He painted 1/2 of the first coat over the weekend. Although he also did several other jobs, at this rate it will take him about a month to do this area. He finds standing on an extension ladder for more than a few hours very hard.
(You can't see it on this picture, but the ground is rough and sloped where the bottom of the ladder stands.)
There will be painting down below, but I hope to put that off as long as possible. Spiders!
In addition to painting, Craig did the second round of weed-eating on the entire property (usually takes 2 weekends!) And cleared out a couple years of leaves and debris that had built up against the road side wall of the attached garages.
Thats our new roof!
While blowing the leaves across the driveway, he exposed this little critter. We have been here for over 22 years and this is only the third one I've seen. He must have been happily living under the old moldering leaves.
Today I took the morning off and went to the 24 hour fitness. Did 3 miles on the treadmill, went in the pool for awhile and enjoyed the hot tub! Painted just a little this afternoon.
497 days, or 1 year, 4 months, 10 days to go.
1000 miles on the treadmill, 3 miles today
Total walked = 170 miles
Someday I will be hiking 1000 miles in National Parks!
Time spent Painting the House: (This is not a contest, Craig is doing a lot of other things)
Me: 2 hours today Total = 32 hours
Craig: Total = 7 hours
