So I picked out this lovely charcoal color to paint the trim on our house. The painters were only supposed to use it on the trim and the fascia boards.
Today I walked out into the backyard and found them painting all the posts on the back patio, which we had wanted to keep white. I shrugged and said 'oh well' cause I figured it would be too hard to paint them back white again. White over charcoal might never cover. Then I forgot all about it.
My husband came home from work and had a fit! He pointed out that charcoal black support posts all along the back of the house would be invisible at night - people would be walking into them. Whoops! I didn't even think of that. So much for not repainting them white.
Tomorrow I have to tell the painters they need to repaint all the support posts. Sigh.
I wish the house would somehow juat take care of itself (like my parents' house always seemed to do when I was a kid and unaware of the all the issues).
On a brighter note, I managed to get some sewing done today. I pieced two blocks for my mini-group's holiday tablecloth. I made two fabric postcards that just need a little quilting and embellishment. Tomorrow I pick up a quilt from the LAQ, and tomorrow night I get to see a production of Candide at the Kentwood Theater. Saturday I will play D&D again. Maybe I will sew some more on Sunday.
Tuesday, my mini-group is holding a sew-in. If I can get the binding on my cat quilt by then, I'll be satisfied. There just never seems to be enough time to sew - or maybe it's that my sewing time doesn't always correspond to my inspired time?
