Did I mention that I was painting today? The painting stage is kind of like a double edged sword, on the one hand, when you are at the painting stage you are at the, almost done, stage. But on the other hand you have to take a brush and paint primer on all the corners and edging, then you take a roller and do the rest of the walls/ceilings. Then you wait for it to dry. Then you take a brush and cut-in the edges with your colour, then you take a roller and do the rest of the walls/ceilings. Then you take a brush and cut-in the edges with your other colour, and then you take a roller and do the rest of the walls. Then you wait for it to dry. Then you start all over again with your second coat of colour. And if you happen to be a bit OCD this process may take awhile. That is my way of saying that I have been painting for the past week or so. Its a pain in the butt but I am liking the finished product.
Unfortunately after all the painting is done we will be laying some hardwood flooring. I say unfortunately because we happen to have all the flooring, but we happen to be using our cargo trailer for storage, which means that it is not in the house. So next week sometime we will have the joy of hauling a couple of tons of hardwood flooring into the house. Oh my aching back! oh my aching arms! Then we will get to lay all that hardwood flooring. Oh my aching knees! I'm sure that it will all be worth it but the thought of all that work is already making me tired.
Speaking of being tired, I have been using my new chainsaw and it has been making the whole, cutting the new road experience, a whole heck of a lot easier. I think I have about nine new piles of bucked up wood for next year's heating needs, and about two hundred meters of trail widened into a space which may eventually turn into a road.
