Got the front entryway painted, despite all the heat!
Before--drab and boring white:
done the crown molding throughout the room yet, that'll come after the
rest of the living room walls are painted. I may end up taking down the
crown molding, stripping it, painting it and rehanging it, depending on
how ambitious I get. The previous owners slopped all kinds of acoustic
ceiling bits on it, plus a ton of paint drips, and applied paint so
thickly that it obscures part of the detailing in the wood. The molding
at LEAST needs to have the gunk scraped off.
repairing the back yard fencing so the chickens can safely be allowed to
roam the yard. We still have a few spots to finish before it's ready,
but it's about 85% there! I'll feel so much better when they have more
room and can settle into a more normal routine...also we need to
incorporate the chicks into the flock.
Also, we had a HUGE fish
fly spend one of the hottest days on our front window screen, he camped
there till dark then went on his way.
was very pretty, I love the grid design on his wings, that ISN'T the
screen showing through! I told him he was darned brave to be hanging
out at a chicken owner's house...
