living room update

I painted the living room Chic Gray today. That was a job, but at least it’s done! Well, sort of. I need to paint the window trim and exterior door (both will be white) and will be doing that soon. The above photo was prior to rehanging the artwork and tv. The dogs were exhausted from watching me work.

fairy tale

This wasn’t Stephen King’s first foray into the fantasy genre, but it is definitely one of his best. The story was pretty long (around 600 pages), but I didn’t want the story to end. Most of the story took place in the “fairy tale” world, complete with princesses, giants, castles, and more. But the beginning part of the story explained how the main character learned of the other world. This book was super engaging and I found myself neglecting my duties around the house so I could read it.

I have been reading a lot of great books lately!

My rating: 4.5/5

better call saul

This was a superb series. Perhaps not quite as good as its predecessor, but still pretty darn good. When I first heard about it, I thought it was going to be a joke of a series, but I should have known better.

The final season felt a little rushed, but they did wrap everything up, just like Breaking Bad did. No ambiguity here! And, I appreciate that.

My rating: 4.5/5

painting progress

As much as I did not want to, I painted the living room ceiling yesterday. It took forever. And, I couldn’t see what I was doing as the room was too dark (even though I did it during the day). Though, I can’t really see any spots that were missed (thanks to the dark room) so I guess it doesn’t matter.

I’ll be painting the walls in a few weeks. I suspect it will also take forever, but at least it will make a noticeable difference.

dinner out

The days post-holiday have been rather uneventful. But I remedied that by going out to dinner with Jake, Amelia, and her mom last night. She’s heading back to school this weekend, so that was the reason. We went to one of my favorites, Tap814. They have the best cocktails there! Their food’s good, too. We had a nice evening talking about dogs, much to Jake’s chagrin.
