Scraping and sanding at #2 daughter's house has been an adventure. Eugene is certainly not Southern California - of course I knew that, but it is still a surprise when the rain switches from light mist to downpour and then back again. It has forced me to work under the carport which is probably the easiest part of the house.
Albert and Miss Thing, the cats, have been very supportive, encouraging frequent breaks to rub furry little heads. I do miss Henry though. I dropped Stephanie's van off for repairs. While walking home did not stop to sniff even one bush! I paused to admire some of the spring gardens though. It was worth the stop even in the rain.
