I am always happy to find new ways to improve my home. One of my projects is to replace the wallpaper in Lisa’s room and in the dining area. I intend to have the wallpaper professionally installed. I’ll post photos when it’s done.
Another project is to paint the porch, which is unsightly with grime. Since he is so tall, David can easily reach the ceiling of the porch with his paint brush.
I moved five pots of crotons from the patio to the area under the eaves next to the windows. The sixth pot was discarded, because the plant was dead. I hope that the move will help the remaining crotons to survive, because I think they were over exposed to prolonged, harsh sunlight in the patio. If they don’t survive, I’ll just replace them with new plants.
Another thing that makes me happy is experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen. I love casseroles or any meal that can be stretched over two days. This means I just have to cook every other day. David especially likes my chicken-broccoli casserole, my Mexican casserole, my Portuguese bean soup, and my spinach quiche. He likes my cooking so much, he is more than willing to wash the dishes after dinner. (I wash the breakfast and lunch dishes.)
So, life is good for both of us. No complaints.
