Paint paint paint paint and paint

The mysterious painter did show up yesterday, global burden of disease and is at this moment up in his big yellow bucket truck painting those bits of my house which I can not safely reach.  Which is awesome, except for the fact that it means I’ll be out there painting those bits that I can safely reach before the snow flies. 

We have learned that our house is sided with yellow pine.  This is good because “it lasts forever” due to a very high sap content but bad because it doesn’t hold onto paint as well as some woods might.  So we’ve noticed.

I’m up to the top border on Alpine Lace!  It’s only taken me forever and ever and ever! 

To finish my degree, I have to apply to be readmitted.  It also looks like I’ll be chosing a new advisor as the previous one was difficult to pin down.  This might mean that finishing this damned degree will take longer than I’ve anticipated, but at least it will be done.  I hope.   Maybe.  Someday.  Bleh.

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
