It began the Wednesday before break. The trees in the yard had not even really started to change colors at this point.
Part one of fall painting project: I sanded, primed and repainted all the front porch railings. This began ten days before Thanksgiving. We already had everything we needed for this step.

and priming and painting bad spots on the gables. In this shot, you can see that we got to the sanding, priming and repainting of the green trim atop the porch. It looks so good.

Looking better already, with both of us getting the siding primed up ~
and painted (the only color that we had to buy. We still had plenty of green and peach from several years back, the last time we painted).
New siding pieces primed up, and then primed.
repainting front porch soffits. By this time, almost ten days later, those trees were finally changing those gorgeous colors of Autumn.
Front porch railings all primed up, plus some lovely fall color, just for fun. It was a gorgeous, 80 degree day, that week of Thanksgiving.
It feels great to have this done, and the house ready for winter. We even re-sealed some areas around the windows before priming/painting the trim to ensure a better finish. Next Spring/Summer: New roof!!
Now, on to Christmas projects. This time: Indoor craft projects and tasks.
