Saturday Painting Party

I woke up with a terrible headache at 5:30 this morning.  How come I get headaches when I can't use my sick days?  I took some sinus medicine and let my old dog outside so that he wouldn't wake me up in an hour.  The phone rang at 9:40 and it was my mother asking me if I wanted to share the vegetables that she got at the Market on the Move event which gives people 60 pounds of produce for $10.  I'm glad someone was having a productive morning.  My headache was much better so I got up and fed everyone.

Mom came up at 11:30 and we loaded up the truck with paint, ladders, and water, ready to tackle painting the shed.  The clippers broke when I tried to clear the shrubs from the area.  The cactus just laughed at me.  We worked for around 3 1/2 hours and got one coat on it except for some of the edges which need a brush.  I was tired of painting by 4pm so we packed up and went home.  It will take another Saturday to finish it up if Mom is willing to help again.  Luckily, there were no injuries, just some paint splatter on clothing.  I am thrilled that we got so much done today.  Thanks, Mom!

Aside from the headache that sounds like a thoroughly lovely day. Nice for mum yo having something to do and someone to do it with as well.

Yes and the weather cooperated too. We are planning another shed painting party this Saturday if the weather continues to cooperate.
