Sticky paint and trying to take advantage of our Indian summer

mailboxpaintandleaves121026This past week offered up the last of Indian summer unless something in the forecast changes and Brenda and I have appreciated the warmer weather, beautiful sunsets (driving by VOA park above) and evenings to work on projects.

Besides finishing the downspout and sump pump drain lines, I’ve also replaced and grouted the broken tiles around the pool (below) and “attempted” to paint the mailbox (cough, cough). Unfortunately, Brenda was also mowing the front yard … munching up a few leaves and pine needles … and the wind decided to test the stickiness of my fly-paper-like wet paint!  Hmm … looked like I’ll need a little steel wool and a second coat if dry weather returns?
