Sunny and warm
Late to the blog today. I spent all day painting the West Wall. I’m waiting for the second coat of color to dry now, and then I’ll do the baseboards. It was arduous, to say the least. Especially since the cracks ate paste, spackle and caulk – I think I may have fixed apartments three across through that one crack. I’d fill it; it would disappear. I’d fill it; it would disappear.
However, the entire room both looks and feels much lighter. Once the trim is done and I can start moving things back – well, let’s just say there’s plenty to be packed or purged.
Diana – thanks for the information on the essays. I’ll be sure to pick up those volumes.
Another meeting regarding The Situation. Just sick of the whole thing.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I think, I hope, I’ll get in to the city early enough to do something really fun before I head to the theatre.
It’s kept me going for the past few days, let me tell you.
Tired and sore, but glad that West Wall is almost done. I’ll do the bathroom next weekend, and then the apartment is done!
That will open the door to the next home improvement step.
I started, on yesterday’s SDR blog entry, a series of writing exercises over the next few weeks. I hope people will hop on and do them with me.
Yesterday, I found my relevant article right away. Today, I’ve been through the newspaper three times with no luck. So I’m back to try number 4.
