Today Matt & I got up at 6:30am to paint the sunroom before his parents arrived for the day, and it was so worth it! It looks amazing, like a completely different . Please excuse the shadowy picture but we’ve been going strong all day so I didn’t get to take pictures until sundown. His parents arrived right as we were finishing up wiping the paint off the floor (with warm water, a little laundry detergent, and a brillo) and it was nice to be able to show them around and hear the ooh’s and ahh’s coming from outsiders.

Throughout the day we got a door hung up on the basement entrance- which we bought for just $10 at the Habitat for Humanity Restore, we worked on the kitchen sink- and learned we need a new sink, and we figured out how to get the  mop and glow burned in stain off the living room window pane- white vinegar and a razorblade. Whew! And amidst all that, I sat out in the yard for a bit and just enjoyed having a yard and a rocking chair.
