Headed for Bed

Well, I DEFINITELY feel like I accomplished something today!

I started at 8 this morning, had a pop and some water on occasion, took 15 minutes to eat most of a sandwich, and went back out and finished painting my garage!  The upper half.  That entailed moving/climbing/repositioning and painting from the extension ladder.

Whew.

Holding that little sprayer out at arm’s length is harder once you’ve been at it a few hours.

Actually, there’s a bit to do, but I decided we’d get the tractor and loader in for that… leaning *backwards* while the extension ladder is almost fully extended and I’m up HIGH (higher than I wanted to be…) to paint the edge trim just WAS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

My house will be next, but I might wait a bit.  Wait for my muscles to recover and the bruises from leaning and climbing the ladder to disappear!

Did I take photos?  No.

It took me an hour to clean the sprayer… and 30 minutes to try to scrub myself down with paint thinner and then a shower (and I still have paint on me!).  That tshirt is probably a rag now…

Victoria and the twins arrived just as I was putting things away… We have a trip scheduled for tomorrow… so, I’ll post some wedding photos to keep you occupied while we’re away!

Go ahead and leave any questions for this month’s Q&A session in the comments.  Me and my advil… we’re headed for bed.

  1. Carol, Use Cooking oil to remove the paint off of YOU! Much easier and gentler on skin and Hair! works better too!
    (Yes it works on oil paint or stain) I have used it for years (we do contracting and I found this tip in an old book I purchased at an auction years ago) Kay
