Painting Day

It's finally here!  Yesterday the two painters were here from 7:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. prepping the house for paint.  They power washed and then taped all the rails, trim, windows and doors-all except the back door so we would have an exit.  Of course it was the hottest day of the year so far.  It got up to 85F and we couldn't open a window.  It made for a hot night sleeping, that's for sure.  Then there was a windstorm during the night that threatend to undo all of their hard work.  And they were sure hard workers.

I was running around the backyard at 2:00 a.m., picking up pillows from the yard furniture and praying it wouldn't knock the ladders over!  All was well, and they were back at 6:30 a.m. to start painting.  Take a look...

 The back before any trimwork. 
I just took these about 10 minutes ago, so it's fairly up to date. 

I'll post finished pictures as soon as it's done so I'll be back soon.
