I’m whupped. Started at 7:30 this morning, left farm at 4:15. I painted today. I painted walls, no cutting in, that’s tedious and will take days. I wanted the “fun” stuff first!
Here goes!

Kitchen, dining area and living room are painted a sage green.

The hallway and son’s/guest room is painted a cream color. The hallway bathroom will be this color too. It is still in operation, so not kilzed, textured or painted

The little girls, granddaughters age almost 6 and 7, love purple. I don’t. But I’m Mamaw and Mamaw’s do crazy things.

My room is a pale blue, much better than purple!

Still gotta paint the master bathroom.

Tomorrow morning I’ll clean up where the sheep pens are gonna go. Might get them laid out. That consists of laying cow panels on the ground and seeing what I can make with them. LOL

Tired. Got to feed dogs and sheep, take shower and get a big glass of ice water.

Great job! You got a whole lot done. :celebrate

So those windows looking at "back property line".....will there be an animal area there? I mean, something to watch while ,:caf..... Or dinner? 🤔

There is a really ugly storage building! And a series of scrappy chicken pens, a oval round pen, not much of a view. On the back porch I can see 2 of the fields and will be able to see the sheep. Front porch view is the driveway and 3rd field, plus the over grown front fence line.

So true. This Mamaw (Pau Pau) dyed DGS2's hair purple for him for a trip to Magic Mountain. DD1 was horrified that I would go and get the spray color and do it. She said I would never have done that when I was just a mother. I agreed but said that grandmothers follow their own rules.

DD1 picked that color for her room 25 years ago. Looked ok on the chip. Didn't get a whole lot on the wall before it showed its true colors. Went back and chose a lighter shade (whether she wanted to or not).

Personal opinion for this instance (not asked for):
Not without checking with the parents first.

Wash out color spray. His hair is jet black and I had to use 3 coats to get even a suggestion of purple in the daylight. Mom agreed as long as it washed out for Picture Day. Moms make rules, grandmas can break them for certain things.

20+ years ago when DS3 was in Jr. High the rage was for surfer hair. This was a longish crew cut which was bleached on top to look like sun bleached hair. DS3 had earned enough money to go to the hair salon but I refused to take him. Finally, after continual pleading, whining, etc. his dad gave permission. I would not allow him to spend his $30 and did it for him myself. Entire family watched the process while DS3 wailed that I would ruin his hair and he could never go to school again! Kept telling him to wait till I was finished. After the crew cut, DS3 said it was perfect. He was happy, it grew out later, and he saved his $30 (less the $5 for the hair dye). He was "cool" or whatever word was fashionable at the time. DS3's hair is a light brown turning blond in the summer. Occasionally Grandmothers need to be cool for their grandchildren since they were never cool when bringing up their own children. LOL

I love that big kitchen window, @Baymule ! What view do you look out at from there?
I took pictures yesterday!

The kitchen/dining “view”. Not much to look at. The tree line at the left is the property line.

Sitting on the back porch, pan to the right of that lovely kitchen view. This is the back field.

Moving to the right.

This is the field I’ll use for the sheep. I’m going to put up cow panel pens so I can just hobble across the driveway to feed and water them. View is from the back porch.

View from the front porch. Tree line in the distance is the front by the road.

On the front porch, to the right, property line.
