Look at that ornery Louis scrambling up the ladder! I snatched him down from there and
tossed put him back in the kitchen before he could do any damage. Also, look at that ugly chandelier. I detest that thing. At first I thought maybe if I paint it and get it new shades (which is what I did with the chandelier in the front parlor) it'd look a lot better. Now I think it's beyond hope. And, if you would, please ignore that mess on the dining room table.
I also hung up a panel of the new drapes I just bought so that the kitties would have something else to tear up—I mean, so I could see if I liked the drapes with the wallpaper.
I'm hoping to get a bunch more done on the dining room before I go back to work Wednesday night. It's too darn cold and slick to go outside, so I might as well get something done while I'm hunkered down inside the house.
