It's hot out there so be sure and drink plenty of nectar while you are flitting about.
It's nine O'something in the morning and I am about to head out to do pre-house staining prep work.
This will basically "to draw in by creating a partial vacuum", but it must be done and the payoff will be a more efficient and better looking final product.
The good news is, Home Depot has a major rebate going on and the Behr Premium stain I want has a $20 rebate per 5 gallon bucket ... and I a will need a bunch of those.
I will be clipping and pulling plants away from the house, taking down some bad, and unneeded gutters, renailing a loose thingie here and there, fixing a couple of pieces of siding that are tired, power washing everything, and tackling all the unknown things that will pop up while I am doing the things I KNOW about.
I'll keep you posted on how it went.
