|The reno continues!|
We walked into the restaurant and the server lady told us they did not have food, so we ended up at the packed Mc Donalds for chicken nuggets instead (I had been craving them for days for some reason.) We remembered that we were going to pick up some more paint- the first coat took more than I had expected- so we went to Epi-Centre (one of the Home Depot kind of building chains here) and decided on another 10 liter pail, since the hall will need to be painted when the furnace work is finished. We had talked about buying tile on Sunday so I said we may as well look at it and we ended up with quite a pile of gray floor tiles in the back of the car, to use in the "big room" as soon as I get the beams painted.
Garry forgot to turn on the lights on the car until we were almost the the check point and the policeman pulled him over (lights are supposed to be on for highway driving in the winter half of the year all day in a new law passed last year) However, he never asked for money just showed him the law in the book. Garry always tell them that in Canada the car's daytime lights come on automatically, so he doesn't have to remember to turn them on.
By the time we got home, it was about 4:30 pm. Garry rolled another layer on the walls, while I made pizza dough and sauce. (Saturday night is Max and Andrei's favorite night of the week, pizza night) Then he grated cheese and chopped meat while I painted and the dough rose ( I am the brush and touch up painter) Then I came in and made pizzas, we had a few slices, and after all six were cooked, I went out to finish up painting. Garry had to go breed a cow, so I put the leftovers in the fridge (Jonah's cat Needles has no qualms about jumping up to eat people food, unlike Box.) After he got back he came in to check how it looked but I had a ways to go, cutting around all the beams and corners and heat pipes was time consuming. I noticed it smelled like smoke outside when I went back in the house to ask how he had opened pail # 2 which he'd used with the roller because I had finished off the first pail which I had up on the stepladder. I got it open- I had to pull harder- and got to work in the last corner of the room.

It's Sunday afternoon and I don't have to cook dinner, just warm up left over pizza. Garry wants to drive past Kiev this week to check out a corn planter for sale, and those beams and tiles are waiting for me. Good thing I am getting over the terrible cold I had this past week. I was glad we did not need to fly out of Ukraine, as I was feeling miserable on Monday and Tuesday!
