I'm slightly exhausted. I've been painting all week at the lake house. I took a break yesterday to go buy more paint and pick up Lidia and Sawyer, after school. They are spending the weekend with me here at the lake. Sawyer got sick last night with a stomach virus. Bless it. Throwing up in LaLa and Papi's bed made him feel even worse. He was feeling better today, even though he had a fever this afternoon. And he apologized for keeping me up last night. I couldn't help but kiss his head multiple times, so hope I don't get it.....ain't nobody got time for that.
As bad as he felt, he and Lidia made a snack for me because I had been working so hard and all. They are sweet like that.
We don't let them use knives, especially when not supervised. So, Lidia said she used a butter knife to cut up the fruit. Bless her heart, she worked hard. And it was quite delicious, too.
Yeah, so....painting is for the birds. I'm not good at it. I get impatient and start making mistakes or dripping paint on stuff. So far, I've painted the den and foyer, but changed colors because the first one ended up being too gray. I was going for a light tan. I have the worst time trying to choose colors. Hopefully, this new color will be the one.
While I was at it, I decided to try a stripe on the laundry room walls. Well, actually the laundry room is a laundry closet and it was quite hard to paint without taking the washer and dryer out, but I did. Once again, thank heavens for yoga.
I saw something similar on Pinterest and wanted to try it.
It was quite time consuming,
But, I'm quite satisfied with the results.....
We still need to install a shelf, maybe a piece of artwork or a basket or something. Not much room for more. I do realize that showing y'all painted walls is like Boring with a capital B, but I just thought it was too cute.
