So we’ve painted three rooms in the house. Getting rid of the hideous lime-green feature wall in my bedroom and covering up a nightmarish dark pink in the third bedroom. By far the easiest room to re-paint was my daughter’s. It’s crime was to be a dark magnolia in a room that needed lighter walls to help it seem bigger and more open.
I have begun working in earnest on my book. Chapter three and counting. It actually sounds more impressive than it actually is. The chapters are a bit on the short side, but, I will be adding to them as time goes by. The important thing is that I am writing a lot. Remembering things that I am afraid I will forget if I am not careful.
I am now sipping a coffee and since the rain has finally stopped and the sun has come out nice and strong, I am waiting for the grass to dry a bit so I can mow the lawn and trim the garden up. I also need to clean the downstairs and make lasagne. The lasagne making will take time because I’ve forgotten the recipe.
I always make any pasta dish using an American recipe. The English versions of Italian dishes are a little gruesome. They insist on filling out everything with a disgusting white sauce. In lasagne, instead of using ricotta and parmesan cheese they infuse it with this sauce. It is revolting.
Sorry, I just realised that I went of on a short tangent there. Let’s see, where was I? Oh, my slow Sunday list. I need to go up in the attic and put some more things away. I also need to bring a few things down. But chiefly, I need to put the giant air mattress up and get it off the third bedroom floor where it has sat like a rejected suitor all forlorn and in the way.
I’ve also just spent the last hour e-mailing myself pictures from my Blackberry. My daughter helpfully took before and after pictures of the rooms we painted. I, however, cannot find the usb attachment to transfer the pictures from my phone to my laptop. I then had the brilliant idea of emailing them to myself.
Of course that involved finding the damn things on the phone and then realising that somehow or other we managed to lose the lime green wall picture. On top of all that, the pictures had to be sent one at a time. All so I could include one picture of the ‘pink room’ in its before state and none of the end results.
I need to do a ‘pick-up’ video for one of my YouTube channels and I’d like to do another film review on my blog. Which of course brings me back to writing, which I’d also like to do more of today. So my slow Sunday is looking more like a busy Sunday. On top of everything else, I also need another shower because I discovered a bit earlier that yesterday I got some paint in some very interesting places.
How on earth did I get paint there?
