Woulda Coulda Shoulda

Well, that game was a bit of a bummer! I so wanted our Riders to win, especially after what was an especially heart-breaking defeat last year. Next year. *sigh* We watched the game tonight with Coco, who you see here focussed on the game, and Rex and Erin, of course. We were grateful to be invited to watch the game because our house is in rough shape.

Mostly this weekend we painted. And, no, we're not done yet. Unless you have an old house with old-style trim, you might not appreciate how much work is involved but with trim around 7 doors and 2 windows and 5 paneled doors and stairs, including all the spindles while being careful not to get paint on the wooden steps and banister ... well ... diddly and time consuming. It is looking really good, though, so I'm very happy. Just know we'll be working on this for the next couple of weeks yet. We ran out of trim paint today, otherwise we might have finished painting the trim. We still have about 4 or 5 hours of trim to do, the inside of the closet, and some more carpentry and painting work on the stairs ... some touch up ... and then we can clean up the rest of the house, which is looking rather uninhabitable right now. Christmas is coming on waaayyyy too fast for me!! How I wish I could be more like Lyn who most certainly has all of her gifts not just purchased and/or made but also beautifully wrapped ... and all of her baking done and in the freezer, too. I accept that I will never be so prepared.

Friday night Kevin and I saw both Mikael and Alexa perform in the Sound of Music, the Evan Hardy school musical. It was very well done and, of course, Mikael and Alexa were stars!

With the warmer weather we've had the past few days, the snow in the trees has half-melted in such a way that they look like "snowball trees". Why make snowballs when you can just pick them from snowball trees?

Now I'll go pack my Rider hoodie away until next year.
