Good afternoon everyone on this cool and rainy Tuesday. I had one of those days the other day. You know the kind. When things just don’t seem to go right. However, when I look at it afterward, it really is funny. Like this one. It really got me laughing just thinking about what happened and what it must have looked like. What did my facial expression look like? That sort of thing. So, speaking of painting. I wanted to paint a bird house. Well, it was mostly painted already. Just needed a few details done to it. The sun was shining that day and it was warm enough on the deck for painting. And it’s safer to paint outside than inside. Normally.
So I opened the can of paint. Carefully. I thought. It was a small can of paint. As I pried the lid off, it flipped up. I tried to catch it. Why, I’m not sure. I grabbed the lid and of course got paint on my hand. In the process of doing this, I knocked the paint can off the little table I was using. I naturally grabbed for the paint can. And stuck my fingers in the paint. Now I have paint on both hands. I didn’t bring a rag out with me. So I wiped my one hand on my shirt. Forgot this was not the shirt I used for painting. It is now.
A mosquito landed on my face. That is not allowed. Anywhere else is fine. But not my face. So I swatted the mosquito. Got paint on my face. I decided to wash my hands before doing any more. Got paint on the doorknob. Should have used my other hand that I had wiped on my shirt. Muffin is watching this from her chair by the door. As I come in my foot catches on the chair leg. Almost knock it over. Muffin goes flying. I almost join her. I grab the chair. Now there is paint on the chair.
Forgot about that. Should have left it alone. The chair wouldn’t have fallen over anyway. So there is a lot of paint going in places it is not supposed to go. And nothing where it should be going. Which was just a little bit of detail painting on that birdhouse. This is not a birdhouse to be used by birds. It’s a table decoration. If I ever get it painted.
When I finally got everything cleaned up and got back to the birdhouse, I found that some of the paint had spilled on it as well. So I had to repaint that side. So I had to wait for another day to finish what I started to do but never did do. One of those days, that’s all. But I have to admit, it’s funny. Just thinking about it all. I hope everyone has a great day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
