Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

I've been trying to keep myself busy 
while we waited
for the painter to get his life straightened out.

There has been a lot of waiting with this house building gig.

There will be more waiting
before all is said and done.

I decided to give myself
a little happy patch
to look at while I wait

for topsoil

I'll show you more of it later.

ThE long P.A.I.N.T. wait is over.

Men are working again.

After a pause in progress,
a short delay,
a tense weekend,
and one AWOL painter...

Men are working again.

This is what it is all about.
Men showing up for work.
Men working.
Men taking breaks.

Men wearing work clothes...

Men operating fancy equipment...

Men working together
like a well oiled machine...

Men taking turns working...
rolling here,

rolling there...

spray here,
spray there,
spray everywhere....

These men got the ceilings sprayed,
the walls primed

Ready for.....


Tomorrow the color comes.
I don't know if
I will be able to sleep tonight.

We've been busy selecting
garage doors,
and cabinets,
but nothing will make me as happy as
 seeing the colors go onto the walls.

I'm pretty sure I am going to freak out.
In a good way.

It's all about the color, after all.

Nighty Night...
don't let the bedbugs bite!


  1. Oh, how exciting. Can't wait to see the color go on, too. You are getting closer.

  2. Very pretty little patch, and how exciting to see progress made. Jackie


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
