Salutation Cottage Fix Friends! I’m in over my head here with Miss Myrtle and the sun porch so please enjoy this lovely garden bouquet while I’m knee deep in paint and brushes and this white swatch or that white swatch. Please just imagine an eighties hit song of your choice arranged as elevator music while I get things together here. I’ll be painting for today, or more realistically a couple days, or say it ain’t so – even longer. Sob!
Unfortunately getting in over my head isn’t a new theme in my life. I’ve acquired quite the track record when in comes to my enthusiasm getting the best of me. Oh, and then there’s the matter of time perception — I’m usually a little off there too. The time I decided to refinish our dining room floors with a four and six year old at home is a perfect example. I allotted for three half days of work while the kids were at school. Roughly two weeks later, and with a helping hand from Mr. Save the Day, we had ourselves the most beautiful time consuming hardwood floors I’d ever seen.
So ladies please enjoy these crepe myrtle blooms while I paint the sun porch brick, by brick, … by brick.
