I’ve been priming the exterior of an outbuilding, patching the holes left by gnawing squirrels, and reglazing windows that had to be a source of extreme winter misery for the  prior occupants. It’s only the recent fall weather that’s enabled me to do this. The  dry breezes tend to blow the volatile organic compounds away a little faster, or it seems like I’m able to breathe better, anyway.

I’m planning to blame my next few posts on toluene inhalation,  in any case.
