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

I am pretty sure it is unused muscles but I have been painting the bedroom this week and every single thing in there required two coats of paint to cover the walls. It was wall papered and never really painted---it was primed before they put up the wall paper thank goodness. Inklings pulled most of the paper off a few months ago but we got sick and then kept putting it off after we got better. I still have the ceiling left to paint but all the edging is done---so all that is left is to roll the paint on the ceiling. But SORE---my legs feel like they are on fire from climbing up and down on the chair a thousand times a day---they hurt like H E _ _.

I also replaced the lights in our bathroom. We went shopping and decided to look for a light set that we liked to replace the old hanging lights in there. We found one on sale for $7.50---reduced from $52.95---so we bought it. The guy that was helping us said they had stopped carrying that model and if we wanted the floor display he would take it down and give it to us at the advertised price. We loved the light set so we bought it. I tore out the old one and repaired and painted the ceiling and mounted the new lights. It is really nice. I could not believe we saved $45.00. It is a nice set for less than $8.00 and that included the light bulbs.
