I'm just plain 'ol thankful tonight. I've mentioned that the inside of our home is getting a fresh coat of paint. First time in 16 years. I touch up scuffs all the time, but it needed a new layer of goo!
It has been pretty painful to have the house in utter chaos! Like moving only worse I think. The painting part is going smoothly. The painters are moving right along.
I started at 7:30 this morning and it is 11:00 p.m. and I'm at a stopping place. Since I don't spring clean because I start taking care of the yard in the spring I always do fall deep cleaning. I had waited until they could paint so that I can clean and put back all at one time. Whew. I'm pooped!
The painters have finished 2 dressing areas, two bedrooms, the sun room, reading nook, and the basement. I have the two dressing areas, two bedrooms and sun room cleaned and back in order. I will tackle the reading nook and basement tomorrow. The painters will be back Friday and I'm suppose to empty the master bath and bedroom so they can get them done. Then we will have the 20 foot ceiling/living area, dining, kitchen, study, laundry room and garage left to do. We are getting close to being halfway there!!!
I have a cold or allergies to paint smell!!! ;o)
No matter I am very thankful for our home and the work it takes to keep it up. I'm thankful for so many little things, too. You know like windows to see out of, a ladder, hammer, picture hooks and things like that!
I love how lemon oil refreshes things like vinyl and wood. That is how Jesus is. When we are in a relationship with him we soak him in and we are refreshed...even have a little glow about us!!!
Now, I'm really thankful for HIM!!!
Wow, I love my Fresh Find today. great handbag...lovely color choices!
