Today was a day off. A day when we’d planned to be out of town but events at church yesterday kept us home instead.
Things are a little rough around here house-wise. I’m still behind on laundry after the loosey-goosey Christmas break which was immediately followed by a broken washing machine.
But a day out of the routine makes my mind start churning with ideas of big projects.
Here’s my thinking: The everyday stuff (that I obviously haven’t been doing everyday) will eventually get done. We may trip over toys and scrounge for clean clothes for a while, but the time will come when floors are cleared and TVs are dusted.
But painting a (teeny-tiny) hallway? That could literally never get done.
Therefore, a day like today is meant for painting hallways. Things that have lasting effects. Things I can look at and say . . . THAT is what I accomplished on Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday in 2012.
That would be forgotten by the weekend.
There’s the finished product! The top picture was taken when I realized I needed a before pic. It’s really a half-way-through picture!
