Happy Sunday to you there people. It's suppose to be a gem of a day today. I hope you all are planning some good times to take advantage of it. It is officially summer so we should all be summering.
The past week had been decent but a little wonky. It seemed like it rained all the time which it didn't but kind of did. We had my mom and bros come over for a little family time dinner. (one twin loved the food, the other hated it) Got to take the kayaks out for a good paddle and have managed to get a lot of stupid little things that have needed to be done done. Farm share pick upwhich is starting to get a whole lot bigger (bring on all the greens) and the backyard garden is bursting with stuff (radishes up to my ears) With all the food we have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen at the new island making food, eating food, or reading. It is the most amazing kitchen island and I am obsessed with it.
The painting of the house is taking much more time then I thought it would. First off, rain, and you can't paint in the rain. Then there is way more prep then I realized; scraping, holes to fill, scraping dead ivy from the sides (the mr has been doing most of the crap work) Then painting, then repainting because colors and me. Now we are at a point where we have the main porch painted with a great color but any windows or house siding colors is still undecided. All the windows are painted all different shades of black and grey. It is keeping me up at night. (picking out colors is very hard for a brick house that seems to change colors all the time) But I have goals. This coming up week I will have all the house painting completely done. YEAH!
We are not suppose to do much work today, just try to take it easy. With that being said I am pretty sure the mr is planning on climbing into the trees in the driveway and trimming the tree branches that are growing onto our roof. Relaxing? Not so much.(He is very much afraid of heights) So if he does that, I will probably be out there the whole time holding the latter and being ready to catch him if he falls. But after that I might go strawberry picking. Farm share pyo has begun and I have strawberries and snap peas waiting for me. Got to get Summering.
