It took us the majority of the day, but Chyann and I got her room painted.
It's Chesapeake blue.
Looks more like a Caribbean blue to me though.
The ceiling was the worst.
No idea when the popcorn ceiling was put on, I only know that shit is dry and it soaked up paint like a sponge in some areas and flaked popcorn in others as I applied the paint.
Which led to us having to put numerous coats on and it still does not look great.
Apparently I should have sprayed the paint on?
Didn't even think of that as I've never encountered this type of problem while painting before.
Live and learn.
The guys split wood yesterday since it was soo cool - got to start thinking about winter sometime I suppose.
Holy burr tooooo -
We only made it to a whopping 60*!
Speaking of burr's, the horses were out mowing and found a patch of burrs.
Now that is going to be a pain to comb/cut out.
These horses drove me nuts yesterday too.
Usually they will just meander from front yard to the back then up to get a drink of water and repeat all day.
No problem, right?
Yesterday they were everywhere they weren't supposed to be.
Scotch somehow (who left the barn door open?!?!) got into the barn and knocked the lid off the dog food bin and gorged on kibbles and bits.
Gypsy got into the alfalfa and ate who knows how much.
Casper went into the field next door and then decided to not come home.
Jenny got a gouge in her side about four inches long.
AAAH, the joy of owning horses.
These kids are staying in the pen today.
I don't feel like chasing them, I've got pickles to make.
My favorite part of the day was Krissy.
She came for dinner and we had the best time.
I'm going to miss her.
She is going back home to Alaska next week and may or may not return.
Funny the twists and turns of life.
Sure we didn't talk every day or even see each other as often as we'd have liked recently, but I always knew she was there and if I needed her she was but a phone call away (and just down the road).
I'm hoping she'll get back into blogging so we can keep up with this new chapter in her life.
Feeling blue, Chesapeake blue.
