A Kitchen, Turkey Trot, and Birthday Post

There’s been a lot going on in the kitchen but I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to write up a post about it!  Lawrence was out of town last week, so I took that opportunity to do some painting and work on clearing out the backyard.  Once he got back, we had…

Choosing Paint Color aka Torture for the Indecisive

It’s been a whirlwind of a week!  I’ve been doing a lot of painting and will post pictures of that soon.  I’ve been waiting to post pictures until something interesting happened, but right now the work I’m doing is pretty slow and tedious and the before and after pictures aren’t that impressive.  But like I…

Halloween 2013 and I’m no spring chicken!
