Oh man. I’m in trouble. I have yet to paint an entire side of my house and I’m freaking out! I have four full days left which means I need to finish one side a day. Yikes!
At the end of day 3 I was sure I’d get this side of the house done on day 4. I ended up spending all of that day on this:
Painting all of those pipes and cords took hours. I had to use a tiny little art brush to get into all the nooks and crannies. It was worth it because it looks much better but I’m sad that I lost a whole day of painting!
I did climb up on the roof of my closet to wash the eave on day 4. I had plans to paint it on that day too but then the thunder and lightning started and I didn’t think it was a good idea to be on a metal roof once the rain started coming down. Henry agreed that it wasn’t safe!
Yesterday I got rained out of painting so I checked the weather for today to see what I should expect. The forecast said rain in the morning and I thought things were finally going my way. I had an interview at 9AM which is around when the rain started. The sky still looked ominous when I got out of the interview so I met a friend for lunch. For a minute it looked like it would be dry for a couple of hours so I tried to finish this tiny wall of my closet. Ha! I got all the edges done along with the very top board and several on the bottom before I started feeling raindrops. I’m four measly boards short of having this wall finished. So frustrating!
So, tomorrow I NEED to get the closet finished and this side. I’m so looking forward to these long stretches that I can just roll out. That cutting in takes a lot of time!
The good news is I finished washing the whole house yesterday (in a light drizzle) so once I get a day of sunshine I should be able to knock this out quickly!
