On my mind

1.  The contractor guy is here to start work on some concrete we're having poured for extra driveway space.  He arrived bright and early with his crew.  I'm so happy to have this project underway.  For one thing, it will take care of the weeds and dirt that currently occupy that space.  For another, I can start making a plan for the dirt patch next to our back patio, the one I see in my mind's eye as a rose garden.  We've put that project on hold, until Craig -- our contractor guy -- is done with the driveway, because he's going to use the extra dirt he's digging out and put it in the backyard along the east fence to level out the yard.  My wanna-be rose garden is in the path that he'll be driving the tractor.  So, I don't  mind listening to the whine and roar of the tractor engine, because it tells me that progress is being made.

2.  My water aerobics class had a beach party on Friday. We did our regular workout amidst beach balls flying back and forth, and water gun fights.  Then, when the class was done, the lifeguard turned on the slides and we got to play until the pool opened to the public and the kids took over.  Great fun!

3.  I finished another book over the weekend.  If you're looking for a funny, light, hysterically funny, creative, hilariously funny summer read, Home to Woefield by Susan Juby, is what I would recommend.  (You can click on my sidebar for the Goodreads link).  Warning: it has some very colorful language.

4.  Our Father's Day was nice and quiet.  Joe and his friend, Sam, came over, and Luke grilled steaks.  I made twice baked potatoes (Dan's favorite) and some sides.  The weather was beautiful for sitting outside.  I talked to my dad on the phone. (Insert smile here).  I love my dad. 

5.  I started this post this morning, and then my computer wouldn't hook up to the internet all day.  I unplugged the green wire, but that didn't fix it. So, I threw caution to the wind and unplugged the black wire. But, that didn't fix it either.  Long story short, I waited until Dan got home, and "we" worked on it and finally got it up and running.  However, I have no idea what we did. It reminds me of Algebra class, when I would get the right answer, but had no idea why. Makes my stomach feel kind of queasy.  Because the next time it happens, I still won't know what to do.  Sigh.

Over and out.

Grrr to computer issues. Right now I'm having printer problems and I can't figure out why it won't print. Drives me crazy!
Glad you had a nice Fathers Day.
