i spent the day mostly painting, and now the living room is a lovely creamy shade of cafe au lait called malton. there's a few spots that need touching up and the trim and ceiling need touching up too, but both main rooms of the house are, for the most part, painted.
i have an idea of a floorplan for the furniture, too, and tomorrow, after the touching up is done, i'll be able to start moving things into place. on sunday, my sister is coming to go through my grandmother's furniture in storage and to take the pieces she'd like. i'm hoping i can get the stuff i want moved over here by the end of the month. it'll be nice to have a piano again.
meg's much better, too... thank you to all who sent me well-wishes and remedies. i'll have to check into feverfew tea. i bet i know someone who either has such a thing, or can obtain it. :)
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
