When I Paint My Masterpiece

Forgive us readers, for we have sinned. It has been at least a week since our last entry.

In that time, we have shifted into our new house and had the carpet cleaned as we mentioned.

Well, we really don't like the color of the carpet. It is a dark blue and the walls are a dark green. The house looks dark. We decided to live with it until summer and then get a lighter carpet.

Carpets make the house quieter and warmer in winter.

Time flies....The next morning, I was pulling up all the freshly cleaned carpet.

The beauty part is that beneath the rug is beautiful solid Rimu wood. So now we have a home with all solid wood floors...and a billion carpet tacks.

2 days later, 4 huge blisters, and the floors are smooth.

But they need to be sanded and polished. If we are ever going to paint the walls , we should do that before the floors are sanded, right?

The painter is here now, Kimberly picked our colors, the sander comes next week, the barge with the furniture follows.

Plus, Kimberly got a job at the hospital and I got a second job doing internet research.

We came here for peace and quiet, but the merry-go-round ain't stopping just yet.
