My right arm is half dead, but I press on. We’ve been painting steadily since closing on the house Thursday, but so many of the walls were trashy that I couldn’t not paint them. I let the boys pick their colors (with my final approval) and I finished their rooms yesterday.
My nature lover, Jeremy, picked green. Very green. I’m rolling with it.
Jack wanted some sort of blue, though the shade kept changing every time we went to Home Depot. So I settled on the shade and had some fun with painter’s tape.
The master bedroom is almost finished and I’ll start on the library today. More painting! (Just wait until you see Chuck’s den. He’s been painting too.)
Saturday night was a lovely evening since the heat wave broke to a breezy 65 degrees. I went out to the front porch to feel the night air and took this picture of the entryway. I just love this house so much.
We closed on the house Thursday and heavy rain started later that afternoon. It was dark and scary, which seemed very inconvenient for us.
But then it passed and the most beautiful double rainbow appeared. I pulled off the road to grab a snapshot because I don’t ever want to forget this lovely image.
Let’s get started!
Gosh, just typing that made me tired. Here we go again.
I’m most happy to say we are not leaving east Tennessee. We’re barely changing zip codes. We found a perfect house 11 miles down the road and have been eager to get our hands on it. It’s a foreclosure (read: lots and lots and lots of work to do) but we got a good deal with a great interest rate. The state of the house is marginal, but we are lovingly calling it “2,700 square feet of potential.”
Here is Captain Rex making his way inside on Inspection Day.
Posts might be few in the next couple of weeks, but you understand. We close in a week and packing is underway. Is it just me or haven’t I done this before?
