I’m getting ready to paint my ceilings. Michelangelo I’m not. I’m not looking forward to that inevitable crick in my neck, but the ceilings have to get done.

We’re prepping the kitchen for the new cabinet refacing too. For some reason the original kitchen design has a wine rack in one opening and a large drawer underneath it. It’s ridiculously inefficient. I talked to the consultant and he said they can move the drawer to the top if Greg removes the wine rack. They’re not supposed to do any interior work, but he said he can get the installers to relocate the drawer for no extra charge.

I had one major setback. The sunflower heads which we painstakingly cut down and dried were stolen the other night. I had them drying on my screened back porch. Something ate through the screens to get to the seeds. Sometimes I can’t win for trying.

How’s the weather by you? Any plans for the fall?

  1. Jenny: I like to paint, but not ceilings. I’ll have a crick in my neck for a week after I get done.

    re: sunflowers
    I saw a squirrel today make off with the last head of sunflowers. I tossed them all out and the birds and squirrels went wild.
