is that you summer?
what is that you say?
come outside and and enjoy the sunshine?
relax, take the day off,
lay in the sun, feel the sand between your toes...
I'll be right out.
This is the conversation I seem to be having every day this week. The weather is beautiful right now. Which is actually strange for the coast. This time of year we are usually in the midst of "June Gloom" (which really lasts until July). They call it June Gloom on account of the thick marine layer which is like a heavy fog. It usually burns off around 11 or 12, but sometimes not at all.
Although this year we have had very little June Gloom and a lot more beautiful sunshine. There is even talk in the newspaper today that we may be able to see the fireworks at Pismo Beach without the marine layer. Absolutely shocking.
We have made a dent in the Honey-do list...okay, "He" has made a dent in the list I gave him.
Hang new blinds in the family room...check.
Call the electrician...check. Watch the electrician hang a new chandelier over the game table.
Patch the hole in the ceiling where the old can light was removed...check. Can't even tell where it was! And to think this man did not own even one tool when I married him. He's got real skills now.
Install 6 small halogen can lights around the perimeter of my work room. I will say I felt like jumping up and down for joy after I pushed the switch to turn them on! Just fabulous.
Clean the garage...check.
Build a podium for the classroom...check. Wait, that wasn't on my list.
Anyway, you get the idea. He has been working hard. I have been trying NOT to work and together we have had a great summer so far. We have had the niece's and nephew here almost everyday since school got out in June, which is always a good thing, even when they start fighting over whose turn it is on the Wii.
|Someone has been up to some shenanigans because I don't think this is where we normally keep the swimming goggles.|
Today I started working on a new post for our "Good Junk" series, where we take stuff we find and make something better than it was (hopefully). Here's a sneak peak...
No. 1 - Good Junk
No. 2 - Good Junk
Have a great weekend everyone!
