Once we got to the picnic sight, everyone settled down a bit, especially when they found a swampy puddle full of frogs.
Frog catching commenced and the mayhem began.
It made me realize once again that I am better off as a college prof.
Because Spring and Autumn are good times for painting, not too hot, not too muggy, I started painting my kitchen. It was time to get rid of the pale blue from the previous owner. I did a test wall and liked the way it brings out the warmth in the golden oak cabinets, this morning I washed all the rest of the kitchen walls with TSP (which not longer has P but is still supposed to work) and this is what we have.

|This brush may never be the same, but he is having a great time|
|This color - Chesapeake Sunset - warms up and lightens the entire space.|
As soon as this is finished, I am going to tackle the dining room with its blue wallpaper with pink flowers on it. The previous owner really liked wall paper to hide the cracking plaster. This is why I have to breathe deeply to avoid great heaving shudders each time I strip another room of the layers of paper. I know the time that will have to go into repairing the plaster - it will be worth it, but I'd rather get right to the paint part!
