I am normally a pretty neat person. The one thing I cannot seem to do neatly is paint or anything related to painting. I began the process of water proofing and sealing our deck after having it power washed today. The process should be relatively simple. You put the sealer/stain in an ordinary garden sprayer and just spray it on the wood. OK-PEOPLE-I AM USING A SPRAYER-not a paintbrush, so I should be a few feet away from the liquid being applied. Somehow-I STILL managed to get the stuff on my legs & feet. I have noticed when the painters were here-they NEVER have paint on their hands, clothes, face and any other part of their person. I tend to get it on everything-start on the hair and work down. Not sure what is wrong with my technique-but I lack finesse! The good thing is that my feet and lower legs now will repel water and have a nice cedar stain color.
I tried a new recipe from "Cooking Light" tonight and we both thought is was quite tasty. Easy and healthy-What more can you ask. If you would like the recipe-let me know.

When watering tonight, I noticed this Day Lily had opened up. Isn't that beautiful? Last year we had a wet June and I did hardly any watering. This June has proven to be dry already. Not a good sign for things to come.

When I finished my 5 mile run this AM, I told my buddies I would be returning to PA and would be back about October. When it is 76 degrees and 90% humidity at 5:30 AM, it does not make for a fun run! We walked 2 miles after our run to try and cool down. OK-NOW that sounds ridiculous-trying to cool down in the steamy hot air-but you get my drift. We had 9 people show up for our run. A GREAT group!

Maybe the stain will work as a self-tanner?
