In and Out of the Closet

  I have a temporary job for as long as it takes me to finish (within reason), and a very flexible timeline. I'm doing some painting. Interestingly enough, I was painting for this same person when this blog began 12+ years ago. See link below.

I wrote about that on day 5 of My Quality Day. I'm going to assume this is not a bookend phenomenon, and that there are more than five days remaining for this blog.

Today, I primed a closet. closet door

And got the edges cut in with primer on the bedroom attached to the closet. Also got most of the ceiling primed. room being painted

As was also true twelve years ago, I'm very grateful for this job right now. The dearth of events at which to sell books has put my finances in a tailspin. This will help a lot! I don't mind working, but it's really hard to find someone who will hire you when you are 72.

And the sunset was gorgeous. I'll bet it was spectacular at the beach. Oddly enough, this appears to be the first March sunset I've ever put on the blog. sunset

In other news: I got groceries on the way home from the job, and I hope to do a little editing yet tonight. Tomorrow, I'm busy all day, but I'll be painting again on Wednesday.

Well I certainly hope that there are more than 5 days left for this blog.
Painting is a job I really hate. I've been wanting to paint a few rooms around here but I can't get myself to do it.

Lulu: "Dada says there are many rooms here that could use a paint job, but that aren't going to be getting one."
Charlee: "We're sure you'll still be here blogging long after five days have gone by!"

Well, I could use you here if you are willing to paint! We are painting our bedroom this weekend. I don't mind painting--it has such a great outcome. Although my body doesn't like it very much the next day.

Ann- trade some painting for a free "motel" on some trip?

Lulu- that would be a long commute for me to help you.

Lin- If we can ever coordinate a visit, that might work.
