Trucking along here. We didn’t get as much snow as predicted from the last storm since it moved farther east, thank goodness. However, we are supposed to get another 3-6 inches tonight. Yippee….not.
This mornings breakfast:
Halfway through breakfast and Pixie was very insistent for a lap. She has been the radiator queen lately and less on the lap, so I don’t know what made her that way today.
I was eating with one hand after this. I hate to say it, but there just isn’t room for her since she is a big kitty, but we work around it because we spoil her. She was very content being like this until I went to work.
This cold weather is making me snacky. I feel actually stomach rumbly hungry, but it seems I shouldn’t be when I tally my calories. Kind of annoying. This is some granola I snacked on.
Not sure why I don’t snack on fruit, but it almost seems to cold to eat fruit! Isn’t that weird? Anyway, only 50 days until spring…
On the project front – I finished painting the bedroom:
This color looks more rose in real life and less purple. My phone just alters colors for some reason. I spray painted the old door knob gold just to freshen it up a bit. Our eventual plan is to replace all the hollow core doors in the house, but that is years off for that. For now, just a face lift. And it looks a lot better than this:
Now to work on the headboard for the bed and decorating the room. I love practicing in here now. John also replaced the radiator valve and now the room is much warmer as well. It was stuck shut before and I needed a little heater fan in there when I practiced. Not now! Little by little on the projects.
I started tackling the second trunk. This one had some kind of paper covering that was really water damaged. Usually trunks are covered in canvas, but this had the paper cover:
That came right off and now I am scrubbing the trunk clean.
It’s only partly dry here, which is why the wood is darker in spots. This will get sanded down, stained and waterlox on it. I will also paint the metal trim black and put on new handles. Then re-line the inside. I think it will look pretty when all spiffied up.
We felt like getting out tonight since we have been kind of cooped up lately. Off to dinner at Moes!
Welcome to Moes! 😀
And now to go to my new practice room and work on my guitar!
