Holy crap! This season is going fast. Not that I mind all that much. Fall is my very favorite time of year. So...hurry up, Summer....get it over with.
Whatcha doing for the 4th? We've got son and daughter coming on Saturday. A cookout is planned. Something simple and not too expensive, I'm planning. Today is grocery shopping day....and other assorted errands.
Good news!....I am totally done with the inside work. The last room was scrubbed and freshened on Saturday. So, yesterday I weedwhacked, pulled weeds, fixed the little fencing around the hedges, trimmed the annuals back so they bush out instead of growing tall and "leggy", and Miracle-Gro-ed the gardens and planters. Yea for me....a gold star!!
Now on to the rest of the outside work. I want to scrub down the siding on the house. First time in 12 years. BH is very nervous about this....he thinks the color of the siding will get all "splotchy". Oh, for crysakes. Well, that will be accomplished next week.....great weather is predicated all next week.
Then it's the car.....washing inside and out, preceded by a good vacuuming inside and then shampooing the upholstery and carpeting. And if time, weather and energy allow.....I just may tackle the van. And, of course, there will be the old farm house...which needs to be straightened up and re-organized. And boxes. Need. to. be. unpacked. ugh.
We're planning a trip back to NY at the end of August to see family. Did I tell you that already? Anywho, we've been trying to plan this out since last year.....but something has always come up. Fingers crossed, it'll finally happen.
Other than that, nothing new going on. Tomorrow should be a very relaxing, puttering around kind of day. Maybe I'll get pictures of the latest vest and get them posted. Oh.....a coconut/banana cream pie will be in the making tomorrow for Saturday. At the request of BH. His birthday is the 9th.....so a little extra celebration is definitely called for.
You all have a very safe and happy July 4th!!!
