No Writing Today

Today was full of paint, stain, and polyurethane.  Started by painting the entire living room ceiling to make it one nice, consistent color. Then I moved on to sanding my wood project for the fireplace, becoming unhappy with the sanding, and then restaining the sanded section. It turns out that sanding it is fine, but sanding it with my electric sander… way too much power, even with 220 sandpaper. After getting it back to where I wanted it I moved on to the multiple coats of polyurethane. I’m going with three, unless I decide to do four. In between and around all that I helped the wife paint the kitchen and even had time to make a trip to the Home Depot.
It’s been a long day and my knee is killing me. Too bad the living room is in a shambles, otherwise I might crash on the couch and see what’s on Netflix.
