I just noticed a few places on the north side of the house where the
stucco is separating. Underneath is a previous finish coat of stucco
with a different textures. I had not planned to re-stucco the place
this year. I peel off the loose layer to point where it was still stuck
good to the wall. The underlayer is fine - no cracks, etc. I'm
thinking of going over the wall and pulling off all the loose spots and
spreading some stucco along the exposed edges and then painting over the
whole exposed area to get me through the winter.
The idea of peeling if off instead of leaving it is so that rainwater
doesn't get behind it and sit.
I know it's much better to go ahead and restucco, but for various
reasons it's impossible to do that now. Not a problem doing some minor
patching and painting.
Any thoughts about this?

about stucco, we just patched the few bad spots there were with cement

We just made sure nothing underneath was loose.
A year or so later I drove by just to see how it looked and it was fine.
