This week August will begin. I'm ready as summer is not my favorite time of the year. Bring on Fall and the Holidays!
In the meantime, we need to finish up the summer projects.
We're getting a new roof - the shingles have been delivered and placed on the roof. Hopefully, the crew will be here this week to do the dirty work; and we will have a new 'onyx black' roof. The change in roof color, of course, will probably mean a complete paint job on the house. I'm already looking at paint samples.
Our house is 26 years old, and the fence was showing its age. Bob has decided to replace it in stages. Our son came home for a few days to help with the sides and gates. When you get two highly educated mathematicians/engineers together, things are checked for level over and over!
And, if you are 10 years old, wet concrete just calls for getting your hands dirty.
And, what have I been doing -- lots of cooking to keep the troops fed. Real men DO eat quiche!
This cutie and I have some major shopping plans week after next before school starts. That's the best part of summer for a soon-to-be high school sophomore. She's been pretty busy this summer training for the cross-country season plus she goes to church camp next week for some serious volunteer labor. As she gets older, 'grammy time' gets shortened; but we plan to make up for it on our shopping trip.
I'm taking a blogging break for a couple of weeks to finish up the summer and recharge my batteries. See you then!
