Adventures in painting

Some of the fun (that's what we'll call it for now) that comes with owning an older home means that you have tons of work to do before it's ready to list. One of the most fun things we're doing is pitching/giving away stuff that we don't need, putting what we don't need right away in storage, chipping away loose paint and cement, filling the cracks, and re-painting the floor and walls with waterproofing paint.

We've been doing it in stages, not only for our own mental health, but so that the cement patch can cure and paint can adhere, that kinda fun stuff.

Yesterday while I spruced the upstairs up, Dave worked on painting one of the last sections of the basement.

Scarlett came upstairs to visit, and I picked her up for a snuggle, and lo and behold her paws were COVERED in white paint.

I spent the next half hour cutting away fur that was laden with paint, while she growled, hissed, grumbled, and squirmed constantly. What a little monkey.

Aaah! That's the sort of thing I live in fear of. She's gorgy, though...
