Tuesday: Piano

Well, weather's definitely not nice, no possibility of any green sprouts poking anywhere (unless, under the snow banks...?). No way I can compete with wonderful exterior photos taken by my green week friends living in warmer areas. In Québec, in March, it's still winter (even with the warmer temperature of the last 2 days: 28F). I live my green week from the inside of my home, instead.

Next to my work table, is the piano. Green. Yes, yes, a green piano. Originally, when my parents bought it (some thirty years ago), it was brown. Dark. Very dark. Not really nice. First metamorphose: it was painted in yellow/beige to better fit my parents' living room decor.

The piano followed me when I move out and from yellow, I brought it to its second metamorphose (hurray for green!), almost 8 years ago.

Since last summer, I've been dreaming of painting it again. Metamorphose number three: white... A minor detail, I will have to peel off a few layers of paint before going on with the white. Big project. I wanted to do it last summer. Didn't do it. Maybe this summer then?

It's still winter here in Michigan too. There will be no green plants outdoors for me either. Do you enjoy the winters in Quebec?

I do like winters in Quebec, especially this year, there's lots of snow. Again, today, more than 8 inches of snow (and some more for the weekend!). It's really beautiful outside and I don't mind the cold too much. But I work from home, so...

a green piano!? so, so cool.

It's kind of cool alright!
Some people suggested me to turn it back to its original color. Blah, too ordinary, so not me... ;-)
