I did something really dumb, and now I have to pay for it.
If you do the crime, you must do the time, as they say.
Believe me, I regret my crime and wish I had been smarter.
My crime? It was putting screw holes into the wood walls in my kitchen.
Not just a few holes. I made loads of them.
Every time I showed you a photo like this …
or this …
or this …
I put more holes into our walls, because of course the previous holes I’d made were never exactly where I needed the screws to be. You can even see one of those screw holes in the photo above.
Normally I try to edit the holes out of photos, but I got so tired of doing that, I decided it was time to “do my time” by filling all the holes with wood putty and sanding them smooth.
Next week I’ll be repainting the kitchen walls and ceiling, so I’ve got my work cut out for me.
The next time I want to hang something that’s probably only going to hang temporarily, I’ll be smarter and use Command strips and save myself a whole lot of photo editing time.
In other news, I thought I’d show you what my fall window box looked like once all the leaves dried up in it.
I think it looks just as pretty – just less colorful.
Our burning bush is in full color now, so I added some new cuttings to the window box to freshen it up.
I didn’t take out any of the brown leaves.
I love how they look mixed in with the fresh red ones.
There are some berries on the burning bush cuttings that the birds hadn’t eaten yet.
I know this beautiful fall color will be gone soon, so I’m enjoying every minute of it as much as I can.
I sprayed the cattails with acrylic sealer, and so far that’s kept them from exploding into poof balls on a stick.
Wish me luck painting. If you don’t hear from me in the next few days, it means every bone in my body probably aches from reaching and stretching!
Vaya con Dios,
