Watching Paint Dry...

Our house is getting on in years, and the outside of it has never been painted. Here is a photo that Emily took this past Winter :
House in Winter 2008

The garage to the right is new, and it clearly hasn't been painted, either.

Now that Summer is here, I have begun painting the house, starting with the Deck. Below you can see me mixing up a batch of linseed oil and turpentine, to give the bone-dry wood a good drink and fatten it up before I paint it :
Mixing linseed and turps.

The ratio I am using is three linseed to one turps.

And here is an image of the deck, sans impediminutiae :
Our deck.

Now if it would just stop raining long enough...
