I woke up just before the alarm was set to start by a sound I really can’t say what it was. It was really loud and could be anything from a military plane to a car with a broken muffler. I doubt that it was a car since the sound came from the forest and passed by towards the village and very few cars drive around here before 5 am 🙂 What ever it was had passed before I really was awake though so I’ll never know what it was I guess.
Why did I set the alarm You might wonder, well every six months I need to wash the paint box with stronger stuff than distilled water which I do once every week (the box is made from some kind of plastic and the powder paint has a hard time sticking to it) and I had long ago decided today was the day I was going to use stronger stuff since there isn’t any production going on there for three weeks now. Lots of maintenance work is done though so I wasn’t alone in the factory. Normally I use methylated spirit but this time I wanted to try something much stronger, Thinner.
I’ve never used that before so I just tried it in a few rather big spots and I won’t know the result until we start working in three weeks. I could however see a huge difference in how clean the places became, so my guess is that I’ll use only thinner the next time I’ll clean the box sometime around Christmas. The thinner smells a lot though so no one else can really work in the painting department while I’m doing it. I wasn’t at work for long, three hours or slightly less but instead of having five vacation days left to use I now have six 🙂
I can feel that the cold hasn’t left my body at all, cleaning the paint box is anything but hard but I sweated something awful and now my entire body aches 🙂 🙂 I do feel much better otherwise though so it is going the right way. I just learned that I had given this cold to a work friend too, he had just come back from a disc surgery, where he almost bled to death. One can say a lot about me but I always share what I have to others 🙂
We’ve had a rather nice day here, lots of clouds in the sky but also lots of cracks between them where the sun has been able to shine down to the earth. A slightly too weak wind has also been blowing so a few flies have found us and annoyed us on our walks. Still it could have been worse, the humidity has been very low today.
I can already now feel that it’ll be an early night and I won’t do much until I’ll go to bed.
Have a great day!
