This weekend we worked on painting the house.
I can tell you...if it isn't me procrastinating then it's just life in general slowing the progress of things around this 4 acre homestead.
Some of you (especially new followers) may not know that we started painting the back of the house in the Fall of 2011-- Honey was recovering from a triple bypass and going stir crazy to get outside and work.
We had some siding that need replacing...and this is as far as we got with the job... Well, we finished putting the lower boards up and got the A/C put back in the window...
And it's been like that until this weekend.
This is my in progress picture... filtered by a lovely Crepe Myrtle tree!
I wanted to show you the difference in paint color. You can see the North side that isn't painted and the West side...with the new paint. Autumn Fog by: Valspar
Earlier in the summer, I showed you this picture of our porch
You can see just under the Fern...against the wall there is a plywood box on the wall...it covers the wiring. It's been like that for about 2 years!
I got it all painted but didn't paint to the left of it until today...
We still have to paint the NORTH and SOUTH sides of the house... ALL THE TRIM, RAILS, POSTS and Awnings. It's Slow going... with a 3 inch brush!!!
Yes, we are doing this 3 inches at a time. Slow and steady wins the race.
It's times like these that make me GLAD to be a SMALL HOUSE OCCUPANT!!
Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart. ~Psalm 37:4
