It’s been a productive weekend, and much painting has been done. I’m about 3/4 done with this project, but there are a few lessons I’ve had to relearn since the last time I painted.
First lesson, remember to dust dark corners so that I don’t get wooly boogers on my paint brush. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, a wooly booger is just a clump of fluffy dust that gathers in dark corners, or on undersides of things. It’s a terrible thing to be painting along and run into one of those because it sticks to the paint on your brush, and then you have to stop and pull it off. It’s a momentum busting problem that can cause much huffing of breath, and I’m told much swearing. At least, that’s what I’ve heard.
Second lesson, make sure to watch where your paint-filled roller or brush go. In two seconds, a wall you just painted will need to be fixed because you weren’t paying attention and accidentally smacked it with another color. It’s especially vexing when you are close to being done.
Not having learned this lesson will cause a loud shout of “Oops!!”, and I hear that some oopses may cause loud swearing on occasion.
Oh, well. It just paint, and I can paint over this oops it when it dries. This is certainly frustrating, but if this is the worst it gets I guess life isn’t so terrible. This definitely comes under the heading of silly first world problems.
Painting is done for the day, and I’m waiting on The Flirt to stop and get me. We are thinking about driving two hours to go fishing, but it’s raining and at this point I’d rather stay home. Maybe I can talk him into just going to supper and a movie.
Here’s hoping that you experience few oopses or wooly boogers, and that your projects go smoothly. Blessings all!
