Good Morning... posting is really a challenge with our terrible internet connectivity. We'll be installing the receiver in a different location in our yard. That means digging in a new post and then spading a channel across the yard to the house in order to bury the cable. Ted can't do any of that. Simon, a youngster who really "needs" the internet is going to help.
Anyway... it's partly sunny. The weatherman promised a hot sunny day today, but the clouds are moving in and our little weather station has rain pictured on it. This really humid weather isn't great for storing bread. I discarded a whole package of tortilla's this morning. They were only about a week old and I wouldn't even feed them to the chicken today.
Ted's out cutting grass on the riding lawnmower. It's his salvation, I think... the presumption of normalcy. We will plant impatiens in the wall columns that hang on either side of the back door. And the potato bed has been worked up so we'll get the seed potatoes into the ground. That will be the last of the gardening for now.
I brought all the lawn furniture up and the deck really does look nice. It was some kind of feat, I don't mind telling you.
Laundry is on today's agenda. The humidity (again) is the enemy of my dishcloths. It's a good thing that I have a lot of them. They don't completely dry in this weather and have to be changed out every couple of days.
Darla, I was head hunted for my job at Navistar so many years ago. They had to make their quota for female supervisors. My immediate Boss brought me into his office on my first day and told me, point blank, that I wasn't wanted in his department. He said he didn't appreciate being forced by the government to hire more women.
Ouch, Doug... been there and done that, so I can relate!
Geoff, I do like the smell of freshly cut grass! I have the windows open here and our grass scent is wafting through the screens.
Bill, I'm sorry but I cannot get past the mentality of gun ownership as your "right". I guess the "rights" of the dead, including so many children, are of little consequence. You know... thoughts and prayers.
Sylvia, it's really a shame that you are restricted by the opening where your fridge will fit. I think it's even difficult to find something that "small" these days! When we renovated our kitchen, we did allow for a larger unit. Looking in Home Depot recently, the newer models are even bigger! Some even have a computer screen in the door!
QS, McKenzie's fiancee is very musical and we bought her a ukulele that she can assemble and paint as a Christmas gift. What fun you must have had jamming with your friend!
Great photos, Ellen! Beautiful Bride (and handsome Groom) and, of course, the little boys.
Uschi... a little each day will get the job done.
Steve, I sure hope that all is well with you and Lisa.
I'm sure that Lynn, Kay and Darla have posted while I attempt to get this to "take". Anyway... I must get off this keyboard and on with real life. Have a great day my friends.
p.s. I started trying to post this around 10:00 a.m.
