Well! What can I say?? I missed last week. I kept thinking I’d get a little more done, but I don’t think I did! Then I had to go to the ER last Sunday night, and on the way I ran into a deer! My car was still drivable so we got to the ER without any delay. My son has been sick for almost all of the last two weeks, but seems to be getting better now. He needed a breathing treatment and they did a chest x-ray and checked to see if he had the flu. So he didn’t have pneumonia or the flu – just bronchitis. Now he has a nebulizer.
EXCUSES! EXCUSES! I think this pantry project was just a little too ambitious for me (and my husband!) to do in real time. I’ll know better next time! Thanks again to Linda for all her hard work at calling it home.
Here’s the link to all the other bloggers’ ORC reveals:
My husband painted the parlor. The walls are now pumpkin patch. That’s Benjamin Moore’s terracotta, I guess. Here are a few pictures taken at night. I’ll take some during the daytime and post them later.
This is the bay window that juts out at an odd angle. Just another example of Queen Anne Victorians’ asymmetry. I don’t think there’s any symmetry to the parlor at all! There’s my great-grandfather on the right. (He’s in the picture!) His doctor in Ireland told him to move to America because he had asthma. He moved to Pittsburgh around 1921 and worked in the steel mills. He never had any more trouble with asthma!
