Glorious October

Wow, October is shaping up to be a very nice month indeed.  At least weather wise anyway.  Okay, well Greg is painting and it is probably a little warmer than he prefers, but it is still nice.  It is in the low eighties and low humidity.  The nights are around 60.  The sun is shining bright and beautiful .  Perfect weather for a sunflower don’t you think?  I think so.

Someone once told us October was the best month in Louisiana.  I can see why.  Yes, it is still hurricane season, we have a few more months of that.  However, all the weather people say September is the worst month for that.  Luckily we have been spared so far.  We have just had a bit of rain.  No big deal.

About the painting.  The house is going to look so nice when it is done.   We changed themes and ended up going with a sand color for the body, a cream for the trim and then red/brown for accent.  Yes, it is kind of like the living room.  Oh well, if it works once, it should work again right?  It is cleaning up quite nicely and will have a lot of character when it is done.  I promise pictures of before and after.  It is slow going though, due to the wood siding, we have to hand brush every inch of the place.  We are on day three and still haven’t even completed one side of the house yet.  Hopefully today at least one side will be complete.

I have to head back to home depot for more paint.  It is a good 40 miles from here.  I hope they have what we need.
