I had to go buy some paint as the place above the stairs took so much paint. While I was waiting for them to mix my paint, I stood and watched people. I still really enjoy watching people.
When my paint was finally ready, I took my basket and was lifting the paint cans into my basket. A young man and his wife were standing there and he jumped over to where I was and said, " Here let me do that for you." I laughed and said okay, and he said, " Are you painting? You have paint on your elbow." I said "yes, and we needed more paint." He wanted to know, what on earth were we painting to need so much paint. I told him, and then it dawned on me, no wonder I am so tired, I have never painted this much in my whole life. It is a huge project. I keep getting mad at myself because I can't paint as much as I did when I was 20 but then at 20 our house was so much smaller. So there is the rub. Upstairs doesn't look that big, until you are trying to paint it all. It looks very fresh and clean and bright. I am so over yellow now. The color was Sunshine white, which is really a light yellow color.
The parrots have been flying over in flocks. I am afraid I am a big disappointment to the parrots. Not a single sunflower to be seen this year. One was in the tree squawking at me yesterday. Too bad I don't know parrot. I could have told him it was a painting year and not a gardening year.
Its been nice chatting with you. I hope you have a lovely week planned. June is such a pretty month.
Thank you for stopping by today.
