Quick! Flip me a fish.
I managed to finish painting the shutters today! Lots of climbing up, climbing down to move the ladder (Mike and Andy did this for me), climb up again! It's hard work, people! This is my view as I was coming down the ladder after the last one was finished. Believe it or not, despite the ominous clouds, it never actually stormed here.
This was taken a few weeks ago - when I finished the front. Today I finished the back - just didn't take a picture. Used to be red, now the shutters are black. I think I'm the only one that notices but that's okay. It makes me happy - and, likely, very sore tomorrow.
