Patches, Chickens, Shelves And Lots Of Thens

This morning started out with me getting things ready to paint some of the walls in the house. I got the drop cloth (plastic) folded and laid out in the hall, got the step ladder and even found the right paint and brush.

Then I got sidetracked into doing laundry and ironing patches on my jeans.

Then I gave the chickens some cabbage treats.

Then I cleaned up my work area that was full of my tools and stuff and put it away in the plastic roll around cabinet. I talked Kristine out of the cabinet.

Then I rummaged around in the storage place and found two shelves that my Dad built for Dolores. One was coming apart and I had to spend some time putting it back together and attaching two backing boards to stabilize it and straighten the frame.

Then I gave the fixed up shelf a coat of the paint I used for the kitchen cabinets. The plan is to put one of the shelves in the kitchen to hold cups and glasses. The other shelf will go in the green bedroom. Works out great since it is already green.

I never did get back to painting the wall. First thing tomorrow after breakfast I will start painting the wall. No more diversions. I hope.

I am so very far behind reading blogs and making comments. I'm just too tired after I post and just want to go to bed. Sleep, I need sleep. I want to get all this painting finished before the weather turns.

Well at least lots of other jobs got done! Hope you get some sleep or you will never have any energy left to paint! xxx

It is a busy time of year...and blogging is low on everyones list. I am easily sidetracked at times, I can find so many things to change my mind and head in a different direction.

I want a dose of your vitamins! I can't seem to get any thing done while you are working up a storm.

I think that is called procrastinating.

Hi Callie ~ I do that often too , get sidetracked and don't finish my started project.
But , at least you got a few other things accomplished , that's great.
The chickens look like they're enjoying their treats.

~ Many Blessings ~

Hehe. I always end up helping my hubby with the yard work instead of painting because, as I tell him, the results are quicker in coming and it makes me feel better.


Don't worry about us. Take care of yourself. :)

You better be tough when you go into retirement. There is just not enough time in the day. The good part is, I do what I want. You have been really busy.

Oh, you have been very busy and deserve to go to bed. I have days like that when I seem to be always getting distracted.

Seeing all that you do keeps me motivated to do more around my place.
Ugh, I have all the paint to do the inside of my house but get side tracked with other projects too.
