After a long, cool, wet spring and early summer we at last had some hot days. Not that I am complaining. It has been a great relief to have a cooler year with more moisture than the past several years. The forest needed some time to recover. Another heat dome and I hate to guess how many trees would be falling.
We also finally made it back to the prairies to visit the family. It has been almost three years since we had an in person visit. We decided to drive and took a month all totalled.
One of the reasons we chose to drive was to pick up the latest member of the family…meet Grey.
He is the half brother of Maggie. Same dad, different mom. So far the two get along like gangbusters. Maggie is a great big sister and loves to play with him and looks after him. In fact will run over to him if a large raven flies over. They are also a great help in the yard work 🙄
I’ve made a decision to change my work regime. I am cutting back to 3 days a week to give me more time in the yard and hopefully at the shop. I have been frustrated by the fact that I have a great arrangement to use this building but to date have taken very little advantage of it. Best to start before the owner decides to sell the place.
Speaking of the owner, finished another project for her too. The downstairs bathroom, which was never completed since they built the house 30 years ago. In fact if was being used as a storage closet. I still have some bits to finish like cleaning up the old door frame and hanging the pocket door to the shower, but it’s 95% there.
