. The look that says, behold, and admire. And then run. I may look cute, but my moods are surly and changeable, and I may lacerate your forearm in a flash.

    I like the top left the best! And the house is going to be fabulous!!!
