i've managed to fritter away a lot of the day...i got a lot of heave-ho done, but then got lost in an ongoing research project...it seems that i get close close close to an end point, and then take a left turn down another interesting possibility. this will be the project that never ends, i suspect. there must be something in the air, as far as the clutter clearing - i know of 3 other friends that are doing major digs right now. i'm at the point where i just want it done. i want to paint and re-purpose spaces and change things around and do whatever the trendy word is for redecorating. husband is heading out on a sailing adventure, and i have plans for the house while he's away. the last time i did this, though, it was a bit of a disaster - his daughter & i painted the kitchen red. i can't revisit the horror entirely, due to intervention necessity, but let me say that red is the hardest color paint to cover. ever. including 2 or more coats of primer. so don't paint red. this time, having learned the hard way, i'm just having the bubble thing fixed, and maybe freshen up the livingroom a bit, paint-wise. similar color but brighter and, well, fresher. the taupe we have in there is 11 years old already, and has turned that peachy sort of color that i despise. and there is no color that i like for 11 years, so i'll find something. maybe be wild and do beige. don't get me started. my hairdresser is gutting her house and re-doing it with reclaimed metal stuff and crusty things. i hope my roots grow fast so i can get my decorating-with-metal fix from her. she's a fantastic artist. her shop is an amazing masterpiece called Miracles, in Fayetteville NY. go there. trust me. if you come in for the show, we'll take a car out there. she's open 7 days, which shocked me. usually only mall places are open 7 days. but these are all Master stylists and estheticians. i had a pedi and a root cover today. took diva for a walk and kept smelling chocolate. my legs. chocolate mint. i could just lick my legs, if i could reach. ok going places now, so i'd better say bye.
