And by “we” I mean we hired someone to paint. Fully intending on doing it ourselves and with the Looooooong list of other things we are trying to get done this Summer we have vended this task out.
Now, don’t get me wrong, that leaves us plenty of things to get done first. We picked up the paint this weekend and got it all home. This morning we were up at 6:00 a.m. and in the yard cutting back plants near the South side of the house so they can have access.
We chose 6:00 a.m. because it was almost too hot by 7:30 and we both had workouts to get to after that. We were cutting back the fire-sticks and they ooze this poisonous white sap that is a major skin irritant.
Because I was sweating so much from my face, I kept wiping with the inside of my T-shirt, but I ended up with both eyes having a red “burn” area and all around my mouth.
I was really trying not to touch my face, hence using the inside of my shirt collar but it was so hot and my face was sweating so much I joked that I alone was the cause for the high humidity level today.
We have some things to move like the kitty condo which will happen on Friday when they come to power wash.
I failed to get any pictures of the stuff we cut back today, but I will surely get before and after of the house.
