I made some good headway on the old house painring project today. I sanded and made, generally, a huge mess. I ended up covered in dust. Those respirator masks are brilliant I tell you. I am working on two sides, already scraped, and I got a good deal of the way to sanding all of it when the sander busted. The pad that holds the sanding disks flew off, spinning into the oregano plants. That was the end of it.
I went into town and got a new pad, and some more sanding disks, and while I was at it a piece of lumber to replace one corner board on the garage. Rain started falling on the way home. This is turning out to be a slow project.
It keeps raining. We did have a clear day on Thursday, and yesterday it rained just for a brief shower. But it has been wet. Not ideal for an outdoor painting project. Maybe tomorrow will be dry again.
For now I will kick back with an adult beverage and wait. Summer is a time to get things done. It seems also to be a time for patience. I guess that means chilling for a bit. I can live with that.
