Summer at Exploits
Summer is in full swing here. The days are hot and sunny, replete with activity and the joy that comes with getting things done.
I spent most of the morning on the front of the house, scraping and painting it. I don’t think it has had a coat in twenty years, so there’s not so much scraping as there might otherwise have been.
The views in this post are all taken from precisely thr same spot, which I thought would make for an interesting post. I’ve always loved the view from this place; you can see everything that’s goin on in this neck of the harbour and up the bay.
The photo above shows the section of the house I was working on. I took this one just to see the contrast between the newly-stained section and the old.
The kids entertained themselves by making bows and arrows. Jasper also made a target and asked me to take this shot so that his mother can see how he has improved.
The painting ended for the day rather spectacularly, when the railing I leaned against gave way and my paint and I pitched off the deck and hit the rocks. Luckily I came away with only a banged up wrist and a face full of paint. Ah, the drama.
Tomorrow looks to be hot and sunny, so we’re going to put a real push on the painting.
