I am trying to finish my painting project. The weather changed suddenly from a warm and dry day yesterday (26C, ~79F) to a wet chilly miserable rainy today (17C, ~63F). With the humidity level of 93% right now, I guess I have enough excuse to stop the painting temporarily . Like this, I could rest my hurt back with a clear conscience while waiting for the rain to stop... (I could always turn on the heater later to reduce the humidity I guess.) At least I managed to fix up the painting in our lounge room yesterday, plus did one primer coat for the adjacent room (just the panel closest to the ceiling where the builders needed to do some surgery to the structure while doing the extension a year ago). Are you using any excuse right now to get out of doing something? (My back truly hurts! ) ---- Image from pixabay

After one year not painting, I had to chuck out quite a few paint pots which I didn't close the lids good enough. Once finished with the painting, I am going to move the unused paint pots to the shed (my kitchen is a mess because of those paint pots).
I did take a break before returning to painting. And surprised surprised... my back seemed to be much better (and I could paint faster because of that! except that I began to have vertigo while standing on the ladder! Good news, I finished with all the high spots now - unless I re-do my daughter's dancing room! )
I wish... No, this is painting some ceiling & wall sections (have to, since the leaking roofs in the past had discolored the former, and the builders while extending the house left sections of the walls with brand new plasters which needed to be painted!)
@ChesneyM No unfortunately. In my country, electricity is gets very expensive in summer. Because of the generation costs. I'd only wish the Philippines also has snow. Or at least winter season. It doesnt have to be really snowy but at least cold.
