… or ever, it seems.

Painter got first coat on the front door. It’s a Ralph Lauren color, which HD doesn’t carry anymore, so I had to have it color-matched. Not sure they got it exactly. Maybe it will work better with the final coat. Right now it looks like something out of The Greeks. I keep expecting Clytemnestra to come sweeping out covered in blood.

Front Door with one coat of paint.

Bought new loppers yesterday and headed out to the side yard with them to do a little trimming at the shrub border with the house next door. Neighbor Matt got envious of all the fun I was having and went to fetch his trimmers and saw. Two hours later we had this. 😉
