It’s like the sky

Surprise!  The to-do is done!

Our porch ceiling is now painted a pretty turquoise blue.

I wouldn’t have made the (self-imposed) new year’s deadline if it wasn’t for this boy.

He and I balanced on ladders and worked together.  When there’s a will (and a 13 year old around), there’s a way.

  3. The blue is perfect. How nice that you had the help of your sweet boy. Good for him. Painting is a task, the fact he stuck it out, shows determination and a willingness to help his mother, which is admirable.

  13. Oh, Rie...I LOVE it! Just a perfect shade. But what I think is the best thing about it, is that your 13-year old helped you! Awesome!
