I spent last evening scrubbing walls in the new apartment – they are/were kinda gross. In the process I unearthed a few more previous paint colors: yellow, bright ochre, and a medium turquoise. Maybe the white isn’t so bad after all.
I made it all the way through Demolition by Ryan Adams, some Pulp, Tiny Cities by Sun Kil Moon, and some Natalie Merchant before Josh finished his homework and came to pick me up. I have to say that, after a couple of bad days at work, the scrubbing was rather cathartic. There’s just you, your music, and a problem that can be fixed with a sponge and enough water. That’s really nice sometimes.
Probably won’t post again before the weekend, but promise photos next week of newly-painted rooms next Monday.
