For anyone reading our blog you will notice as the summer goes on I will not post as often but I am going to do my best to keep it up to date at least twice a week. I would like to keep a record of this summer and getting the "For Sale" sign out in front.
So this is our fourth day home. You will notice a complete lack of pictures because I have not taken any. We have been enjoying time with our grandchildren and daughter I just keep forgetting to take pictures. Wednesday my feet got a treat when our daughter gave me a pedicure...she had mentioned it looked like they could use one. She worked at the Kohler Water Spa in Kohler, WI, a 5 star spa, for 5 years so she does an excellent job even without the fancy equipment. I now have happy toes.
It started raining Tuesday evening and it stopped last night about 7 or so and I bet you are thinking that is good news. No...no not really because it stopped raining and turned to snow. Not snow that stayed on the ground mind you, though farther north it did do some accumulating, but snow just the same...and yesterday's temperature was a lovely 36 degrees. So the only time I was outside was to travel between the Stinger B, in our driveway, and the back door to bring in a few things. As I write this it is, I am in denial so I checked it twice, 32 degrees. Okay that is just to, to cold we will have to go out and apologize to the Stinger B for bringing it to the "frozen" north this early. They, whoever they are, are predicting a "balmy" high of 41 degrees today but no sun. I do see a sun, a partial sun, on next Thursday's weather, we can only hope. Of course, I also see rain coming out of clouds Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. I know the sun is still out there the rest of you keep talking about it. We are thinking May, yes May, would be a better month to come home. The last two years we did come back in May and the weather was much kinder. We do not even have dandelions yet...:( Okay, I have gotten that out of my system, enough ranting about the weather.
On a good note we are getting things done and with any luck the upstairs will be pretty much cleared by Monday. Plus, the things that need to come in from the Stinger B are slowly making their way in. So maybe the cold rainy weather is a blessing in disguise, I am trying to be positive about 32 degrees, because it is somewhat keeping us on track. Of course, not to having to worry about this house anymore is also a great incentive. Not coming home to yard work and repairs will be nice. Besides clearing out the inside, the yard needs to be racked, our washer quit, and we have a leaky pipe which are know added to Tom's lengthening to do list. So we will keep "plowing" ahead one day at at time.
"The best thing about the future is
that it comes one day at a time."
Hope you are enjoying your day.
If you have time to leave us a note we would enjoy hearing from you.
