Back to Work

It’s been months since I blogged, but not because I haven’t been working. Job Number One: Rest up from the craziness of the past few months. So we have been resting: watching movies, puttering about, etc.

Job Number Two: Paint light fixture to put in the dining room. I got this fixture from my mom and want to replace the old brass fixture in the dining room with it.


I plan to paint the dining room fixture and hang it in the entryway (which currently has a broken ceiling fan; why would you put a ceiling fan in the entryway?)


It took me three weekends to paint the dining room fixture: consider eight sides with metal, twisted braids — I had to paint from top, bottom, side and every angle in between to ensure all the gold was black.

Now I’m just waiting for it to be hung! Meanwhile, Steve is painting all the trim in our bedroom, and painting the front door red.

This weekend we organized the basement; boxes of stuff to get rid of, boxes of photos and memorabilia to look through (like seven years’ worth of photojournalism pics) and boxes of books that we want to keep, but have no shelves for. Whew.
