Usually I try to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. But I posted on Monday and Tuesday, and the gap from Tuesday to Friday seemed too long.
So, here I am with some randomness to fill in the gap.
Remember when blogs were more like this all the time? When we didn’t write listicles and didn’t worry about SEO optimization and keywords?
I’ve been blogging for so long, I’m like a grandparent who talks about the good old days.
I finished painting Zoe’s nightstand, which I mentioned on Tuesday.
It’s cloudy and dark here today, so I will take better pictures and do a post with before and afters later, but here’s a peek.
I did a series of time-lapse videos while I was sanding, priming, and painting, so hopefully that post will have a video too.
Since the paint I used on Zoe’s nightstand is the same I used in my kitchen, I decided to touch up some of my cabinets while I had the paint out.
The cabinets and drawers by the sink get the most abuse, but they’re looking great after a little touching up.
I even wiped down and repainted the floor of that cabinet. So of course, I keep opening the cabinet to gaze at the fresh whiteness.
And since I had the repainting bug yesterday, I also got out the leftover gray paint and touched up our foyer railings.
Today is Halloween, so…do you want to see our pumpkins?
Joshua and his girlfriend came over to carve with us, and they made a No-Face pumpkin.
Lisey opted to paint her pumpkin instead of carving it.
The paint wasn’t drying fast enough:
(It still needs felt ears, but I believe it’s a baby deer. And the black thing in the middle is a nose, not a mouth! You can look at it both ways, we discovered.)
Lisey’s pumpkin developed a bad spot, which we discovered just as she was about to paint it.
But never fear! She fixed it.
Sonia made a Cuphead pumpkin.
(Cuphead is a video game with vintage graphics. The graphics might be 75% of why Sonia likes the game!)
And Zoe did the cowboy emoji.
Speaking of Halloween, I ended up giving away the last two costumes I had. I just really wanted someone to be able to use them this year!
And honestly, I did not want to store them for another year.
The weather here was looking positively dreadful, but the forecast has improved a bit. I hope the same is true for you if you were planning on going out and dressing up!
P.S. I messed up the code on the button for the $15 bonus offer from Top Cashback. I fixed it in the original post, but I’m adding it here too. It’s a referral link, which means we both get a bonus when you click on it, sign up, and earn cashback.
