Day One

I am taking a week off from work, I don't think I have ever done that before. Maybe a day here and there but not five days in a row. I have one simple goal, with multiple steps. Set up the studio. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? Wrong!
To set up the studio I have to first paint a room and then move the exercise equipment into the newly painted room and out of future studio.
Easier said than done. Because at the moment the only thing standing in my way of accomplishing the first step of this goal is a ceiling. Yes, it appears that at some point in the recent past I decided that it would be easier to paint the ceiling than to tape it off with painters tape and leave it white. I'm not sure why I thought painting it was easier than taping it. It is possible that wine was involved or an over abundance of wool fumes, I can not say with any certainty, though.
Although I know is that I am the shortest member of this family and I have a roller somewhat attached to the threaded in of a mop handle attempting to paint the ceiling. My arms and the blister on my thumb are begging me to stop for the day, but my fiber studio is calling and urging me on!

Anybody feel like taking a break from their fall knitting to come paint a ceiling? No? Well it doesn't hurt to ask.

Until tomorrow...
