I have been wanting to paint my kitchen and dining area for the last 2 years or so. So, I finally got started this last week. I’m not getting any where fast. I did finally get the kitchen done after about a week. 006.jpg     This is a major project for me. So much trim work. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could start painting at the crack of dawn and paint all day. Nope, I gotta first go do all my chores. Then maybe get a few hours in before chores again. 007.jpg     I have to work around cow schedules, kid schedules and Earl schedules. Everybody missed the big clock on the wall. Hey Mom, what time is it? When are you getting the clock back up? What’s for supper, Mom? What are you doing today? It’s a no-brainer. Paint. Paint. Paint.010.jpg      Michael and I were trying to move that big cabinet back again and I was too lazy to take the dishes off before we heaved and hoed. Of course my expensive glasses toppled over and went crashing to the floor in a million pieces. Actually, I bought them at Dollar Tree for a buck. Haha. No loss there. I decided to go with the color Kilim Beige. That’s what my other favorite Aunt Martha and my Mom used years ago. So to be cool like them, I thought I had to use that too.

They know all about houses, paint, decorations…….the list goes on and on and on. 100_0551.jpg     Here’s my “cool” Mom. Some day when I grow up, I’m gonna be just like her. ( I’ll be getting a call from her very soon) Haha. Anyway, they know everything about paint. These cool ladies. Course this color I’m using was “hot” about 15 years ago so it could be that I’m still outdated. Who cares. I’ve made up my mind and I’m stickin to it. 006.jpg     I’ve been wearing the same paint clothes for the last 10 years. They’re getting a little tattered but if I wear anything else I’ll have a bad day. Or it could be the “mad cow” thing too. I’m still not finished. I’m now working on the dining room this week. Wonder how long that will take me?! Maybe if I fix myself a nutritious snack………..023     I’m thinkin that this will definitely do the trick. I’m painting tomorrow. Can’t wait……………..Carol
