ROW80/Red Door(!) Check-In

Aack, I'm late! Probably because I did a dismal job on my writing goals:
1,417 words added. I guess it's not horrible...not horrible is okay.

Still reading both craft books.

Finished painting the entire back of the house -- porch and everything. At one point I was almost in tears -- transitioning from high ladder to porch roof...gah! I don't mind the roof, especially ours, with a nice little pitch -- I was on a high ladder all day and I think my adrenaline got the better of me.

Extra added bonus of a shiny newly painted door -- red! I have always always always wanted a red front door.
But nothing else is painted on the front of the house yet.

I go back to work tomorrow, plan on stocking-up on all the research books I need. Which gets me more excited than I can tell you.

How's everyone else doing?

  1. My previous house (in Ohio) had a red door and I loved it!
    And 1,417 words is NOT horrible at all! Nicely done!

    1. The red door makes me happy every time I open it! And especially when I pull into the driveway, it's so there! And thanks for the NOT horribleness.

  3. Amy ~~love, love, love the red door! That's like setting your creativity on fire every time you walk through it. I think it's a win-win when you write plus unleash your inner child! They can feed one another.
    Cheers ~~ Mary B :-)

  4. I love what you said! As I was painting the door, I had a silent chant of "only good things through this door..." But I never thought about creativity!

    Now, as I walk through the door -- I will add to my chant: Every good thing through this door, thank you for unleashing my creative spirit as I pass through."

    Yes! Thanks, Mary!

  7. I found your blog from the GUTGAA event. I couldn't resist checking out a few blogs before the event started and following them as well.

    What a fun blog, I am glad I found you. So, the door looks fantastic. For some reason a red door is always classy to me. I love your plant decoration too, very nice touch.
