Monday - I had a hard time sleeping, so I just got up and jogged at 4:40 AM. After I returned, I watered the flowers
and pulled out some dead tomato bushes.
|I am just waiting for these beauties to get totally ripe. Those doggone birds better not beat me to it!|
Tuesday - I had mopped and sealed the entryway over night...
I cleaned, vacuumed, dusted, and began Grace's baptism gift.
Wednesday - Nate didn't come...and didn't come...so I worked on the kitchen floor: scrubbed the grout with bleach, and then sealed it...twice.
Dee was gone...and Kayty went to work. I made a visiting teaching appointment and cleaned. I used the neighbor's trashcan to get more palm fronds out...and later in the day, I discovered they had put a construction fence up, making their trash can inaccessible. Oh, well...at least I got two bags out.
Nate came later, after he got some injections, both in his jaw and in the back of his neck. I hope his headaches are helped with this...We need to get this stuff taken care of before they leave for Idaho. He ended up second coating his truck...looks awesome, and he got some work from his old boss, so he will be plumbing the rest of the week.
I worked at trimming the dried and bird eaten grapes and pulling up some more tomatoes.
Thursday - I was up and off hiking early this morning. In fact, I was the first one at the park, and had to wait for the park ranger to open the gate. Nicest thing: the temperature in my jeep read 69 degrees outside: a rare June treasure. I hurried home, started Dee's computer, swept the pool, watered the sunflowers, let the chickens out, and trimmed off 40 bird eaten grape bunches from the vines. I dusted and vacuumed, went to what I had planned to be a short visiting teaching visit, but Yvonne and I got visiting, and I got out in time to get to Dorrie's, where we went to Super Salad for lunch. I was worthless after that...just couldn't get things going. I started embroidering on Grace's baptism gift, visited with a friend from our ward for awhile, and then Dee grilled and broiled some salmon. Nate came by after work and wired his tail lights on the truck. Kayty buzzed in and out, going out with a friend in town. I put a few things in her suitcase, packed up the wedding stuff for the Wilkins family, and watched Duck Dynasty on my computer. Today ended with a quick WalMart trip and then off to bed.
|Here are Dee's Trinidad Scorpion Peppers and Ghost Peppers|
|I looked out my kitchen window, and a stinkin' bunny was sitting on top of the big rock in my garden, just eating the petals off a sunflower! Thumper rules!!! Grrr|
|Ethan wanted her to jump in to him, but she was not going to have any of that. She would sit down and then jump to him.|
|Kooper was famished when he came in from swimming, so Nano fed him this whole bottle!|
|The husband's job is to light his wife's candles. Nathan got them lit...and lit a ladybug antenna on fire as well.|
|Happy Birthday, Jessica!|
