The kitchen painting project made progress last night. I finished the first coat above the cupboards. Tonight I should finish it all and put things back where they belong. It is always difficult to paint when you're living in the space. I really don't like to move everything out of its place and then leave it there for days (that feel like years) while the paints dries. I really like the color Sherrie chose. It is a real update to the kitchen, and house as a whole. I have to admit that I feel my age more and more with these labor intensive projects. Up and down on the ladder, standing on the countertops, balancing and reaching are more tiring than they used to be (whine whine). Well, the good thing about putting all this work into this house is that I am more likely to stay in it because I don't think I have it in me to take on another large project. I was thinking last night about how I basically completed the Oregon house project in a year. That project involved significantly more work than this house. I really don't know how I did it. After painting for a couple of hours (it was really probably only an hour but it felt like more) I had to sit on the couch and recover. Tonight I will finish it up and take a couple days reprieve before I tackle the next big project (tiling the laundry room floor-which will lead to painting and building new cabinets, etc.).

I really like the color; it reminds me of coffee with lots of cream. Kind of a mocha color. Pretty!
