When I arrived home from work the painters were all over the place. Jose called to me to "come see the color!" so I walked with him around back. Speaking of color, I felt all of mine drain out of my face when I looked at what had been completed. He laughed as he watched me and said "thaaaat's just the primer coat." And politely left off "...you stupid Gringa." Oh ha ha ha, Jose. All the windows are covered in plastic right now and frankly, it's pretty creepy. But I'm excited the place is being painted.
The red pendant in the tiny hallway between the master bedroom and bathroom. We're aware it's kind of silly but we love it.
