Well, like the subject says, Happy Tuesday! SSHHH... Don't tell anyone, but I've got the house to myself this morning! So, I have the computer, the music and the fans all to myself. That hasn't really happened since we moved in here, not for more than an hour or so. I'm likin' it.
I haven't really written much lately, so I thought I'd catch up a little bit here. Bro went back to work for the first time since July 3rd yesterday. Everyone he comes in contact with has to "see the scar". He got lots of sympathy and attention. He said his muscles are sore, but that's to be expected, as he drives a big truck for an excavation company and has to keep his left hand on the wheel, turning corners and stuff. One down. Potsey has a full day at his job. He's a meat apprentice at the local grocery store. And that's two. Me? I don't have to work till this afternoon at 4. This was originally my day off, but a new client was added to my list. So it's mostly a day off. And that's three.
I was witness to a beautiful sunset on my drive home from work last night. In my rearview mirror, there was the orange sun and every color of yellow, orange and red in the clouds. Out my windshield, was the moon rising, the darker blue of darkness beginning to set in and a few whispy clouds tinged pinks and whites. It's times like this I wish I was more artistic or at least had some photography skill. But the artistic gene seems to have skipped a generation in my family. My mom and Son were and are the artists and photographers. (heavy sigh)
We've had a few hotter days, but cool nights, so I just dont know how to dress when I leave for work in the morning. I wear shorts and a tee shirt, but take along a button up shirt for homes that are still cool, then put on a sweatshirt cause it's just too cool without one. By the end of the day I have an armload of clothes to carry in from the car. Yesterday Bro asked me why I'd changed clothes three times, well no, just adding and subtracting them. Some days I'm gone from 6am till 7:30pm or later.
We had a bonfire Saturday night for the Last Night of Summer celebration. What a great send-off that was! We could hear the boys(Potsey and buddies) yelling at the college football games in the house, running out to give us frequent updates. We cooked hotdogs over the fire, Bro smoked some salmon-absolutely Yummy, and for dessert? Well, burnt marshmellows over the fire, of course. The fire was so hot that when I got up Sunday morning to welcome Autumn, there were still some warm coals. I know, you shouldn't leave the fire unattended, but this firepit is huge and surrounded by sand for about 5 yards in all directions. For those unfamiliar with Michigan soils, sand is the main ingredient pretty much everywhere. There were only about two hours where no-one was out there, the boys had to finish off the hotdogs and marshmellows in the wee hours of the morning-after the games were done.
I'm still working in my bedroom. Something just doesn't feel right, so now I'm seriously considering moving the furniture around. I just haven't figured out how and still make everything fit comfortably. I'll have to play with it on paper first, don't want to have to do it more than this one time. Does anyone have any Feng Shui tips? Maybe a trip to the library to find a book.
Well, I'm signing off from this for now, I'm going to have an early lunch, and then go take some measurements in the bedroom. Thanks for stopping by.... Leigh
