saturday was a glorious day to carry out 'nothing' - because it was doing this:
|ps. I'm sorry to my SF friends. I have been praying for this kind of thing.|
Not really a problem, except that i was in the middle of this:
which caused this:
all of which led to a glorious day of making rhubarb bread, reading and napping. my version of perfect 'nothing.'
sunday the plan was to do more of the same. however, while sitting in the sunroom admiring the pretty view:
i got the idea to paint the sunroom ceiling yellow (this thought has been rolling around in my head for quite awhile).
so after church, i went to ace hardware, got some supplies and started doing this:
|notice the wrong color at the lower left. yellow is tricky.|
then something got into my brain, and i started doing this, just to see what was under there:
before you know it, i was staring at this:
actually, the conversation in my head went something like "ohmgosh" this is hard to do. maybe i can get anne to help me. or some boys. (which says a lot about anne that i thought of her first).
i seriously laughed at myself as i inched the carpet up. it was HARD work. i have not been that sweaty since i used to run marathons, people. i finally got the brilliant idea to cut the carpet into chunks. i also think i got stronger as time went on. that's because willpower is actual POWER.
anyway, when I got to this part, i was kind of incredulous:
because seriously, NOW what the heck am i going to do?!?
sigh. i guess i'm not very good at 'nothing' weekends :)
ps. i also have another project waiting in the wings. stay tuned.
