one step at a time

Hey, did I mention that we (sort of) painted the stairs??? It still needs a good deal of touching up, but that will have to wait until after the holidays. At least now I don’t feel like it’s a giant eyesore in the middle of the living room. When we started out prepping, we were taping up, and we stopped and were both silent for a minute, and Greg said, “I can’t BELIEVE we didn’t have Henry Sanding Floor [our floor sanding guy] do this.” Which was word for word *exactly* what I had been thinking at that same moment.

    “Henry Sanding Floor” Heehee! Still love that. Also, I love the falling snow jazz on this here blog. You really manage to harness the power of the internet, Kate. :)
