Yesterday was spent about the same as the past few days. I worked on the painting project on the front porch and Al was back and forth between the gutter project and a multitude of other things. It's just too hot to be on the roof for too long at a time. He's having problems getting the gutter covers to fit and stay on properly.
We really need to do some mowing, but if I start that project, then the painting suffers. I decided to forget the mowing for a little while and concentrate on the painting. Al is getting worried...he's afraid I am going to quit liking to mow! With our commercial grade zero turn mower, I know I can get through the pasture, even if it's real high. I would rather be riding that mower around than painting any day, but mowing always needs doing and once I finish this painting project, it will be done!!! My goal is to finish as much of the painting as I can do while he is "on vacation" this week. I am not climbing up on a ladder to reach the really high stuff, so Al will do that part. I don't mind my scaffold, but I am not comfortable with heights.
My other project for this week is to work on the house inside. Unfortunately it has suffered while we've been working on the painting projects outside. We're trying to get at the point where we can have the house ready enough to at least get it listed. There is a lot of stuff that we can do after the fact, but we want to at least get it listed for now. We don't expect a lot of lookers due to the rural area we are in and the housing market.
We are hoping once we get it listed, and make some good progress with weeding out our treasures/junk/stuff, we can take a little camping trip. Of course we have no desire to go anywhere until it cools off a little. When we lived in Tampa, our camping trips started in October and for the most part ended around May. We would sometimes take a kayaking/camping trip to Silver River State Park in early June, but mostly we just did day trips during the hot summers. It's the same here...too hot to camp!
