Sunday evening blather

Thank you for the kind words regarding our family and the storm. Everyone has been accounted for now. All are safe. That's the important part.

In other news....

Would someone please tell me why anyone would paper their walls, paint over the wallpaper, wallpaper on top, and paint some more? Restoration and renovation continue at Casa deDoula. The current process is Kaity's room. I thought painted over wallpaper removal was difficult in our first floor bathroom. But that room is only about 30 years old. It didn't have time to accumulate as many layers as Kaity's room, where apparently the paint, wallpaper, paint cycle happened from 1920 until we bought it in 1995.

Kaity is a trooper. She is working harder than the rest of us. She really wants her new dolphin decorated bedroom.

I'm taking lots of pictures along the way. I want to make a photo journal of all that we do.

There aren't any fibery pictures to show. I'm still knitting Kaity's sweater and spinning the Brenda fleece. It's so relaxing at the end of the day. The sweater may be finished soon. My mother is having her knee replaced on Thursday. Circus begins in earnest this week also. So there will be lots of knitting time for me.

Oh, that stinks. I hate scraping. Good for Kaity. Those dolphins do sound nice.
