Podcast! Painting! Groceries! 9.4.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:53 pm  

There is some truth to this.

Two 100% days in a row. Astonishing.

Nueva palabra.


This ain’t right.


Mas dias!

I usually clean out my hummingbird feeders once a week. Sometimes more often if they drink all the juice.

I love those little birds so much.

I redid the notifications on my phone. I turned nearly everything off.

Deposited checks. PTL!

Went to Stone Mountain to record a podcast. It was a good one!

I also cancelled Showtime. There was a UFO show I enjoyed watching that JJ Abrams had produced.

The big project today was painting Jesse’s office.

I wiped down every surface to clean it from dust.

Vacuumed the room.

Scrubbed the stains with my heavy brush and Oxyclean. I cleaned all the carpet.

I covered the floor with plastic sheeting to protect the carpet before I painted.

I used a putty knife to shove the sheeting under the molding.

I put painter’s tape on the ceiling to protect it from paint.

The prep work takes almost as long as the painting! Cut in the corners.

I let the trim dry and went to Walmart to pick up my groceries. I don’t ever intend to do my grocery shopping myself any more. I’ll always do pick up. Today was one of the rare times that my order wasn’t ready. That’s only happened maybe three times out of over 150 pick ups!


Gorgeous sunset on the way home!

Came home and prepped the roller to do all the flat surfaces. I had almost exactly enough paint. I gave some areas a second and third coat.

Once everything is completely dry, I’ll take the painter’s tape down and pull the plastic sheeting up and throw it away.

I did a good job. I’m pretty picky about painting.

I’m really looking forward to going to downtown Atlanta tomorrow to see the Banksy exhibition. He’s my favorite artist.
