Granny's "Movers" Week

This is one of our family's most favorite television shows of all time ---
Imagination Movers
These guys are from Louisiana and they have one of the most creative television shows ever!  They encourage kids (and adults) to use imaginations to figure out solutions to problems and various situations.  If you haven't seen
Imagination Movers, check out some videos on YouTube and get inspired!
Well, this week the four kids are on their family adventure! It seems like for the past 3 1/2 years since Michael was WIA, they have hit one obstacle after another with his medical treatments, income, insurance, housing ... and this family adventure almost did not happen up until a few hours before they left our house to hit the road southbound.  And it's exciting and good -- I will share more later when I get the go-ahead!

Dan & I had talked about us having a little get-away when they all took this trip, but we just couldn't get out of town this week. Too much at his office and too many projects going on at the house.
So, if you haven't guessed from my Imagination Movers video... Granny is painting some more! And I must admit that cannot stand to prime walls ... I want to just jump right in with a roller and a gallon (or two) of paint and just get it done!  But, since most of our walls haven't been painted in 15 years, I must prime first.

My house is a disaster area when I paint... but I think the finished product will be worth the extra day of priming.

And this week I'm doing the hall, rest of kitchen & dining areas AND the ceiling in these areas... along with our sunroom
(but no ceiling repaint on this!)

I plan on having everything completed and put back together by the time the kids come back through this weekend.  And then this ol' Granny is taking a painting break until this fall. I still have some more summer projects to do, and we still have our living room, foyer hallway and stairway (and all ceilings) to prime and paint. 
And I will... this fall.
So, until next week when I can actually have time to sit down to catch up on my dear friends' posts ... I think I'll turn on YouTube to listen to the Movers ...
I'm gonna paint... paint... paint... paint... paint... paint
Paint the week away!

Oh yes, painting is always fun to me! Hard work but putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls or on a piece of furniture is therapy:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

You are a brave one....I have attempted only a couple of times to paint a room. That's why I don't do it. I've never been crafty and even some things that might be easy or simple to others, is always the opposite for me and a great challenge too.
You must post pics when it's finished!
