House update.

The painters are cleaning up on the main floor. Everything looks so clean and fresh! We didn't do anything too exciting...just an antique white on the walls and a linen white on the ceiling. My flooring guy is coming tonight to give us an estimate on hardwood for the upstairs. We will probably go with the Brazilian cherry again so everything connects with the stairway and downstairs. We also ordered a new couch this week. It'll show up sometime in July. I sold the couch and love seat to a local college kid that works for me, so we are pretty much sitting on the floor for the next month and a half. It's already getting a bit steamy outside, so my garden seems to be getting neglected again this year. If it cools off a bit this evening, I'll go out and do a bit of weeding in the front and deadheading in the back.

Spring cleaning

Things are feeling a bit stale and we've decided to get some painting done. Neither one of us feels like sanding and painting the ceiling in the kitchen so we are currently getting estimates from some recommended painters. I have this vague feeling that the process will be very annoying and dust filled. Anyone have pointers or advice?
