Not What You're Expecting Today

Yesterday we helped our son and daughter-in-law paint the inside of their new house.

First we delivered house-warming gifts...

then Durwood and DS conferred on a few things...

then we got busy taping what they didn't want painted.

DIL1's mom and dad, H & J, came to help too. H painted the batheroom which I think is the hardest room because it's small and you can't move the "furniture."

J painted the master bedroom. (Maybe because his old scrubs matched the paint???)

DIL1's cousin K and her husband G painted the second bedroom blue.

Aunt S did most of the edging in the entrance, living, and dining rooms.

while DS & DIL1 wielded the Power Roller, an excellent invention.

DIL1's cousin C's girlfriend K is a painting genius. She did the sunroom in no time at all and volunteer to come and paint "anytime."

I got to paint the red accent wall in the living/dining room. I put on two coats but it probably needs another.

Then I helped DS paint the kitchen a bright, sunny yellow.

We cleaned up around 7:30 and all went back to DS & DIL's apartment for a delicious spaghetti supper with salad, homemade sesame bread, and peach upside-down cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert. We were all almost too tired to eat (but we managed) and I was nearly asleep by the time we got home. I tried to write but just couldn't. Maybe these photos will make up for it?

The photos definitely make up for whatever you think you failed to write. Looks like lots of work -- but fun too. Know they're thrilled.
