Ah summertime. I hope that you are finding yourself on a beach or river(or someplace you want to be) with nothing but time to relax and enjoy yourself. It's Sunday and we all need to relax today. We deserve it.
The past week has been pretty satisfying. The house is going gang busters. We had some insulators come and blow insulation into the walls on the first floor and later next week the upstairs is going to be spray foamed insulated.... And then we can move it (No not really) but this is huge. But now got to get ready for the guys to come and finish so we have to hall ass ans finish wiring, prepping and all the good stuff that they need us to do. We got a deadline to meet, but once that's done its on. We can start hanging sheet rock (who wants to help?) and finish the bathrooms and kitchen and everything!1 AAAAHHHHH!, but we are all good. It's getting done and starting to seem like we might actually get to move in before the winter.
But it wasn't all work. The days when the insulators where at the house we took off for the mountains and found some rivers. The mr went fishing, the pup went swimming (and now I don't need to give him a bath for a while) and I played with river rocks and read. We also visited with the bees up on the roof just to check how the ladies are doing and so far this season they are doing great, buzzing along like the bees do.
Today is one of those days that could go either way. We can work, maybe we really should work, but it's suppose to get hot and humid and I really don't want to. What I really want to do is go to the library and pick up (and drop off) books, go see the littles that just got back from Germany and share the watermelon that has been sitting on my counter all week with them. Maybe even go for a bike ride and take a nap. Sounds nice right? Hum. We shall see. At least I know there is a carrot popsicle in the freezer with my name on it.
