Nice to work outside
on this October day,
with the river to watch
when we take short breaks.

A simple task,
painting the shed.
Slap on some paint,
spread evenly with roller or brush.
One color for the walls and door,
another for the trim.

We take the right amount of time
to get the job done.

We painted the shed at our cottage on the Potomac River in Coles Point, Virginia, this weekend. I like painting. It’s relaxing. It doesn’t require a lot of thought and it offers instant gratification. As soon as you put on the first bit of paint, you see improvement. And, because it doesn’t require much thought, it’s a great task for socializing.
