Checking Off an Overdue To-Do

Today was a day of chores, mostly outside, thanks to another stellar Phoenix day.

On the list of checked-off items: tree trimming, touching up baseboards, and the one thing I’ve been wanting to do since last fall: spray paint my sun-beaten landscape lights.

Out of the box, they were black but after about two summers of sun, they were … not black. So, a can of Krylon to the rescue.

Now, they’re Matte Coffee Bean and look brand new — and they match the lights in the front of the house.

This is one of those things that my Dad would have been excited about when I was a kid and I would wonder what the big deal is. Now I get it.

It’s the little things, stupid or not.
