Vacation Day #2

We had so much fun yesterday painting the dining room (whee!) that we woke up early today and slapped up a second coat.

But now that it's up, we're not loving it. We're liking it enough not to start over, but the elegant Wedgwood blue shade we were hoping for has more of a periwinkle baby's-room hue to it. We're going to install those big rectangular frames of molding on the walls that can transform a gay dining room into a totally faggy dining room, so the color might recede behind the façade of gracious living. Time will tell.

But there's nothing we can do about it now; we're taking off in a few minutes to visit my friend Bill in Indianapolis tonight and then we're spending the rest of the weekend with the fiancé's grandmother in Ohio.

Be good while we're gone!
