Keep In Touch #75

Hi all, 
How are you? 
I've been painting. 
"I can paint for miles and miles." keeps running through my head. 
We're a little in limbo since we are thinking about moving and our house needs some attention. 
Our powder room is now Repose by Sherwin Williams. 
We have 28 doors in this house. I'd started painting them about 6 years ago and then ran out of steam by the time I got down to the last 6 or so. I have one left. 
The baseboards needed a touch up too. 
Jonnie's room was painted in 2011. Paint begins to look dingy after a while even though it's only the two of us. Yesterday I painted his room Snowbound by Sherwin Williams. 
My landscape guy doesn't do bigger construction projects for me. I called the same guy who did the fence to fix our retaining wall. It needed more repair than I thought. 
Another guy came and repaired and painted some stuff on the second story. 
We still have to deal with some foggy windows. We also need to address our terrible grout. 
We are plugging away at it all that way if we find something we will be ready to list our house.
That's the update on that.
To read the full story see this post.

    "Mr. Ed" and I have been doing some much needed updates here on the Prairie,
    but not at the rate you are going, friend!
    We are painting, having windows cleaned and replacing hardware.
    Think a move may be in our future, also. . .looking at possibly two years from now.
