Okay, I need a domestic day…

The weatherman says I’m in for some actual weather which basically means I may have one nice day left. And I’m really in painting mode here…

porch
We did get a little front come through at mid-day yesterday with random shotgun-blast gusts of wind and maybe 22 drops of rain per acre, but then it got clear and still again. So I was able to do my second coat on the porch railing, and I do hope to actually assemble the whole thing today. But…

breakfast
…That’s the last of my bread, so I need a baking day, and…

laundry
Neighbor L is out of state for two weeks, which means I’m on my own for laundry. I’m unable to buy new stump socks last month and this, so I’m no longer ahead of schedule on the Acquire New Stump Socks project, and I’m running low. With the possibility of bad weather over the weekend, letting myself run dry on clean spares would be the perfect way to bring a heavy monsoon down on my head. Murphy is out there. Waiting. And hand laundry is going to take like two hours out of my day right there, in addition to chicken chores and going to Neighbor L’s to water plants and doing all the other usual stuff that keep the wheels on.

Guess what I’m saying is that while I do hope to finish the porch railing today, it’s not going to be a painting day even though my weather window might be closing for a while. I need this day for other things.
