The wonders and woes of wallpaper

Hello. Well we went to the Remembrance Day Parade yesterday. They told us the parade went from the legion to the cenotaph, but what they didn't tell us is that the cenotaph is part of the leagion. So the parade was about ten steps long. It was great, though, it's really too bad we didn't bring the camera. It felt very much like a homey, small-town kind of thing, and there was a really good turnout. And the weather has been AMAZING for the last two days. You would hardly believe it's November. We went for a drive when we got back from the parade, up the North Mountain area. It was the perfect day for it, I got a couple of pics of that.

I also managed to get some pictures of birds at our feeder. I almost had the PERFECT bluejay shot, he turned full-profile, and flapped his wings, but the camera batteries died right that second! Isn't that always the way, I will have to sit at the dining room table until it happens again, but with full batteries this time!

Today all we did was wallpaper. We both decided we don't really like wallpapering. It's a lot of work, we were wet and slimy all day. And then we ran out of paper. I don't know how it happened, we thought we had extra. So it will be a couple of weeks before we can finish the last little bit of wall, because we have to go all the way back to Home Depot to get more paper. The nefarious bit of wall:

It does look really cool on the walls, though. We both keep staring at it, it's SUCH an improvement over what was there before, and it's a little bit mesmerising, as it changes depending on where you are in the room.

I'll post some more pics after we get the room a little more decked out (curtains hung, etc.)
