   needing paint in so many planes
Wednesday, July 11 2018
Today is the 20th anniversary of the day I met the person who would end up being called Bathtubgirl. It both seems like 20 years and also doesn't seem like 20 years.
Today I switched over to using roller brushes to apply sage green paint to the ceiling of the screened-in porch. This sped up the process both by increasing the swaths of surfaces painted and by allowing me to do everything from below (not having to climb around on ladders). While the presence of surfaces needing paint in so many planes (bottoms of rafters, sides of rafters, plywood between rafters, etc.) made the going rather slow, I got a large chunk of the job done.

This evening it was cool enough for me to take an actual bath in the bathtub.
