making hay

The weather has been absolutely beautiful lately. Instead of doing something fun, we did an improvement project. We were supposed to do this project in the spring, but things kind of got away from us.

The stairs leading to the front door of our rental property needed some work, so we’ve been working on that intermittently over the past week. The stairs are concrete and were painted at one point, but most recently were covered with carpeting, which was getting pretty worn. I didn’t want to do carpeting again, so we removed the old stuff and scraped up as much of the paint and glue as possible. Yesterday, I patched some spots and today we painted. I would have preferred to have gone for a motorcycle ride because surely this weather isn’t going to persist, but what can you do?
