One of the drawbacks to renting a house and boarding the horses
is that I'm not getting much exercise.
I could join the Y (amazingly there is one!) or a yoga class
but I've always preferred gardening and stall cleaning
as my exercise methods of choice.

So when we began painting this weekend, it was a shock to the old muscles!
|Long Hall in the Basement|
also BM Carrington Beige
We've finished at least the first coat on all ceilings in the basement,
and most of the walls down there have their first coat.
The third member of the paint crew, Attagirl, feels that painting is way overrated
and would rather be outside chasing rabbits!
Our division of labor is that I do all of the cutting in and brush work
and Joe sticks to rolling.
So for me it means up and down,
and up and down the ladder hundreds of times.

The scaffolding in the study
was too big to fit in any of the other basement areas
without too much bother disassembling it to get through doorways.
But it sure felt good to be working on the house ourselves!
