Paint, painting and painted!

Goodmorning everybody!

I will try to make a short post, cause I have to finish some work I started yesterday.
An overview of our last two days?
Mondya it was lovely weather, again. And yes, I did visit the DIY store and found some paint for the kitchen. Oh my, you get nuts, walking along all the shelves with all kind of different maints, from all different brands! I took me a bit of time, to find what I wanted, and I definately have to go back again for some more, but first to be done was the kitchen.
That was for the next day.
At dinner time we did have our second barbecue, and it was yummie and so nice and even a bit cosy LOL.
Yesterday we both got busy, oh yeah!
Jan started painting the woodwork of the little shed and I started with the kitchen walls.
afyter done a coat, it showed that it ded need another one. And I was already happy that I got a coat done, ROFL.
Well, the paint needed to dry for about two hours, so I was glad to have a break. Surely needed it, I am not used anymore to this kind of work. Oh, where is the energy gone? Well, energy is still there, in the mind, but execution of it is a different thing. Then you notice you aren;t into your 40's anymore, damned!
After the break I pulled myself up and started with the second coat. Couldn;t finish it all, just was a bit too pooped out, so today I will finish it. And I will feel good having it done, and it sure looks better and fresh now.
Next job will be painting the wood work from kitchen and hallway and probably in the rooms too. Yeah, that not a little task, but first I;'ll have to really clean the wook, so the new coat of paint will stick well. I think Jan will finish the last bits of the shed.
So you see, lots of activity around here at the moment. And then tomorrow the house will cry for some attention, LOL.
So quickly on to the freebie, don;t you think?
Kit for today is "Sentimental Journey", made it into two downloads.
Accompanied by some sweet clusters from Arlene.
You have a fantastic day!

Oh my, you are a busy bee! Painting can be fun, but I agree it is a lot of work. Especially as we get a bit older. Take your time, and it will all come out quite nice. Be sure to take some photos when you're finished. It's a nice feeling when you get done and everything looks so nice and fresh. I have a busy day too, so gotta get with it. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna b.
