A Little Paint, Clorox, And Some Fall Color
I decided to do some painting now that Richard is on the road/in the air again. I did the back splash in the kitchen with a semi gloss to make it easier to clean. I also put all my glass canisters in the dishwasher and used bleach under the cabinets -- couldn't believe how dirty it gets under there! I've removed the tape, cleaned the brushes, and put the outlet covers and my appliances back. Feels pretty good to have accomplished this. I'll paint the downstairs bathroom on Saturday because I'll need help moving the toilet. Any takers?? George says he has a 'commitment'. I think he probably doesn't want to drive the nine hours to get here to move my toilet. Imagine that!! :)
Last night the two of the trees in our yard finally changed color -- totally; the rest are leafless. I guess it just doesn't take much to amaze me.
I still have a few annuals and my herbs blooming. I'm hoping the herbs hold until Thanksgiving.
