Cabin overnight and remodeling

I drove out Hwy 410 yesterday afternoon to see J&T at their cabin on a river. 
Their dog Vinny took a bit to warm up to me but before too long we were all caught up with each other. 
It has been raining and the river was a bit muddy from upstream landslides but by morning it had turned to clear again. 
After a rousing evening of Canadian Rummy, a new game to me, and being beat by J at every turn, we turned in early only to see it still sprinkling at dawn. After the heat of the past couple of weeks it feels so good to feel the damp and cooling breeze. 

Back in Tieton I spent the next couple of hours with a headache. G drove to Cowiche to pick up some sinus meds for me and the pain finally subsided by 4 pm. Whooie. Headaches are an energy drain. 

I don't recall whether or not I've said much about what's happening here at my friends house but they are in the midst of cleaning and painting and replacing almost everything in the house, while living in it! That's tough to do but slowly they are making progress and I've tried to be helpful. 

The stairs to the second floor (office and second bedroom) need quite a bit of work and the treads need replacing 
They're going to use OSB treads painted with a beautiful shade of purple 
Maybe we will get them installed before I leave to go hiking again...but probably not. 

The French doors are in the living room and cleaning off the paint is a tedious job. Having it right there has the same effect of keeping a jigsaw puzzle out... when you walk by its easy to pick up a razor and do a pane or two. Not so tedious that way.
