The scary part of today was this "Station" wildfire that is slowly moving in the direction of Acton which is next to Agua Dulce (where our new home is). We look to be okay but it's still very scary.. Let's hope everything works out.

Once at the house, we unloaded the truck and started painting by finishing up the window frame and the remaining wall in the TV Room. Once that was done I started taping off the Guest Room, while Harry did some touch-up work with the first 2 walls in the TV Room. We had planned to do the guest bathroom next but I decided that there would be less taping and I really wanted to get at least one room done.
While we were doing that, Mike, the Internet guy, stopped by to set up the Internet. He uses our hill side for a tower that feeds the valley below and because he uses our hill and electricity we get free internet. Once he was done we were eager to check out how fast the Internet was since he said it's faster then dial up but not quite as fast as DSL or Cable. This worried Harry and I but we were both surprised at the speed. One thing going for us was that we have our very own connection. So there are no other users on our line.
Once we both checked our Twitter we got back to work. Harry finished up the TV Room and I continued to tape off the guest room. The TV Room now has one complete coat, with exception to the area near the base board that had drywall damage. We have to let everything completely dry before putting on another coat. Harry then moved into the guest room and painted as I finished up the taping of baseboards. Once I was done there I helped with the trim work. We got the three walls covered with one coat (there is an accent wall that we did not do). But we were happy with our progress. We now know that painting is tough. It's tiring and take lots of patience and time. Well get it done.. might be a few weeks.. but will get it done and it will look great.

Wow.. what a day.. now that we got the house we want to paint and do some small construction remodels before we actually move in mid September. We planned to be on the road at 10am but I figured since we would be at the new house for the next few weeks the majority of the time that we needed to go food shopping. So instead of heading up to the house we went food shopping. After we got back and split up the groceries between our rental and our house we got back on the road. We also agreed that when we drive up we will always take a load of boxes with you.. so we loaded up Harry's truck, but before we could head north I have to go to Kim Evey's (The Guild) Producer and return the BTS camera I was using for shooting season three. Once we dropped off the camera we head up north to our new house. We got there around 1:30pm and unloaded the truck. We then had to make a trip to Lowe's (the closest hardware store) but first we wanted to teach Daisy about the doggie door that lead out to a small enclosed area for to do her business. Well she figured it out fairly quickly but our little "Houdini" also figured out how to squeeze through a gap at the top and get out which she attempted as we were leaving. So we had to leave in inside the house until we were able to block that exit.
We get to Lowe's and head to the paint department, we try and find the matching colors that we had picked up from Home Depot but couldn't find the exact colors (we had previously gone through the house and picked out colors for all the rooms). I remember that they can color match so we asked if they could match these color, they said of course and that it would take ten minutes. During this time we walked around and picked up other painting supplies like, rollers, brushes, etc...
By the time we got out of Lowe’s we were both starving and looked for something to eat. We found a Carls Jr. that was on our way home. We headed back home and were greeted by a totally overexcited Daisy. By the time we were done with our lunch and started working it was about 5 pm... where did the day go?? We pretty much knew that we wouldn’t finish the room, but we wanted to get as much as prep work done as possible. The first room we decided on painting was our TV Room. We went with a darker color called Butternut Wood but it looks more like a dark Olive Green. Both Harry and I really like it. We figure it's the TV room so a dark color would be best. There were these plastic strips that covered the cable running along the baseboard that we didn't want. So we went to pull them off. They were being held on by double stick tape and when pulled off took off some drywall as well. So I attempted to patch up some of the damage while Harry started taping off the six windows. I came to realize that my patch work wasn't going to work and that we would talk to our construction guy about fixing it so I started to paint, I wanted to a little paint on the walls to see what it looked like. I started with the Window surroundings. About and hour later we had to stop, because we ran out of daylight, we had 2 window frame painted. The day didn't go exactly as planned and we didn't get nearly as much done as I was hoping but it was still a great day working on improving OUR house. Can't get any better than that. Going back tomorrow and hoping to finish the TV Room and if were lucky our guest bathroom.
