I’m always happy to have an extra day off on the weekend. Labor Day is one of the few I actually take.
Last night I took a look at my September to-do list to try and decide what to tackle today.
I also took a look at the 10-day forecast which tells me that next weekend requires indoor projects since rain is predicted.
Today, while the conservatory is shaded I’ll paint the exterior walls with a brush.
On that same side of the house I’m going to ask Charlie to remove some of the major weeds and plant 4 of the hydrangea cuttings that have been rooted.
And I’ll give a second coat of paint to the side porch door. Hopefully that will be sufficient.
Then both the front and side door trim need one more coat of white paint.
Unfortunately before I can really get started on any of the painting I’ll need to clean the brushes that I put into paint brush cleaner yesterday evening. They were beginning to get gunked up near the ferrule.
This sounds like a full day.
Do you clean your paint brushes or throw them away?
