Long Winter .... Red Wall

It's been a long winter. A > > > R E A L L Y long winter. This was my fifteenth winter in Wyoming and it's physically and psychologically worn me thin, both literally and figuratively. I've lost some weight, not really intending to but happy that it happened. I have been holding off buying any new clothing that fits me somewhat better. Once shorts season is here I won't care that my pants are dragging on the hem because they no long fit around my waist. I'm at the end, nearly, of April and I'm only in my second day of wearing shorts. I want to work in the yard, shake away the winter blahs, but now I hear that there may be snow again tomorrow. Bleh...

Otherwise, I'm about trying to finish up/use up/polish up a few things in my little world. I went rooting around in the cupboards the day before yesterday and found some paint. It's paint I purchased BEFORE Charlie was born. It's red. Ruby Slippers is the name assigned and I don't know if I bought it for the name or the color. Regardless, it was time for some heroic shaking of the quart, to put into service my favorite paint brush that I purchased 2 years ago, dampen some paper towels and ready an empty egg carton. I brushed and mini-roller'd my way to a red kitchen wall. And, it is R*E*D and goes right along with the red battleship linoleum floor from 1959 that we still are walking on each and everyday. All in all, an inexpensive project to drag out my home engineer persona and shake up a little room that I spend a lot of time in each day. Better red than dead!

So, when you come to visit, be ready to pose for a picture in front of the red wall...
