I personally declare spring to be officially here. I have seen my first flower of the season. Trees are budding out all over town.
I didn’t say it was a pretty flower or that this is a good photo…just the first one this spring. Haha!
The rain simply will not cease. I love the rain, clouds and perfect temps. The humidity and mud that comes with it…not so much.
It is a river! A tiny, impromptu one in the ditch! Do you see how green the ground looks though? Spring!
Oh hello…time for the dehumidifier to go back to work!
I do have hopes the rain will pause, and in such hopes I have placed an order for supplies for the next TinCan project: Bath time!
On the way are: Simple Green Car Wash, Simple Green Lime Scale Remover, Streak Master Aluminum Cleaner & Brightner, a new water hose, a water connection splitter (so I can connect the TinCan and have a hose for exterior use connected), thread tape, and magic erasers.* I have not used the listed products except for magic erasers, but I’ve read some reviews and forums recommending them. I hope they live up to the reviews. The goal is to get this big TinCan clean and then to get her shiny. I will also be ordering Dicor Metal Roof coating for the top of the TinCan. I originally planned to polish the roof, but the aluminum doesn’t seem to be quite as strong or in as good of condition on the roof. It isn’t too bad, but it was not going to be easy to polish it. Then I saw this coating used on one of Hofmann Architecture’s Airstream renovations posted on Instagram by @airstreamrenovator (who by the way has a great feed on IG…if you don’t already follow him). The roof looked great, so I asked for more information. Thanks to the responses, I’ve decided it’s the route I’m going to go. It looks good, and they say it is relatively easy to apply. It seals the seams and rivets on the roof and is supposed to reflect off some the heat in the summer. Sounds like a good thing to me. Now for the rain to stop and let me clean, polish and paint. Woohoo! I’m excited and tired already from just thinking about it. Maybe I will just make a big bowl of popcorn and rest a bit while the rain comes down. (My sister taught me how to make fresh popcorn on the stove. Why have I never done this before? It’s healthier and delicious.)
What projects do you have in mind for this spring? I’d love to hear about them.
