I was a little too optimistic before the holidays thinking I’d see the first stroke of color outside by now. But I know it will eventually get done and get done well, so I’m trying to remain patient. Today there’s only one painter here, but it appears he’s doing THE final prep work. I tried to ask him if he would be painting today, and although my Spanish is truly terrible, I think he said something about “manana” and “mejor”. I’m choosing to interpret “tomorrow” and “better” as “tomorrow, the full crew will be here to begin painting the body of the house your obsessively chosen 75% lavender blue color."
