Paint & Stain

Filed under: Interstellar Casa,It's Me, Lass — by InterstellarLass @ 7:03 pm

Arrrgh. I spent from 10 am to 6:30 pm staining and painting trim today. And I’m not done. Today’s 80-degree weather and humidity kept the stain tacky. I haven’t put any on since about 3, and as of 7 pm, I still can see the sheen of tacky. More happily though, I’m painting over the ugly brown trim, and my hall looks much brighter, and wider, making me quite pleased. And that’s something these days.


Pop is coming home tonight after three weeks away. Somehow Nick & I managed to get two semi-quiet weekends in, which again, amazes me. I don’t think we’re ready for the chaos to kick back in, but we seem to be tumbling headlong toward it. Fasten seat belts.


Three days until turkey day. And I only have seating for 6. I need 10 more chairs. Anyone have any that fold up and fit in the mail?


  1. Did you say it’s 80 degrees?? I think it’s 42 here.

  3. Ha. Sounds like me at Festivus. I have four chairs a couch and a recliner. And usually 12-14 guests.
