Thursday 13

Today is the 100th edition of the T-13.
I was supposed to link to my favorite TT's...

Alas, I did not do that. I don't have time for that. I am a busy woman with two children at summer camp. :-)


Thirteen Things LadyBug Is Thinking About Today


1. I went to my favorite store - IKEA - yesterday. I got a few little lovelies, but nothing overly dramatic -- Unless you consider a duster thing exciting...

2. On the way home, Mr. picked up some spackle so that we could repair the walls that the wallpaper ruined. It is wicked cool! It goes on pink - HOT pink - and turns white when it is ready to be sanded.

3. My new camera is arriving today via UPS.

4. I got up at 6 this morning and put the first coat of paint on the window and door trim. Did I mention that I hate to paint trim...

5. Mr. and I have a band meeting tonight. This is when they tell us the jobs we signed up for at the drum and bugle competition are the worst jobs and no we can't switch... (Yes, I am paranoid.)

6. While I was painting this morning, I realized that I haven't finished the scrapbook and I have to have it done by next week when we go to Montreal to see family...

7. One should not think while one paints. One should just paint.

8. I have to give the baseboard trim a coat of paint, but I need to tape the floor first.

9. I paint funny. I give the trim a coat of paint first. Then I do the 2 coats on the walls. Then I give the trim it's final coat.

10. I can't wait to see what the walls look like. I have two shades of one color for the top and bottom of the walls. The color? Oh... it's Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige.

11. The bottom is the full fledged color and the top is half strength. The trim color is White Dove. It's lovely...

12. I know it's lovely because I have it all over me...

13. If you don't have anything better to do today, come on over. You can help or you can watch and keep me company. Your choice.

ah painting, so much fun! Not really! But I must admit I have had to do things that were much worse than painting!

Haven't been to IKEA in a long time because first I have to find room for all the goodies I am certain to find there!
What kind of camera are you getting? I need one but everytime I go to the store I get (more and more) confused...

You have been busy! I hope you get it all done. I didn't know about the theme for the week until after I had my TT posted. I may try it next week.

With all that painting, you got a lot of non-thinking to do. Just don't forget what trim number you're on. Wouldn't do to do it three/four times.

Jane said...

I'll have my room ready for you to paint just as soon as you finish there! I'm not kidding!!!

Susan said...

Ikea's one of my favorite places!! I hate to paint cause I'm just not good at it. Hoping that things are working out with band meetings, redecorating, and all the other "pots" you have your hands in!!!

HUGS!
