Periodically over the years I’ve decided that I was going to do some fixing-up around the house.
I have wall paper in the master bedroom, one bathroom, the dining room and the kitchen. I HATE wallpaper – any kind – anywhere!! One bedroom is painted an ugly glossy yellowish color. Another is a God-awful dreary depressing gray. In my opinion ALL walls should be white! Each bedroom closet has two thick, heavy wooden sliding doors that are ugly as Sin! I prefer the lighter louvered kind.
I’ve been in this house 21 years, longer than I’ve lived in any other, and I can’t believe that I’ve done nothing about this all this time. I have done some things – I got all new appliances, toilets, window treatments, sink and shower taps and exhaust fans in the bathrooms and above the stove. I also had the exterior repainted and twice replaced the roof, once because of hurricane damage. But whenever I decided to make the interior more to my liking, I would lie down until the feeling went away.
But, finally, I took action. I hired a handyman who has done some work for me in the past. (You didn’t think I would do it myself, did you? With my ten left thumbs and total lack of do-it-yourself aptitude?) Two bedrooms and one bathroom have been completed already. What a difference white makes! The rooms look so much bigger. Another week to ten days and the work will be completed. I can hardly wait. I hate the necessary mess while the work is in process, and I hate being confined to the house during the day. But, it’s worth it to finally have the house the way I like it.
Here is the latest video I uploaded to my YouTube channel – about a minute and a half of the flamingos at Flamingo Gardens in Davie, Florida doing what flamingos do. They are about the silliest looking things.
