One thing leads to another



The plan at the start of the day was to paint some new trim boards around the kitchen door. At the end of the day, the kitchen had a couple of new shelves. How does painting trim turn into installing shelves? Well, the most important thing was that my lovely wife wanted a new shelf to put the microwave on.

Okay, I thought, the paint can wait. Might as well go to the store for shelves. Before heading out to the building supply store I thought I'd check the condition of my paint. Good thing I did as it had gone bad. That happens. I wasn't going to be painting anyway. So paint goes on the list along with shelves.

Did I say shelves, plural? The microwave only needed one shelf, but the type of shelving we wanted to use was twice the size we needed. Might as well cut it in half and install two of them. Oh . . . we've now got two shelves, well then we can move the spice rack, espresso maker and wheat grinder from the wire rack. Then the wire rack can be moved upstairs. I suspect some other piece of furniture will be moved, given away or sold to make room for the rack.

While were at the building supply I found some adhesive needed to install the windows in my boat project. Why aren't I working on my boat? Oh yeah, there's some trip boards that need to be painted.

Tomorrow. First thing. Paint those boards. Before anything else demands my attention.
