Visiting the parents is often a stressful time. Despite their incessantly busy schedules, they have actually learned to relax in retirement despite their hectic lifestyle. I visited them two weekends ago now. Hence the absence of an August 17 radio show recap; there was none. Instead, I participated in my brother’s wedding.
I had Friday off and ended up spending most of the day sanding down cabinets. They came out looking great; a natural light pine distressed with a hint of dark stain peeping through. Ultimately they will get two light coats of matte brown followed by white paint and distressed lightly.
Give “John From New York” by Pan a listen. It’ll only take one. I’d suspect you’ll probably have the same reaction I did: it gave me butterflies. I was instantly in love, and I knew it would dominate my playlist for the remainder of the year.
