Playing Home Owner Today

I've been playing home owner all day today. Geez... what a dull thing to do.

I painted more in the soon-to-be library. I have just a little touching up to do and very little paint from that gallon left so hopefully it will last until I get through.

I also went and bought the other paint. This is a beige and I'm going to sponge over this funky green and some metallics. The green is called "pianist" and is a kilz brand. I've never used Kilz paint so this will be a good experiment. I have used all sorts of different kinds of paint to see which I like best. I'll add this to my list of things I've tried after this.

I'm eager to see what it looks like so I'm sure I'll do some of it tonight.

I've been outside for the last couple of hours. I washed off the porch, which is no easy feat because I have to move all my rocks to spray under them and then put them all back. Then I sprayed the lawn with this stuff you hook up to the garden hose and it's supposed to kill the weeds and green up the lawn. Well, we'll see. The jury is out on that one. I'll report back.

I did have a bright spot of fun, though. Trish called and asked if I wanted to go to lunch. I had just come downstairs when the phone rang so it was good timing. We were having a wonderful conversation but had to stop because she was going to the high school graduation that was this afternoon.

Well, I'm off to put some funky green on the walls and see what it looks like...
