I finally gave MIL her resurrected calla lily.
You know what? She didn’t seem particularly pleased at all.
*shrugs* I dunno.
The Mister finished the semester with a 3.6 GPA. I’m so pleased for him! That’s a great accomplishment for anyone who goes to school full-time while working full-time, let alone while having a family! I think the summer sessions will be even better, because he’ll have two days without work or school, wherein last semester he only had one. He has never lacked dedication, that’s fersure!
High grade point averages are hot.
Sadie’s been spending considerable time in the back yard while I work in the garden. Saturday, she startled me by barking from the gate. And just look what she brought me.
She’s always proud to have killed a squirrel. Her humans are always conflicted.
Oh no, you caught a squirrel!
Yay you caught a squirrel!
So mostly, we just stand there, silently staring at them both. It’s her nature, of course. She takes great pride in delivering her squirrels. But, oh, we wish she didn’t. Good dog. See what I mean?
I was asked if it was Chubby, and it’s not, but it’s only a matter of time, really.
We have a veritable squirrel graveyard in The Back 40.
According to our schedule, what with Monday being Memorial Day, today was the last bus stop day. I realize I never fully explained the drama of the bus stop situation, and I don’t know if I ever will, but you are so happy for us. We will enjoy those two months of not standing alongside the busy thoroughfare hoping some bus, any bus really, stops to pick up the children between between seven and eight o’clock. I have never encountered such a clusterfuck of school transportation in my life, and I am so glad it’s over! I’m sure next year will be better. If not, I will blog about it. Next year will be better, RIGHT?!?
I used the power drill to hang this shelf, all by myself.
It only took me 90 minutes. I measured about forty-five thousand times. I am so proud. It has toggle bolts and everythin! My friends were all so proud. The Mister was like, “Cool. What’s fer dinner?”
And yes, I did finally finish sanding that back hallway. I painted it a lovely shade of soft yellow, called Honey Bear. No, I haven’t painted the trim yet, because I’m suffering from there-are-six-doors-in-that-hallway procrastination!
