mavis when she hasn’t had a bath

i think i have sanded my whole house.  who knew it would come to this?  i got this dirty just doing touch up on the fascia.  i was almost ready to paint when my eye was caught by a few more rough spots and i was off to the races with the sander.  (i have no self control.)


but i am glad to announce that it is now painted.  (with one more coat to go.  two more coats to go on all the window trim and one more coat to go on the whole house.)  that  should go relatively fast.  it’s the prep work that takes all day.  which i imagine you’ve heard before.  …i just don’t think you fully realize it until you try painting a house where the siding needs entirely reconstituted.  then it rings true.


fortunately i enjoy it.  except now it is cold and that doesn’t go over well.  if we have a few more warm days i’ll run out and finish it up.  it will be grand.
