Weather report: Sunny, dry, and warm

How often does that happen these days in New England? Oh, and how often does a weather report like that coincide with a day off for Michael and me and a day at camp for Hyla?

This could mean only one thing….

Exterior painting!

We did a first coat of the back of the house yesterday (the walls along the deck and porch):

BackPaintJuly3

PorchPaint2July3

PorchPaint1July3

Still to do:

Side-July3

Front-July3

We’ll probably hire a professional painter to do the very highest stuff (someone with a big ladder and a brave soul), but we’ll easily be able to do the majority of what you see in these pictures.

If only the weather would stay nice. The forecast for today, July 4, is scattered thunderstorms, “possibly severe this afternoon”. Probably not a day to be on a ladder.
