Blue roof - Red trim - Grey surfeit

Hump day! Actually the concept no longer has much meaning - no 9-5 job about which to complain. Only mossies after 4 p.m.

We will sleep tonight with our newly installed window open! Lovely - means we'll certainly hear the 2:30 a.m. train wail as it flashes through town. The honking Canadian geese chatter all night on Stony Run. We'll hear them, too, which is important for they will soon be V - ing south to warmer climes.

The north side of the house is painted - both coats with a startling red trim lined in by the Aussie bloke who has a much steadier hand than I. Will take pics tomorrow and include in the blog notes. The kitchen window still needs to be lined in. And then it will be perfect. Have to admit that the final five boards were painted with my right hand while my left was wildly waving mossies away - not sure just how well those chamfers are painted. Will check them in the morning.

Life is good! Both of us feel accomplished! Wise to have a project to which we can both contribute.
