And today, July 2, the prompt is “Bound in Silence”.
Well, I was originally going to set the timer for 10 minutes and write randomly about this topic, but I have been bound in silence all day painting our hallway which had been awaiting final prep by Kevin for, well, a long time. We have seen guests come and go, bound in silence not to mention the rough walls, with tape hanging off them, although I suspect they wondered why on earth it took us this long to get around to painting them. I was bound in silence not to mention the hallway in which I had already spent hours stripping wallpaper, patching walls (not true lath an plaster, but really layers upon layers of painted over wallpaper), sanding, and priming (oil primer needed in the spots where oil paint refused to stay put under the latex primer.) But, bound in silence no longer this weekend as Kevin finished patching and sanding the hallway so that I could finally paint – I am on holidays now, and looking for another painting project. Well, I have one now, taking longer of course than I thought it would. But a first coat of upper walls done, soon to be joined by a first coat of the lower walls.
Here is the hallway through the years, ending in today, bound in silence no longer.
