My hard working man!

MM is re-surfacing our patio because some idiot past owner thought it would be cute to have dimples in the concrete.  WRONG.  Dimples hold water, which creates mildew that is sooo NOT attractive.

The light (now dry) area is what he did yesterday.  He is applying a thin coat of colored concrete (a concrete slurry) that is filling in those dimples and cracks.  The dark (wet) areas are today's work.  And tomorrow, he will continue on out a bit farther, as long as his knees and back hold out!

This is his practice area.  We have another lot here in the park that is rented out; said renters will be leaving this coming week, and he will then go work over there...where he has already pressure washed:

Not that it looks clean.

After the concrete is all cured, MM will apply a special paint to cover everything in a light brown color.

Then we will move the moho so that he can paint this spot...the same light brown color.

Got all that?

Did I also mention that MM HATES to paint?  Yes, he does.

At least this is a different kind of painting...not like he would have to be careful painting around windows and doors type of painting.  This is a slap it on kind of painting.  Check.  He can do this.

I will be the fetcher and water girl and push the roller helper in both projects.

We are a team...and we'll git-er-done.  And then go back to Mayberry.

Life is busy in windy paradise, y'all!

Yep, he's a hard worker and so are you. Sounds like we do things the same way. I hold stuff and fetch and bring water and a sandwich. We're good that way.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

That's a hefty project for sure. I know it will look waaaaay better.

My back hurts just thinking about it. srsly. In other news, popcorn ceilings and floral wallpaper. Who EVER thought those were good ideas?

Hope your wind dies down so you can enjoy the balance of your WPB vacay! If you can call all that work a vacay! ;)

big hugs xoxo
