Holy FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!. That is what I have been saying every time I step foot outside my door. The mosquitoes are INSANE! I think I have gotten at least 100 bites in the past few days. No joke, they swarm around as soon as the door opens. They have chased me inside more then a few times and have taken more of my blood that I am willing to give. It is terrible and disgusting and I really really hate mosquitoes. (my white walls also hate the mosquitoes, there are blood splatters everywhere)
Other then the nasty ass mosquitoes, the week has been pretty good and super productive. Windows are re glazed and painted, half the siding is up, yard is clean and porch is painted. Give us a bit off good weather and we can get stuff done. We also managed to have dinner with Shannon one night then had Miley and Judah for dinner and crazy messy chalking another night (they discovered water and chalk makes a paste and covered themselves in thick war paint like chalk) I got a few new house plants and I am officially turning our house into a jungle. (makes me very happy) The mr has been working on some sweet stencils so there is little pieces of paper and spray paint everywhere and I am thinking about where to set up my pottery wheel. ( I think the loft is going to be my new pottery studio) So yeah, a full week of fullness and summer and all the people. Oh, and the mr would like me to mention that he has invented a new way to cook an egg. He calls it a broached egg. It's when you are trying to hard boil and egg and accidentally break the egg when putting it into the water and the egg kinda seeps out and cooks that way. Half hard boiled, half poached... Broached. So smart that one.
Today brings with it some more fine weather. I don't know what we have planned for the day, but I am hoping it is not too much. Maybe take the kayaks out, maybe burn some more siding? Hopefully not much work related stuff, but you never know. Whatever we do end up doing, I want to be outside. I just really hope that the mosquitoes are all dead.
