At the end of summer, I decided to do some last minute exterior house painting. Two walls were in rough shape and I really wanted to get them fixed up before the rainy season. So, I went gung-ho but the winter rains came faster than I could get it done. My plan shifted to covering the side of the house with a huge tarp in order to keep it dry so I could keep working on it.
As I laid out the tarp in the yard, Oliver and Pierre insisted on helping me get it all stretched out. It's hard to get good help, so I count myself blessed to have two such dedicated helpers!
Before I could get it hung, Oliver put his seal-of-approval on the tarp - he peed on it! Thanks Oliver! Argh!
The tarp did what it needed to do and with the help of one last dry weekend, I was able to plow through the last bit of priming and painting! It's ready for the winter and next summer I can go back and do a final coat on it all to keep it fresh.
