Since we'll be having visitors over Easter we thought we should probably build some of these, so that our visitors didn't have to use the ingenious system of levers and pulleys that we have been using to get into the house*.

I even had the little man in to paint them. The husband even painted them, in fact we painted them together. But I was taking the photo, so you'll just have to believe me.

Then, immediately afterward it rained so we found a cover for them. Then we went down town as it seemed likely to rain for a bit.

When we came back, we painted them again. Immediately after it absolutely pissed down and stuffed up the paint job. I swear the Weather Gods heard the noise of the paint tin being opened. So this afternoon, the front steps got their third coat of paint. This time it didn't rain and there was much rejoicing.

* may bear no resemblance to reality.

It's good to see that our impending visit is being motivational for you.

We're even doing doors now. We needed a good kick start to actually do stuff again. It's too easy to sit on the lounge and watch TV.

It is great to observe somebody put enough craze towards a matter. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon this process. I am lucky I used the time to read on past the 1st paragraph. You have got a whole lot to say, very much to offer. I really hope guys understand this and look into your page.
