it's a beautiful day in our neighborhood
Or it will be a beautiful day, once we get this stuff on our house. I'm sure our neighbors will shout gleefully, maybe even from their rooftops. We decided to go with Cypress Green siding and white trim. I couldn't be more thrilled, as you can see by the oh-so-flattering no-makeup-and-it's-been-a-long-day photo. Not sure if you can get an accurate idea of the actual color with this picture, but it's kind of a medium sage.
I also had a little "he-woman" time today as I ripped down some pieces of our previous siding. I always feel "so" powerful when I use manly tools like a hammer to accomplish something like that. It almost makes me feel like grunting victoriously. (go ahead and laugh...)
As a side note, I canned 6 quarts and 8 pints of pintos today. Just for the record, the smell does not stay in the jars. Needless to say, the house is airing out. For the weather IS beautiful today. Very much. I love this autumnal preview.
