And trimming around stuff hanging from the ceiling that you can barely reach, even when you are on scaffolding takes a very looonnngggg time.
But on Tuesday, March 15, I started priming the ceiling. Since we are painting the ceiling white, we had to prime it first. While I stood on scaffolding that day, my Pa would push me around.
It took all day and I only got half of the ceiling primed.
On Wednesday we decided to paint one wall. I wanted to make sure the primer was very dry, so I was giving the ceiling an extra day to dry. It's still cold in the evening and at night and I wasn't sure how long it would take to dry in cooler weather.
while Pa rolled.
while Pa pushed me around...again.
I told him not to make such a goofy face, that this was going on my blog, but he didn't care.
Friday they were working on the gables(?) Is that what they're called? The apex above the garage and the door. I didn't get a picture of inside the apex, it's very cute. It's lined with bead board type siding. I'll try to remember to get a pic.
So, yesterday was Saturday, the 19th, which will catch me up for the week. You know how you are having one of those days. Everything you pick up you drop, the house you live in is driving you crazy because it needs cleaned, but you've been gone all week, and you're tired....you get the idea. Twas not a good day. And Dave is working the weekend, so he's tired. And I'm tired from working harder than I usually work (blushing-but it's true) so we should have taken the day off. But we decided that I would paint and he would work on some electrical stuff while I was on the scaffolding, then he'd push me.
I know it doesn't look like a big deal, but it is. This is an expensive car, to us anyway, and we've kept it like brand new, and it busted the grill as well as the light. That grill is going to be expensive. It's big.
You can never get everything in one trip because it won't fit in the truck bed.
Then we decided to plant some trees that were given to us by some friends. They were sprouting, they needed planted, and it just helped our attitudes.
