Painting for Curb Appeal

After work today we had plans to paint our front door a dark gray. It is always best to use a spray gun for doors in my opinion. The sprayer I bought is great for large jobs, but overkill for small jobs like this. The other night when we helped the Bonhams sand and paint some tables I noticed he had a smaller sprayer that I thought would be perfect for the task so I called and asked if I could borrow it. Of course he said yes. They are such a...

Mastermind Meeting

It helps me focus on next steps and what may be the most important action items to work on. So far our mastermind consists of just the two of us and I’m fine with that. We may expand it in the future but frankly it didn’t even come up...

I figured as long as I was in the position I might as...

Family Night Service

We had a family home evening lesson on Patriarchal blessings tonight. It was basically drawn from random out of our bag, but it was nice to try to explain it to the kids. At 7:00 we went to the Bonham’s house with the bishopric and all our families to help sand and paint some tables. They are preparing for their daughter’s wedding on the 13th of August. I took my sanders and my paint sprayer. My sprayer made quick work of a couple...
