I couldn't believe this idyllic moment. It's almost like the swans were on stage (though I would have asked them to shimmy a bit stage left, LOL). I captured this moment on our walk after going to the movies this weekend. We saw Elysium, which I didn't like at all. It just really, really wasn't a "Jamie" movie. But there were lovely moments afterwards, like these swans on stage and a nice dinner out. We even saw a bunny in this bit of parkland! You just never know what you'll see when you get out for a walk!
This weekend I did another update on Year 2 of Shannon vs The Stuff, although now I think I've realized that I probably should have named this series something else as I'm not versus-ing anything. Oh well, that's what happens when a title can be catchy...you keep using it even fit doesn't quite fit. I have to remember this week to continue the process. I wonder what I'll tackle next.
The first room we are prepping to paint is the laundry room, mostly because the previous owners did such a crappy job, that it would be a hard room to screw up. We started with using TSP to clean all the walls. That took most of yesterday. Today, spackling and maybe even... painting! This is not a fast process and is going to get even slower with Reg returning to work today.
