Old Man Winter has a hold on us, and he won’t let go.
Winter does not seem to want to leave Manitoba this year. Just when the snow is almost all gone, bang, we get hit with another storm and its back to winter wonderland.
While the wintery conditions have put a hold on spring outside work, they have provided us with some extra days to get some inside work completed.
A week ago, our friend Nestor came to mud and tape the drywall on the main floor. Ken has been doing the mudding and taping on the rooms we have completed so far, but this is far from his favorite job. Facing several large rooms, we opted to hire the job out. One week later, we have several rooms ready for painting.
What can I say, I like color. The bedrooms are a bright blue (bit more teal color than the picture shows). I had planned on painting the inside of the closets white, but decided to use up the last gallon of yellow paint left over from the sunroom. Once the white trim and doors are in, no one will even know. Until of course they open the closet door and – bam – they get hit with a healthy dose of sunshine yellow.
Hopefully the weather will turn more spring-like soon. If not, I am off to the paint store again and no telling what color I will bring home next.
