Painting and Zippy’s

Last week, David and I bought a gallon of custom made paint at Home Depot.  Then, David painted a wall in the garage and the doors to the water heater and laundry room:

He rested in the patio, absorbing Vitamin D from the sun to boost his bone density:

Then, we drove to Zippy’s for lunch.  David ordered fried chicken, and I ordered teri-beef and ZipMin.  There was still some paint on David’s elbow:

After lunch, we went to the Napoleon Bakery section of the restaurant and bought a delicious coconut cake to take home.  There’s coconut pudding on the top and between the layers of the cake, and shredded coconut on the sides:

David does the painting and the gardening and the outdoor stuff.  I do the indoor stuff, such as cooking, washing dishes, dusting the furniture, sweeping, mopping, cleaning the bathrooms, etc.

We work as a team.  We enjoy fixing up our home.

    You do keep a lovely home between the two of you. I found it too hard to maintain a fairly large house and yard by myself so now I am happy to have a condo

    That cake looks divine. But, don’t tell me you two ate the whole thing! I’m hoping the grandkids came over and helped you enjoy it.

    I’ve been looking down the photos of your blog — the delicious Japanese lunch and your wonderful shed with all its equipment to make life easier. You’ve been very busy indeed!

    Thanks so much for visiting me at Marmelade Gypsy — it’s always a pleasure to have you there!
