I'm Tired

Friday after work I decided to tackle my bedroom paint job. Now I remember why I had put this off for so many years. You have to move out all the stuff, clean all the stuff and then put it all back neatly. That's a big job!
Before

After

I do like the color I chose. It is a burnt orange and goes great with the afghan I made this summer and my new oil painting. I purchased the painting at the Meals On Wheels auction that was held the end of July. Now that the painting is done I am tackling the job of putting everything back. Ugh. I have 2 huge piles of books to get rid of and some yarn. Organizing my knitting stuff was about the only part of the "putting back" I didn't mind. Well, that and making the bed.

New Oil Painting

My view laying on the bed exhausted but not finished!

I'm going to keep going until I totally tucker out. And then tomorrow I'll tackle the rest of the house. I started working on my room when the rest of the house was tidy. Now it is all a mess, I'm not sure how I managed that!
