After a short, but wonderful reprieve, it was back to house projects. While the weather was still nice we spent a lot of evenings outside pulling weeds and scraping and painting the siding to prep for the winter rains. We're not planning to paint until next summer, but there were a lot of patches of peeling paint on the south side of the house that needed to be primed so that the exposed wood siding wouldn't rot.
The house has a lot of white spots all over it now. The neighbors love it!
