I spent time today volunteering in Montpelier, where Tropical Storm Irene had caused flooding in a number of downtown businesses.
It was heartbreaking to hear Kismet‘s owner talk about how her restaurant had flooded three times in the last eight months. I’m hoping that she meets her goal of reopening this weekend.
It was hard to get to work when I returned home. For whatever reason, I finally settled on painting my naked file drawer fronts.
I learned a lot about myself while spray painting the drawers:
- I suck at spray painting.
- I have no patience for making repeated light coats of paint because…
- …I really like drowning the crap out of a surface.
- Even though I can’t see well, I will justify spray painting in the dark .
So my drawers aren’t coated evenly and have visible paint drips. I also touched the drawers before they were dry, thus creating some charming fingerprints.
It looks like I have more spray painting in my future. Meh.
My frustrations floated away once I stopped to look at the rocking sunset:
I realized that the drawers matched the sunset and therefore, could not be 100% evil.
