That was my first thought when I opened my eyes and saw snowflakes passing by the window. There were fat flakes and tiny flakes. Some dropped quickly. Others floated lazily to the ground. They all melted as soon as they touched any soaked surface. It's 36 degrees.
I'm planning to work inside today. As soon as the house warms up from the overnight drop that happens as the wood fire burns down, I'll be painting again. I will finish painting the kitchen today. I mean it. Seriously. Or something like that.
It's snowing again. Ugh.
10:54am - The wall behind the fridge has one coat of paint on it. I also scrubbed the floor again. That smell is back. It's nasty, like a combination of feet and garlic. I have no clue what causes it, but I'm thinking it's the glue they used to attach the original floor coverings. It's horrible.
I've also put a third coat of paint on the beadboard on each side of the stove. I'm going to move on to the small room off the kitchen. I've got some plaster work to fix this morning and will hopefully sand it later this evening once the kitchen paint is dry. If the sun comes out, I need to split some firewood. So the kitchen may go on hold, again.
It continued to snow for over an hour this morning. No accumulation as it's 37 degrees. The sun came out for two seconds at one point. It was beautiful with the falling snow.
I'm longing for summertime.
1:02pm - The kitchen paint is done. At least until I install the countertops and have to touch up every wall. I can't wait to get the small room finished, too. I did get up the old vinyl floor. Its paper backing did not come up. That's fine. I'm going to have to install tile over this part anyway. So I'll use the steamer to get as much off the plywood subfloor as possible. The hardwoods under this are nearly ruined from water damage thanks to a leaky door. I can see that in the basement.
I'm really starting to love this green.
There's still plenty left to do:
backsplash behind stove
and many tiny details, including an over the range microwave and dishwasher.
It's 39 degrees outside. I need to get some wood split.
