Today we conquered the room downstairs. I think we are completely done painting it now. It looks fantastic. We're letting it dry now and will check it again before pronouncing it "DONE done," but we both think it's finished.

I'm so happy! Now we'll be able to start moving stuff into that room and getting it all set up. I'm hoping we'll have room to put more bookshelves in there than we currently own, because we have too many books for the shelves we have.

I got more paint on my arms and clothes this time, but I didn't get any in my hair. I put all my hair up in a pony tail, clipped up my bangs, and covered the whole mess with a shower cap. I looked ridiculous, but my hair is not painty now.

I'm so pleased with the way this whole project went. We estimated our paint needs correctly, the rollers we got worked great on these walls, the paint went on smoothly, and the color still looks awesome.

Pie still doesn't like it. He crept in and watched us from the doorway a few times, but he ran out each time, obviously upset. When we were finished and came upstairs, he greeted us with some choice words about how he did not like the changes to his room and how we should really make it the way it used to be.

I think the cat likes reds and pinks. I just realized, while he was telling me all of this, that he was sitting on his favorite rug, which is a deep maroon. Maybe he really liked that nasty pink wall. I know cats don't see color as we know it, but I wonder if those hues are pleasant to him somehow.

Maybe I will get some bedspreads for that room that have some of that color in them. It would go okay with the new walls.

    I'm not sure this is right - wasn't one of the gears elliptical to correct for Earth's orbit?

    Whoa. Can this be true, and if so, did Thomas Seymour and/or Robert Dudley have any clue??…
