As a friend of mine recently said…”If it doesn’t quit raining soon I’m going to rust!”
We had a semi dry week while Hayden was here but, after that rain. rain. rain. I was able to pop in the garden to weed a bit in the early mornings while he was here but never caught up. Then the heavy rains started and things are out of control. Plants are growing willy nilly and weeds are into full on party mode. I was out over the weekend in ankle deep mud trying to gain some since of control….Since its near 90 today and 70% humidity at 11 am I’m leaving it be for the day!
We had a minor emergency here over the 4th.
My coffee pot died.
Yes, you read that correctly.
In my house a broken coffee pot constitutes an emergency.
The on off switch broke.
If you jiggled it just right it would come on and stay on. Mr. Fix-It (bless his heart) fixed it…..I think he was worried about life as we know it without coffee. Rather his life with me when I don’t have morning coffee. A $5.00 switch replaced and we were good to go for another few years. A simple part to do the repair…made me wonder how many would have simply tossed the pot and bought another.
Erika and I spent part of last weekend working on a few updates at her house. We pulled her shutters, power washed them and the house. We painted and rehung the shutters… Oh my gosh the difference it made..to get the full effect, this is last summer & the condition of the house when we bought it a few months ago
This photo was taken this morning.
We’ve all kinds of plants waiting to put in the front flowerbeds. It’s been to wet to get in there to do it. They would have really benefited from all this rain but we wanted to get the shutters finished first. The sun is out so I might get some in today…we’ll see.
Sunshine means laundry to hang so, I better take advantage of it while I’m able.
Hoping for a dry day
