Peace at last! The house is empty! Just kidding, I really enjoyed having Mom and Dad this weekend. Dad found things to do this past week, that I didn’t even know needed done!
Linda and Ruby came over yesterday for a big lunch. We had fun, and I made a pretty good spread. We had fresh Asparagus, and a Pork Roast. I swear that the Roast must have been filled with triptophaine (My Spell Checker did not have a better spelling). Every one of us got SO sleepy afterward, that we all took naps! I was knocked out for almost 2 hours.
Then today I had some leftovers…. And I just about fell asleep within an hour!
I finished the decking portion of the deck this Sunday and Monday. I wanted to have it ready for Monday afternoon. It was pouring rain Sunday morning, and I persevered. I should have a railing by the end of the week.
We have Kittens, Timmy’s! We picked them up at the neighbors yesterday. I took a few photos, we will have to see what turns out. We have 5 in all. They made it through the first night, lets hope that bids well for the future. I installed metal grating under all the openings in the barn. This should keep out Raccoons and Opossums.
Of course anytime I talk about an installation… What would be the fun unless I got injured? When I was still drowsy (from the pork), I started cutting this metal fencing with a power circular saw. I just bought a metal cutting blade a while back, and it started to disintegrate as I cut 5, Eight foot lengths. The sparks were flying, and a big chunk of metal went into my eye! FUN! I thought I got it out… But last night my eye was acting like it was more than scratched. I could barely sleep! This morning I took a closer look in the mirror, and saw a little piece lodged in the skin of my pupil. It was like a silver piece of sand. I tried to brush it out with my finger, and then used the round side of a straight pin to push it out…. None of it worked! So I went to the basement, and got a big magnet. I touched my pupil with that, and “Viola”! All better! Just thought you all would enjoy a good story!
Dad did leave one mess….. Shame!
We went to see Shrek this weekend (Since Ang and Sandra spent 6000.00 at Kroger this past 2 weeks!), and I must say it was very good. See it if you have the chance. It can only be better than the other swill at the theaters this month.
