I know, I know. I promised to make a concerted effort to write blog entries on a more regular basis. But life does tend to get in the way.
I helped a good friend adopt a rescue potbellied pig today. Well, for her daughter. I always wanted a pig and one of these days I will have one. Just give me time.
And I survived the polar vortex. I wish I could say the same for the kitchen plumbing. One of the pipes in the wall burst, but at least it didn't flood too much before I was able to turn the water off. The water is currently off to the whole house. Why? you ask. The answer is simple: After my fire, the dumbass plumber gave me shut-off valves in the basement for the second kitchen and both bathrooms but none for the main kitchen. Isn't that fucking wonderful?!
Work has begun again on one of my planned secret projects. Can't tell you anything else so you'll just have to cross your legs and hold your breath. All will be revealed in time. I think you will like it. I am hoping for a Spring reveal. So think good thoughts.
I am writing. Slow, but it's progress. And I have a secret project in that arena as well, but I don't want to jinx it so I won't say much about it.
What else can I tell you?
The chair rail, I'm thinking at this point, will be dark brown with some of the rope molding to accent it. I think it will all come together nicely. I'll be sure to post pictures once I pull it all together and you can let me know what you think.
And I've decided I would like to paint my brick house brilliant white with black trim around the windows that will accent the black wrought iron screen doors. I'm also thinking the steel doors will look awesome a deep, dark red. I'll post pictures of that, too, if I can get it done this summer. There's a lot on the list that needs to get done. We'll see.
Okay, I am off to watch the latest episode of Grimm. I love that show. For some reason, all day yesterday I thought it was Friday and, man, was I pissed when Grimm wasn't on.
