Whistling while I work

Jordi Canosa Photography.

I've started painting the family room, and my right rotator cuff is already pissed at me. I love to paint, but at the end of the day I will be dreaming about one of these delicious getaways.

Elle Decor.

Apartment Therapy.

Côté Maison.

House Beautiful.

Dear Raina, Yes, it is good, I feel, to plan a treat as a reward at the end of a difficult job. These 'get away from it all' locations would be the perfect present after days of aching arms and paint splatters.

You know what kills me about photos of houses like this? Someone (not me) owns them. Someone (not me) lives there. Do they understand what they have? Do they appreciate it? Do they ever go there or are they too busy traveling to and from one of their other 9 houses? And most importantly, will they adopt me?

Can't wait to see what magic you will work on your family room.

What color are you ruining your rotator cuff for, I'm curious, can't wait to see.

Can we somehow combine # 1 and # 2 in the same building? For different moods and times of day? Or am I asking too much and should just go for number 1?

Oh I wish I was there painting with you! How are you going to reach the 2nd story parts? Can't wait for the ‘after’ photos! I wish I could just pop myself into the last image. It's pure gorgeousness.

Sherri - Scroll down a couple of posts and you'll see it.

TDED - I don't think that's too much to ask. At all! #1 and #6 are my faves.

SusieQ - I haven't figured that part out yet. I may work as high as I can go and then call in professionals to finish the job.

That little Marrakesh dipping pool - that's really all I need. My own little oasis...

Had the rotator cuff problem. Had wonderful treatments/exercises but the best short-term relief: Aleve and icepacks! Good luck and carry on.
