The trim gave me an enormous amount of difficulty. I struggled with that for most of the day. I did 2 coats on the baseboards, touched up the ceiling, and put a half-assed coat on the window frame. The window is already white, so you probably wouldn't notice anyways. I couldn't do anything with that bloody tape!!! I swear you'd think I buttered the walls before masking them. Frick!

I forgot about supper till almost 6:00pm, when we were both starving. It was Indian night, so I went all out. It took me 2 1/2 hours!! We finished eating around 9:00pm. Hubby had to go out, so he asked if I wanted anything. I said I wouldn't mind a dessert, but I feel guilty 'cause of our challenge. I told him if he could find something small, then go for it because I want to make muffins or a sweet bread in the next couple days. He said Baklava would be perfect, and would fit in with our Indian night. He came home with a mini log cake. lol Everything was closed early so he had to go to the grocery store.

I updated my menu, and the food inventory list. We changed a couple meals, but that's to be expected. Tomorrow I think we'll have to change our meal again because of all the leftovers from tonight. Yay! Leftovers!! LOL This is the first night, which is amazing because I got so used to cooking for 4 people just so we'd always have leftovers. Now our meals are perfect everytime for just the 2 of us.

I used [ profile] xtown_traffic's Kofta recipe. Thank you so much, it was wonderful! I changed the spices a bit just 'cause I didn't have everything. I used some coconut milk too. Cross that can off my inventory! lol It was wonderful over plain Basmati rice. :) Thank you for sharing it.

I am pretty bummed about the painting progress. *shakes fist at [ profile] kasey9kahne* I expected to be at least halfway done the living room/hallway. Oh well, at least I can set the dining room back up and move the living room furniture into it. I just have a couple red spots to touch up and it'll be good to go. I haven't even started on masking the others walls. And after the butterwall incident, I think I'm going to do the trim first this time around.

I think after I clean all the brushes and everything downstairs, I'm going to call it a night. I deserve a break!

PS The wall colour is called "Fiery Red" and the trim is called "Popped Corn." (There will be more pics once the furniture is back in.)
Here are more pictures for you. :) They are kinda random, however they do have a "painting" theme. You will see the old wall colour, my cats goofing around, and a glimpse of the new colour.

Hope you enjoy! (+8) )

First Snow

Nov. 15th, 2005 04:21 pm
We had snow last week, but it was so light and the weather was too warm that it melted as soon as it hit the ground. Today we got our first *real* snow fall. The weather is calling for freezing rain and more snow.

Weather Forecast... the reason I hate Ottawa this time of the year )

My husband is out in that shit right now getting gas for me and picking up my lunch for tonight. I'm leaving for work real soon, and I'll be taking the long way, avoiding all highways. I can't wait until Ottawa cools down to a normal winter temperature and only snow falls from the sky. I broke my pelvis in a car accident 2 years ago because we got caught in freezing rain. Ugh I hate this weather.
