Baby Steps

I’m a little disappointed, I didn’t get much work done in the bedroom today. I did get the ceiling tiles that were falling tacked up. I’m just going to try to get them temporarily fixed until I can save up to get all the ceiling tiles in the bedrooms and living room replaced. The kitchen is fine. I did purchase a gallon of kilz ceiling tile primer stain blocker today. I had intended on painting the ceiling but as fate would have it, that did not happen. I want to do that before I paint the walls. If I want to get it done, I’ll be spending the day tomorrow getting a crick in my neck from painting over my head and then the walls. According to the weather reports rain and possibly frozen stuff is coming.

The weather prognosticators are saying that we may or may not get snow. It all depends on if everything comes together to make it happen. We will definitely get rain, but will the cold front reach us at the right time to give us that frozen fluff? What ever we get, will be arriving late Saturday and through Sunday. With temperatures being what they are, it doesn’t look as if there will be any real accumulation. Which is fine. Though having enough to walk through and photograph would be nice as well. Either way, if I want that room painted, I need to get it done tomorrow or it will be a wait until the weather calms down again.

One of the reasons I didn’t get to paint, my mother needed to go to the store to pick up a couple of things. I know now that when she says that, we will be there a while and a couple things, is half a buggy. She had a list. She doesn’t always…she never has everything on her list. There is also the fact that she writes her list as she remembers the items she needs. This means we are circling the store unless I take the list and skip around trying to shop in the order the items are in the store. Still, she got what she needed and what she wanted with the exception of one type cookie that dad likes. I got her home, got all her items inside and headed for home.

I changed in preparation to paint. As I said, I did get a little done, but not much as I also had to cook. Mom and dad and I, were happy with what I prepared. My son when he came in ate some, but it wasn’t enough. He ended up preparing a frozen pizza after I assured him it wouldn’t upset me.After a hard day at work, what he had eaten of what I had prepared didn’t ease his hunger. That pizza ought to though.

Sitting here now, I could be upset over the fact that I didn’t get what I wanted to accomplished. I could rag myself over the failure to complete this project. I have plenty of time. There is no real rush. I did some work. I took at least some steps forward. Even if I hadn’t, its still okay because I accomplished other things.

On top of that, the day ended with an amazing sunset. Outside, the night critters are singing, the evening still comfortable, and I am sitting here enjoying a cup of hot tea, knowing, this has been a good day. Taking those baby steps forward.
