Washington Baked

Happy Sunday to all,

Last weekend I didn’t get to finish the yard project I was undertaking.  Woes me, I didn’t get to finish this weekend either.

We have been hit hard with a heat wave.  Though I live in the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant, we have broke many records in this early summer heat.  Today was 112, and yesterday was 108.  So the family has been huddled inside the air conditioned house.

I spent the morning looking for a drill bit I bought purposely to hang up the towel racks in the bathroom.  Ended up unpacking some boxes and finally finding the drill bit, just before I had to make supper.  You know how you put something up so that you will remember where it is when you need it?  Well that is what I did with the drill bit.  4 hours later I remembered where I put it.  Ugh, this memory thing is beginning to bug me.

Well I got a few things done in the house today, but not nearly as much as I wanted.

Yesterday morning Lynn and I managed to put up a piece of OSB where the gate is going to be, seeing as the weather isn’t letting-up for at least another week.  We didn’t want to wait another week to get Kinzie in the yard.  We also hung two small gates.  One in the morning and one in the evening.  Kinzie spent her first night in her new yard.  I worried all night long, but she survived just fine.  She spent the day in the house though.

Kinzie, staying where it is cool.

So I had to take a few pictures for the insurance on the house, so I will post those so you can see what has been done and some of what is left to do.

The yard looks pretty pitiful, but new grass will not be planted until next year.  So I am watering to green up the weeds, as they at least look better than brown weeds.  My new dream is to get it professionally landscaped with a sprinkling system.  It is good to have dreams and goals.  Although now I need to just chill-out and enjoy what I do have.

Stay cool and have a great week.
