There have been summer thunder storms each evening for three nights and besides setting my pooch to shivering, they created quite a drama about things. I’ve finally finished with my intense clean-up in my six-by-six foot storage space that floated in an inch of water…and for who knows how long? It was a bit of a bee in my bonnet as I wanted to be doing other things to get ready for family visits and summer vacation. I’ve now resigned myself to ease off on the pressure.
The plumber who was called in to do repairs ended up being quite the ‘card’ and I took notes as he put a new faucet on our ensuite sink so that I will be able to do the same repair in the house any time. I was quite the assistant and ended up under the sink as much as above as I learned about various supply tubes, nuts and such. Shocking to learn about the drain too…and to find what gathers there! YIKES! I believe I’ll only have to get myself a larger crescent wrench…some dope…and I’ll be set.
I went on a morning wild flower hike with my Ya Yas and ‘the little guy’ on Saturday morning. It was just so awesome to get away from everything and to get out to the mountains with friends. I’ve still not been into my flower identification book to locate the names of the flowers that we discovered. It was certainly a successful adventure, apart from the fact that we couldn’t complete the loop either direction because of high run-off and the water levels around the lake. We had fun trying to take photos at several locations.
Right now we are completing the provincial exam schedule, hosting an awards assembly in the afternoon…School wide Mass tomorrow and a Track and Field day in the afternoon…all that sort of thing. I’m writing like a crazy lady because I want to get a letter and photo off into the mail for each of my language arts students. Am I being completely unreasonable? Laughing here….have a ‘brilliant’ day….last week until vacation! Celebrate with me. Oh yes…and sign my guest book!!! It’s easy schmeazy!
