Another day of some very sad news. DH's nephew committed suicide this morning. 24 years old and a shock to his parents (DH's brother). So so sad.
I have today off work. We had to go into the bank in the city to sign something. Also stopped at Home Depot to pick up some more masking tape and also got the little chrome vanity light for the shop bathroom. Then we went to Harbor Freight and DH picked up another little tool bag.
When we got to the property about noon, the builder and another guy were there working on the trim and siding. They had a little bit of the siding up next to one of the windows. They had started to paint the window trim. We had picked out a dark brown to go with garage doors...but, the siding dark brown (it's two tone wood grain look) is the same dark color and they felt it was too much dark brown. He felt we should change the trim to the lighter brown color in the siding and we agreed. We also decided to get the shakes that are pre-painted, rather than him painting them. They will last years and years and we won't have to be trying to paint shakes high up on our shop and house every 3 or so years. We are having him put in tongue and groove soffits and they had gotten started on that. I really like the stain he picked out for it. It looks so nice with the siding. Such a richer finished look to it with the tongue and groove boards.
I left DH out at the property and came home. I'll hang out here a couple hours before I go back. It's just too hot outside. I don't do well being outside in really hot weather (95 today). After I got home I called DD, who has today off because this was her 4/10 week at work. We had already been texting all morning, but I wanted to hear her voice and tell her I loved her (though she beat me to it!).
