Kitchen painted, the ways we spend the days of our lives vary so......

I got all of the kitchen painted, well as much as I could with the roller and standing on the ladder and on my cupboards.  I still had to have Poppie come in and finish off the corners near the ceiling.  Our ceiling are cathedral so are right at 12 feet at their highest.  It looks wonderful.  I hadn't had my teapots down from atop the cupboards since I had put them up there nearly 5 years ago, I rarely take them down as they are hard to clean and some very fragile.  I once had as many as 140 teapots at the height of my collection, I have in the last few years gifted some and generally whittled down the girth of the collection.  I noticed when I had them all down that our ceilings looked much taller and I liked the look so I am going to put them in a different place.  I think since the new divider is 12 inches thick and is viewable from both sides I will put them there instead and make the divider more closed but still not attached to the ceiling, it will give the room more of a new look.  I have decided I will replace the teapots atop the cupboard with some  of the large odd antiques I haven't had space for in my house and have had in storage in the barn.  I have an antique coffee grinder, a sausage maker, some washboards and things like that that you can't really display with out space.  They will now have space where littles can't go so they will all be safe in a new home.  All those things that I once had space for in my old long gone house, things that say something about me and my likes.  I hadn't really thought I would every get to have them in my kitchen again how excited that they just sort of found a place. 

I was listening to the radio as I drove Yogie into Zootown on Wednesday and I heard the most interesting statistic.  I have contemplated it and thought about it since.  Okay, so painting really makes the mind wonder to odd places.   The man on the radio was giving the hours women spend using lotion, taking care of their hair, putting on make up and removing it and painting their nail, most of which I have long ago given up but I digress.  Anyway the man gave the hours the average woman spends in a life time doing each, I don't recall the specific amount for each, but the combined total hours was a year of their lives.  I was truly amazed at the time.  I am reluctant to say the time is wasted but I down deep I do think so.  I know that we all are allowed to spend our time as we please and it seems that a great many woman spend a lot of their lives in a futile endeavor.  Really, and if one year is the average how much time do the truly obsessed primpers  waste?  I wonder what things one could do with all that time?  I guess we all get to use our time as we see fit but I am thinking that some of that mirror time could be used in other manners.  I can't imagine that I will ever be able to look at a perfectly quaffed woman again, with a straight face, as she bewails her lack of time to get things done.  Okay, I did say painting was truly a mind numbing pursuit, but it does make we wonder what could be done in the lives of these perfectly pampered prima donnas? 

I have more painting to do today, teapots to rearrange and plans about tiling to make.  BBFC paperwork to prepare and get ready for tomorrow, so who knows what thinks I will think as I go about my day.  I hope the Lord calls to you in your life, I hope he gives you things to do that would help you decide to chose differently how to spend part of that year of your life on his praises and work.... tomorrow.
