This week I created me a staycation, guised under "study week", nothing wrong with that, I did get 15 CMEs in three hours from 0400hours on. Then I got bored after family left for work and school.

So I went out and cleaned out a lot of dead flowers (wife made me), cut an old tree, carried xxxx to the junk woods and socialized with the redneck gang mowing my professional neighbor's lawn after I also mowed ours, their weekend boozing and proletarian female stories from a parallel universe:)

Still a lot of energy, that's what I get after a bowl of 30g of unprocessed cocoa in hot water and two Mokha Mataris from my piston lever espresso machine.

So I got to it:
1. Double pail bucket wash x2 with coconot oil based shampoo and soft mittens, wash mittens after each surface, start top, then mid-section, then bottom.
2. Clay bar and solution, scrub scrub, aaah the satifsfying smothness after it picked out all the gunk. Fxxx, I am hand claudicating already from messing with the sticky putty.
3. Klasse synthetic wax, dry, buff it up with the P-C orbital lowest speed, softest pad.
4. One hour in sun.
5. Carnauba, dry, hand polish.

Now I feel complete, reminds me of B.C. (before children) times when I did it every three months. U kidding me, between the sports and activities poor Ted (my MS) is lucky to get this once a year before winter.

OMFG, paint now looks like 'tis flowing off the car. Aouch 15:15hours, gotta run pick up the runt from school, I hate dusty roads, I wish they had a pavement washing machine every morning like in Paris, sigh...
