First color coat upstairs. More primer tomorrow. Shares much needed.

Still no pix; still can't get this issue fixed.  Maybe tomorrow.

I actually did have something to show tonight, too; I painted the base coat in the upstairs bath today, the first coat of color. Tomorrow, we're switching to priming the bedroom, to ensure that the semi-gloss charcoal color can dry thoroughly, and then Wednesday I'll begin on the second color coat, the so-called "faux finish." There'll be another color coat to come, but the paint had to be ordered; our local store is too small to keep it in stock (although they have an amazing array of regular shades).

Meanwhile, we desperately need to make sales, and we also need shares:
  • Shares of our YouCaring page via the widgets provided, especially the widget code, which has once again been moved back to the purple box at the lower right-hand side of the page, that produces the image shown just above.
  • Shares of Wings's site; sales also fund the construction (indeed, they are the baseline for it). Testimonials help.
  • I've added Lowe's gift cards to our Amazon wishlist. We're having to spring for lumber, lath, and plaster material locally. The rest of what makes it habitable — flooring, paint, appliances, etc. — are coming from Lowe's, which is giving us the best selection and price, and therefore best bang for our buck, but it's still a lot. A LOT. And so one of the best, most immediate ways to help at this point is with Lowe's gift cards. I have three separate denominations posted on the wishlist, but cards in any amount whatsoever are useful; they all go into the same pool. We're going to have to take care of the flooring very, very soon.
Still, before you share our links, please go share Laura's. Lin's spirit is where the water meets the light, but Laura will still need our help for a while. Please T/R/share/donate to her fund if you can. Especially that last. It's needed.

In the meantime, please also take a moment to share the links above.

Thanks, everyone.
