At least the astilbe looked good this year

Well as usual I haven’t gotten done what I set out to do this year. Stuff and things have gotten in the way again.

But hey the astilbe looked good.

Painting the town

I am off to the schoolhouse and whilst I am away the living room and dining room are getting a fresh coat of paint.

A pleasant surprise will await me while I work at gardening and cleaning for the next few days at the schoolhouse. We’ve got a few irons in the fire for the next few weeks so hopefully we will be able to tick a few things off the old list.

I will be happy to see that flat eggshell I have been scuffing and swearing at since we moved in. The previous owners painted it flat and then their children promptly began marking it up. Though we have done our share.

So long eggshell!
