Just another day.....

Knitting: Cast on for leggings and have knitted 1/2 way to the knee for Bumpkins. Also have done 1 more set on the Sarah Blanche Scarf. Hope that I don't have to wind another ball for that one.

We are in the beginning of shut down at the pool. So I am very sore and tired. Today was spent gently scrubbing calcium build up off of a light pole. Had to scrub lightly as the paint was coming off- if I scrubbed to hard. Tomorrow will be scrubbing the rest of the bench and all of the window trim. The bench is about 3 ft. long and 2 ft. high- alot of scrubbing for 5 hours! Feel the burn! I have muscles where I forgot that I had muscles. Yesterday I spent the day taking vent covers out of the vents. (They are about 3 ft long and heavy) and in front of every window. So lets see about 26 of them suckers. Not only did I have to remove the units but take the pretty metal plate thingy out of the top. And wipe each one down and wipe down the benches themselves. Did I mention the walls that needed to be scrubbed? 6 of those and they were taller than me. That was after I already had sanded the stuff that I had scraped off the day before. I finished it up on time because I had a helper that stuck the vacuum in the vents. Can you imagine listening to a shop vac for 4 hrs?

Update on Thing Two- Homecoming this weekend! And he is playing varsity. Princess is going to go look at cars this weekend. And Bumpkins can turn off the amp when she is done playing the drums. She also told me that she turned the piano off when she was done (for that one she just turned it way down!). She is getting so big.

No pics again as the internet is really slow due to ....... rain. DH says that we have had some frosts but my Nasties are still alive. (Nasties die as soon as frost so much as kisses them.) Think we have had some really heavy dews.

Dinner: hamburgers w/fried onions and mushrooms and tater tots.

Weather: 50's sunny this am... but tonight RAIN! Get wet fast stuff and leave puddles behind.
