Irons in the fire??…….then youre painting your buddies place.
Without any big explanation, Ive been painting my friends place over the past week. Nice to do outdoors and with the good weather lately. Returning to a trade I left some years ago (meaning: painting for cash on the side), it actually has been quite nice to be working on a project for a few runs in the sun.
I wished I took a picture of the before and after but alas I didnt. It is coming together and looks good. Spent 3 days on trim and prep, 2 days on painting………using a sprayer – and thus the skill for which I landed the gig. Last, shutters and door, and done in the next day or two.
While working, something I gained appreciation for: CBC 99.1 morning radio.
Something on radio that upset me: Edge 102 playing the same list of 102 “best ever” songs each day….SamE! SongS! each day….and that meant OurladyPeace 5 times in the playlist (thanks Canadian Content)…..hip 5 songs as well, which was fine with me.
How to turn your effort to your advantage: have wifi avaialable and have a look on a break or lunch. Send a couple emails or quotes and youre essentially working from anywhere. Balance two or three things at once……it means youre never not working………but then again, maybe youre never really working….but for sure at least youre enjoying it.
On to the next one. I looked at the neighbours place next door…..it could certainly use the work as well………it would look tip top with a bit of effort, with me doing it. Projects like these I like to spin into another…….it really is a nice gig.
