Rainy day stuff.....

 7:40 am - Thursday - September 24th - Seal Rock, OR - 59° F, 88% humidity, wind 9 mph out of the south......overcast and foggy this morning with a forecast high of 63°, and rain later this morning.  On this date in 2014 we were visiting a lighthouse in Bandon, OR with friends......↴


The forecast Wednesday was rain, rain, and more rain.  Fortunately, I had some inside work to do, and that involved painting some new shelving battleship gray.  The easiest way to paint something of this nature would be to spray it, but we do not have that kind of equipment here, so I painted them using a paint brush......it is slow, and ponderous, but what else do I have to do on a rainy day?  Of course, a little music wafting out of my Wonderboom bluetooth speaker, and the rain on the roof didn't hurt the mood a bit......

Unpainted unit

One shelf almost painted

......it took me most of my two hour shift to paint one unit, and I managed to get one shelf painted on the second one before I cleaned the paint brush, and headed for home....

I even painted a trim piece for Terry

.....TLE worked in the office from 9 am to 11 am, and was already home when I arrived in the rain an hour later.  At times during the afternoon the rain got quite torrential......


.....and it continued all afternoon just as the forecast had predicted.  Rainy days are perfect for curling up with a good book in front of our portable fireplace, and that is what we both chose to do.  I'm currently reading a series of 8 books written by William J. Johnstone about a fictitious bounty hunter named Luke Jensen.  If you like the Western genre you will like this series....I've read 6 of the 8 books so far, and they are difficult to put down.
