Our Spring Break is now over…I’m sending the kids off to school as
we speak I type. All in all it was a wonderful week with kids home, being with both families, Holy Week services, multiple egg hunts and painting the hallway. Ever the optimist, I began what I thought would be a fairly simple project: to paint our hallway downstairs and if all went well, to continue it up the staircase and down the upstairs hallway. My eldest wanted to help, so I thought…piece of cake!
We bought the thickest paint from Lowes, what they say is their primer/paint combination that allows for a one-coat application. Cosmic Cream sounded and looked like just what I wanted. I knew, from having painted other rooms in our home, that it would probably need two coats. As the week wore on, and my helper wasn’t able to help with the second coat, it became evident that a probable third coat would be needed. And that’s where it sits… I’m not a fan of unfinished projects.
So. I’m thinking today is the day to put on the final coat of paint. That is, if LIFE will allow. But getting back into my weekly work/family routine doesn’t allow for lengthy spans of time. We shall see. I sat down at the kitchen-end of the hall to draw the above and then painted “the walls” with the Valspar Cosmic Cream paint. My sketch just might be more finished than the walls will be. Oi!
P.S. This is the stuff of the FEAST…ordinary, slightly boring, not-yet-finished LIFE. I hope you have a FEAST-FUL week! And a chance or two to draw it!
