Be a painter

I am a jock, not a musician (I do make a joyful noise when I sing!), and I am definitely not an artist, but there is something that needs to be said about putting a paint brush and some paint onto something.

This weekend, I painted 7 outside doors on our house. Yes, imagine that we have 7 outside doors (we actually have 9) and I managed to paint two coats on all of them. None of the children were injured, nor was sexy neck thank you very much. (But do check post called “Be flexible”)

Oh what a feeling getting that paint onto those doors. Especially after I picked out and painted the front door purple! YUP purple. Check out the pic: Doesn’t that look great! Even the neighbours and their daughter-in-law like it and they are the ones that need to stare at it all the time. Thanks sexy neck for giving me the time to play with a paint brush! I loved it!!

Be flexible

Oliver is a beautiful 3rd child in a busy household – mom’s a doctor, dad’s a teacher plus 2 older siblings under 10 years old. YIKES! Little Oliver is working on being fffffff… I guessed friendly, but nope it is flexible. He is learning to share his favourite swing with his siblings. Share his trampoline with my son and his new cat Tiger. He is learning to be flexible. Oliver, good skill to learn. I think I am still learning it too! Yesterday my boys pulled out their cross country skiis with their dad. (I didn’t say a word!) Today, my youngest decided to help in the kitchen… Thanks for keeping me flexible boys! ImageImage
