Let there be light...


Ta da! It actually works.

I don't have much to report tonight, but I did want to finish that light fixture story. Getting it hung only required one additional trip to the hardware store. The other big job finished is that yellow paint in the kitchen, which made the white trim look dirty and tired, which led to repainting it as well. But it is done. All done.

Another  busy weekend at the old house. It was nice to put my feet up and loll in front of the TV last night. While I watched I cut more squares and circles for more trees.


We watched the new AMC series called The Killing. Loved the two-part premiere. It's set in Seattle, which looks darker and rainier than I've ever seen it in real life, but that just adds to the gritty suspense. I hope it proves to be as good as Breaking Bad and Mad Men, the two best shows on TV in my humble opinion. AMC is on a roll.

  2. See that's the thing about painting, once started it is like a virus! I like mindless hand work in front of the TV!

  3. For me "lolling in front of the tv" doesn't include cutting out patches for quilts. My lazy boy recliner is too conducive to just lazing in front of the tv. You really need to be commended for getting all that work done - painting and fixing. I'm sure it will be of great re-sale value if you ever have to look for a buyer.

  5. I also watched "The Killing" on AMC and thought it was wonderful. So much like Copenhagen. Does it really rain that much? We had cold rain yesterday and today but are promised some sun tomorrow.

    I set the TiVo to record the first season of Breaking Bad to see if I like it as much I as I enjoyed Mad Men and Rubicon (which was replaced with Zombies).

  6. The fixture turned out great. My girlfriend just told me about the killing tonight. I will be sure to watch it when it is on next time.
