Post Paint Pick Up

Well, the house is freshly painted in the new Polar Bear color and we are both happy with the way it turned out. And now.  Comes the post paint pick up and put back together part.  Which took the entire weekend. Sunday was rainy so honey-dos were not so painful.  And having the TV going […]

White Paint

Does the advent of Labor Day usher in pumpkin season?  Judging by the fact that three grocery stores we visited were out of pumpkin, I think I might be behind the eight ball already. DF Evon finally found some when she was out and picked up a couple of cans for me so I could […]
