I'm getting too old for this.....

The reno job is right of schedule thanks to my painting blitz Monday.  In the morning I painted the first coat on the stairwell which my DD1 did not do on Saturday. In the afternoon I painted the entire room and stairwell with a second coat....total hours painting SEVEN.  Hoping I don't see another paint brush or roller any time soon.  Having said that, I need to paint the crown moulding when I pick it up tomorrow, that shouldn't take too long, should it?  Needless to say Tuesday was not a very productive day.
Today my SIL reno man came to cut the trim and install the lights.  Me, I was in my sewing room for most of the afternoon, working on a blue and white quilt for my DD2. (Can't post photo's as desk top is the only computer I can download pictures on, it is unpluged at the present time). It was so nice to sit at the machine with the sunshine pouring in the window, feeling energized now, ready to get at it again tomorrow. 

The carpet is being laid next week, so we are on the home stretch, my plan was to have everything  completed by the end of February and by the looks of it, we should be done long before that.

Then the Spring cleaning will have to start, womans work is never done.  LOL

Oh you are so right. A woman's work is never done. Sounds like you have been a VERY busy woman!

Painting is hard work. I'm sure that sewing yesterday was a great rest. Keep on and you'll be done before you know it. Can't wait to see pictures. Lane
