Can you hear that?

Listen really close, can you hear that? I can't either, it's called quiet at this house once again. I love those twerps to pieces but the best thing about grandchildren is you can eventually send them home. Not for too long, I'll be ready for them to visit again by..... let's say Thursday!

If I ever get a hair up my butt to paint this table and chairs again someone please pull me back to reality and tell me how stupid I am. I have painted so many spindals in the last couple weeks that I will burn this set before I paint it again. The yellow and orange/red have 3 coats and could use a 4th and I still need to do the clearcoat. Of course I love the look instead of this... I was going to be sassy and paint all the chairs the green color from the picture on the back wall but I decided to coordinate instead of sass...... hummmmm maybe I will paint one more time, I already forgot the pain.


For right now I have the table runner and the beads on the vase in the sassy green. The breakfast nook has the bottom board in place and the columns are started. With this nice weather we'll be staining windows and trim in our sleep. My goal is to be finished by Adam's graduation party. Why is it that us girls think everything has to be done by a certain party you are having at your house.....

It's looking great Connie. Keep up the good work. You are giving me inspiration to start doing some things I have wanted for a couple of months but have been too busy. Unfortunately, my leg isn't allowing much like that. Can't wait to see it all done.

I love the colors, Glad you went with them instead of the green. We always do the "finish it by the party" thing too. What's up with that?

"Finish it by the Party" gives us a goal. Do we always accomplish our goals? Not I. But I've learned thats OK.
