Taking Steps

A routine day.  I clean defined rooms on certain days and was a day behind so had to clean bathrooms and kitchen today.  But,  no problem, by noon it was done.  Breaking it up into days makes it so much more easy!

I cleared the shelving unit in the living room that I want to renovate.  It just took lots of newspaper to wrap the Depression Glass that was stored there.  Here it is cleared tonight.

I need to buy Spackling compound tomorrow and use it to fill the voids in the dry wall.  Then figure out what to do with the shelves and color of walls.

I cooked a new vegetarian meal tonight.  Although it took over 90 minutes to make, it was just okay.  Sigh.  Healthy, but just okay.  Sigh.  Life goes on.

I did work a bit on the Allie portrait tonight.  She laid on the counter beside me (on the colored pencil collection, making it difficult to choose pencils).  She did not fuss so she must approve of progress so far.
