ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 4

Paint day. My son paid me the highest compliment,”looks good”. I thought about standing on a ladder to do the part that my DiL does, but after climbing the first rung of a 6 foot ladder, I thought better of  it. Before I left for Port Townsend, I painted my bedroom in Venice. There I only have a two step kitchen ladder. It worked just fine. There must be something intimidating about a 6 foot ladder,but I couldn’t step beyond the first step. Since we have established that my son is a collector and not a hoarder, I asked if he had an extension for the roller. Of course he did and better yet, he knew where it was. This worked perfectly. I could stand on the deck or on the ground and reach where I had to.Job well done. Now I only have to do a short side and I am finished ..until my DiL and son trace the flowers on the trailer. Then I am back to work. Can’t wait for a finish product.That’s when I will take a picture of it.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
