A Bit More Painting Done

I have now completed about 1/4 of the house. I got half of the front done today working behind Norma's rosebushes which I held out of the way with a stick as I avoided (unsuccessfully) the thorns. I only painted a little over half way up the walls as the paint nearer the top is fine for now. It gets partly shaded from the sun and rain by the overhang and does not get rubbed on or have things leaned on it up there. Once the paint is dry you will not be able to tell the difference between the new and the old paint.

I used to hate painting until I learned to buy the best paint available. It goes on much easier and covers better, even with only one coat, which is what it got today. I think I earned a day off tomorrow. And maybe a big order of take out fish & chips from Dave's tonight.
