happy spring world!
these next few days will bring lots of rain
which i'm wishing will aid in the green department.
it is rather beautiful nonetheless.

or as the Leprechaun likes to call him...
he has stolen my heart.
his marvelous caramel amber eyes look at me through the back window and i can't help but give him a snuggle. he is naughty though. he wants to escape. even with this big yard he yearns to be free. maybe if i give him enough cheerios he'll be tempted to stay.
this week's project includes de-wallpapering.
it takes much longer than i anticipated.
prep area
moisten paper
let sit
pull off paper
moisten second paper
let sit
pull of paper
clean wall
continue again and again
clean up your mess
sit on the couch and wonder over the three yards space you just completed...then feel discouraged by the other ten walls that need to be done...make yourself feel better by going into the kitchen to get a handful of swedish fish. ahhh, that's better.

you know you're country when your children
play freely in the backyard in their skivvies.

Taking down wallpaper does get discouraging. Hang in there. I wish I could come up and help. That would be so much fun. We could cruize on the wallpaper and listen to your wonderful tunes.

Ditto Jennifer. And my painting offer still stands.
