Tattle Tale Tuesday - My Mother Is Insane

This is what the trim on the side of the house looked like on Thursday.

This is what the trim looked like on Saturday.

This is what the trim looked like late yesterday afternoon.

All done. Even the side you can't see to the right.

The punch line is IT WAS 99 degrees yesterday. Mom actually worked on this entire side of the house all day yesterday in the horrible heat. She is INSANE, I tell you, INSANE.

Actually, she started at 8:30 and stopped at noon. She cut and painted some of the trim around 1:00 pm, decided that it was too hot to climb the ladder so she went and painted the bathroom window trim (which was in the shade).

After that she jumped in the neighbor's pool (fabulous neighbors BTW) and started up again around 4:00 pm. Ate dinner and went back out at 8:00 pm and finished it up.

Now, there is supposed to be decorative trim going from the roof line down to a point 3/4 down the trim, but at $2.85/liner foot, it will be a week or two before mom gets it. That side is about 20 something feet long and the two short sides are about 9 feet long.

Lucky and I were smart and stayed in the air conditioned living room. Mom is going to work tomorrow. I hope she takes it easy there, but I am not going to hold my breath.

Hi Roxy! You are so right - your mom is totally INSANE! I can't believe she was out working in that heat. My mom went hiking but it was only 93 degrees here. I, like you and Lucky, stayed in the nice air conditioned house. There's no way I'm going out to do anything in this heat!

It's hard to figure humans out. Why would they go out in hot weather and work when they can nap inside!
