Moving Right Along

You give a man some tools and he can work magic. I love watching him work. It’s exciting for many reasons, but what I can mention here is that it gives me free reign to continue adding to his fix-it list because I know he can do the work.

A side note: You may have noticed the bright yellow color on the walls. Well, this is the true color of the paint. The paint color, a.k.a. Golden Glow or #213-4 is one of our more subtle colors throughout our house. We are a colorful family. White walls never really fit into this project.
