Messy Messy Fail - For his birthday, the UPKer got a wooden train with paint set, like a DIY decorating kit. I laid out the newspaper, showed him how to dip his brush GENTLY into the paint, clean the brush in the little yogurt container of water when he wanted to change colors, etc. He was doing awesome until he used a sponge brush I had out which was too big for the paint pot and made it come flying out everywhere. Not to mention wiping his hands on the seat of the dining room chair. It was one of my summer goals to reupholster those anyways.
Tidy Victory - While the toddler was taking his morning snooze, the UPKer and I got outside in the 32 degree weather with our boots and jackets and cut back a bunch of the garden. This is happening quite late this year, typically I clean it up in October, but other priorities came first. All hanging baskets = dumped, fairy garden = collected and packed away, MOST plants = cut back. Just one more dwarf alberta spruce to plant before the ground freezes and we are all set.
