What I did on my Thanksgiving Vacation
And it wasn't a whole lot of stitching! I painted my kitchen. I've been trying to get motivated to tackle the project since the weather cooled off but I just don't like painting. I love the results but hate the process as I'm just a mess at room painting. But with an extra long weekend, I decided to bite the bullet and get out the paint brushes. And I'm very, very pleased with the results of TWO days work! Two coats of primer and two coats of paint and I'm finished. Whew what a job. The color is called Southwest Potter by Benjamin Moore and it's a warm reddish brown color. It looks great with the hardwood floor in the kitchen.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I know for some, family members were dearly missed but I hope good memories and the warmth of existing family helped you be thankful. I had a wonderful time at my sister's and got to see some of my BILs family who visited from Ohio. We had an amazing day with two turkeys and lots of laughter. I can't wait to repeat the visit at Christmas time - only 4 short weeks away! And we had snow - at least 4 inches in New Hampshire when it was done - not as much here in Maine but enough to make it a white Thanksgiving.
