Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Early today I finished the painting inside our house. It is done---no more wall paper---nice clean walls---feels good to have it taken care of at least for now. There are other rooms that we need to do work on but I'm not starting anything new for a while. Here are a couple of pictures of the completed stair well after the pitures and the throw have been re-hung.

I am so tickled that we took all the paper off this wall and didn't dodge the high stuff---we thought about it but I am sure glad we didn't dodge it.

Sure am glad I have a little giant ladder though. Don't know how you would ever do stairs without one.

It really looks nice! The Irish people are crazy about wallpaper. They love big bold prints and the flocked wallpaper like we had back in the '60s. When they were building the house we are renting here, I looked at it before it was finished. I asked them if they were going to wallpaper it. She said yes, and I frowned. She asked me if I didn't want it wallpapered. I told her that in the States, wallpaper was basically "out" and I would prefer not to have the wallpaper. So they didn't put any in, and instead bought big paintings and hung them in every room. :0) I can deal with the paintings.
