What's unfortunate is that it's been raining off-and-on for the past 2 days, and is supposed to continue that way for the next week or so. We've known the long-term forecast to lie, though, so there's always hope. It seems the forecast at Environment Canada is updated radically from one hour to the next. The radar is the only thing that doesn't lie, and we're getting good at figuring out just how much time we have until the next downpour.
Our corn, planted in the field behind the barn, likes the rain, but corn also likes hot days. It's 21C today, which can hardly be considered hot. But it's growing, and I guess that's the main thing.
Again, progress outside is touch-and-go. More projects, more lawn mowing, more clean-up. It all depends on the weather.
What doesn't depend on the weather is drywall. Eric's got another room, his office this time, drywalled, spackled and primed. Way to go, bay-bee:
...and like this:
Taping and mudding and sanding, (and mudding and sanding, and mudding and sanding) drywall is...how can I put this delicately? It is the least of our worries, when you consider what we've accomplished based on the above.
It's like going to a restaurant, ordering dessert, and when it's put in front of you, you give it to the dude at the next table.
