Oh Sure, Painting is Fun!!


I always wear a white sailor shirt when I paint.  Or khaki’s. It makes me feel stylish.  Well, when I’m not shoving screwdrivers in my hand, but whatever.

Did anyone else read Napalm instead of Nalplex?  I sure did.  That would be a hell of a paint.  You don’t like it, light it!!  I love the smell of Nalplex in the morning!!

I dream of a little Dutch boy coming to help me paint, but alas, I paint alone.  Hint: the paint color is called “New Avocado”.  Think what you may.



Here’s a picture once they got the counter tops, sink and faucet in…mind you, the cabinets have been painted now, but you can’t see the finished product until it’s, well, finished!

Looks more modern than it did, huh?  And much more fitting a “cottage” house.

Had to peel off the superglue from my wound as the injury was getting a little “pus-ie”.  Have stuffed it full of antibiotic ointment and am letting it ooze right now.  Oh sorry, were you eating dinner?  It is healing okay though.

More to come…


I’d like to introduce you to a few dog blogs I just love:

TWEEDLESThrough the Eyes of Tweedles is all about a pug who communes with nature and writes lovely thoughts.  You will enjoy Tweedles a lot.





we 3 doxies

We 3 Doxies is all about World Domination by dachshund, particularly Puddles, who offers beer, Cheetos and a special brand of Kool-Aid to her readers.  Puddles is incorrigible.




Mayor Frankie

Frankly Speaking is not only a dachshund named Frankie Furter running for Mayor of Blogville, but he is Puddles nemesis.  Can’t read one without the other.

And lastly for today is Tales and Tails, a very fun blog about Bunny the Greyhound, and her siblings Lilac, Blueberry and Morgan.  They go on many adventures and see much of the world. They get in trouble sometimes too, and Lilac has a poop problem.  She likes to poop in their van.

Have a great night, and let me know how you like the other blogs!!

I'm like Bunny. I had clicked on your name SEVERAL times and could not see a blog for you.
I am glad that you are enjoying your visits to Blogville. I'm the new Mayor.. in case you didn't know. Butt of course, Puddles' Governor trumps my Mayor.
Your blog is pretty. All swirley and colorful. Sort of like fall leaves in a windstorm.
Thanks for sayin nice words about us.

How weird! When I click on it, it shows my blog. Odd.
I happen to love your vintage kitchen. In fact my daughter and her Mr. just bought a home that was built in the 40's, I'd like to trade her for my newer model.
She has chosen a jadeite green for her cabinets, you know what I'll be doing this weekend:)
And on another note, our local farmers market has an adoption booth for retired greyhounds. Aren't they the sweetest creatures?
Your new kitchen is coming along beautifully! Our mom says she needs to get a painting project going around here!
We are big fans of Tweedles and Puddles!

Good job on the kitchen: not so great job on the hand. Hope it will be back in full operation soon.

I'm dyin laughin about the Napalm BOL!

Your kitchen does look very cute and cottagey :) You'd scream if you saw mine. Blue on blue...how'd you like to cook in a bathroom?! Plus, never noticed it before purchase (of course)but the counter isn't level and if you look under it, guess what? Boards rammed at odd angles in an attempt to make it level BOL! Don't hire this carpenter! Would love to rip the whole thing out but thousands in green stuff just can't go in that direction right now. So, I keep turning the pots in circles so everything gets cooked evenly and pretend I'm in a bubble bath in my relaxing blue kitchen all the while ;)

Thinkin avocado should make a yummy kitchen color :) If you have any left over and are still in the painting mode after yours is done BOL let me know ;)

Waggin at ya,

The Roo Family
