Boy! Am I getting tired of muggy and buggy.
I know Annette has had temperatures close to 100 at midnight in Northern California....
and Gayle in Alaska had temps in the low 90s for three weeks...and today it was 113 in Henderson, Nevada....but geeesh!
This morning Gary and I were finishing up our inside duties in preparation for Ariana when we got a knock on the kitchen door. For years, this man has stopped at our farm to see if he could paint our barns and we have said no. Today he lowered the price by $1500 because all the rain has cut off a lot of his business. We finally knuckled under and said yes. I sure would never expect Gary to paint the barns.
Within an hour his crew arrived and they were ready to start.
The horses were in for hours so they would not be in the way. I think they loved it.
We had to move a lot of stuff out of the way so they could get at all the walls. Not what we expected to be doing today.
Gary had to take down the garlic he was hanging on his barn porch.
I was able to pick a couple cups of berries in between all this activity.
I will be very happy to get things back together...wash the windows and do a little trim in white to match the house and indoor.
I can't tell you how thrilled I was to clean the stalls again before evening chores. The pee pots.
I guess this is my contribution to skywatch friday....so crazy around here I forgot all about it.
Already called the contractor about the paint job. Now that it is dry, the color mixing left a lot to be desired and he is supposed to come back on Monday to make it right. We shall see.
Ariana arrives tonight. Yey!
