Nova have several new white spots in her fur. I too have gotten white spots and big areas around my cottage as well. I´ve been busy this morning since this is the only day for at least five days that it isn´t supposed to rain, which by the way was wrong 🙂 🙂
Well so far its just been a drizzle but it is rain just the same. I´ve been neglecting my little cottage way to long so today I scraped, washed, puttied and painted most of my windows and the kitchen door. I didn´t take those on the upper floor, I just hate standing on ladders and I really wanted to finish the bottom floor first.
I didn´t take the little window at the toilet because I forgot it and I didn´t take the windows by the entrance because I must replace two broken small glass parts before I paint those. I realized that I need to get a new window in the kitchen. The one I have will make it one, perhaps two more years but that´s it. I can try to repair it though but then I need to learn how to, so I might do that next summer. I also need a new kitchen door.
This one has no insulation in it so the cold slips in to my kitchen every winter if I don´t put something thick in the inside every winter. It´s in a not so good shape as well, so a new door is a need soon. We have at least one door at work, we make windows and doors as well and sometimes customers change their mind so we have a couple standing just waiting to be bought 🙂 It has the right color as well so I think I´ll take a little talk with the factory owner to see if I can get a good price on it 🙂
I think I need to repaint these windows and the door one more time, So I´ll do that as soon as we get a rain free day again. It started to drizzle as soon as I had finished painting and I have been hearing thunder almost all day. But I must forbid any kind of rain these coming six hours. After that the paint is dry enough and I don´t care any more 🙂 🙂 🙂
While I was painting I realized two things. The first thing was that the flies didn´t care about me?! I only got bitten once by a horse fly and the forest flies didn´t try to land in my ears or nose. I know they do disappear in a couple of weeks but I´m kind of hoping they already has started to die 🙂
The other thing I noticed was that there´s a wasp nest under the tiles not far from one of the windows I was painting. I needed to stand on the ladder to reach the upper parts of that window and I must have annoyed those wasp quite much while putting up the ladder. I don´t know how many they were but they filled the air around me but none did anything to me. But I can say it didn´t feel especially nice standing there 🙂 🙂 🙂
It is finally time for something to eat and then we´ll take a little walk in to the forest I think. I do hope the flies are starting to die but I´ll take no risk, I´ll bring my mosquito hat with me 🙂 Have a great day!
