This is a new place to us this year.
(No significant spoilers) Full disclosure: 1) I don't care for prequels. 2) I'm bored of the Star Wars series. 3) My main source of fiction reading is fan fiction. I can still recall the summer of 1977 and sitting in a theater in the, then, small town of Kalispell, MT. I read these words to … Continue reading Solo: A Star Wars Review
Mostly pics because we had a very long day and I'm really tired. This is my vacation read. My goal is to finish it by Sunday night. It's pretty good but is going to get weepy. MG today...and four years ago at Black Horse. Look, there was a ton of sand in my car and … Continue reading Vacation 2018: Day Two
In shocking news, we are at San Luis Obispo for vacation. Unlike last year, when we were in San Luis Obispo. 😉 The kids like it here. There's Black Horse Coffee and a really cool candy shop. Other things too, but I'm pretty sure those top their list. We started...after several pit stops and an … Continue reading Vacation 2018: Day 1
Took it easier today. Left the windows and the slope for weekends. But it looks worlds better than when I started on Monday so I'm happy...and exhausted. New glasses. For the first time in my 30 years of glasses, I needed a new prescription within a year. Another sign of old age. 👵🏻 Splurged for … Continue reading Day Eight: A Wee Bit Restful
I'm tired. One more day, but the most difficult thing tomorrow will be the windows. Today we put the rest of the bark on the yard. In one week, the pile of wood chips on my drive has gone from the size of my mini-van to nothing. I don't take before pics, btw. I think … Continue reading Day Six? No, Day Seven.
Not a ton of stuff in the yard today. It's Saturday, so MG and I clean the car. And by clean, I mean detail. We start at 7am and usually finish by 10am. Detailing takes time, folks, but it's worth it. I could probably do more but MG would rebel. 🙂 There is something completely … Continue reading Day Six: Saturday is Car Day
Spent most of today potting plants. We used a few seeds, but most was pre-started and bought at Home Depot. I've been there three days in a row and will be back tomorrow. I gave myself some room to finish by not scheduling anything for the weekend as far as the yard. That made today … Continue reading Day Five:Almost There
Started listening to an awesome podcast while I was working on the yard today. It's called This Week in Microbiology. It is fantastic. When I walk into Micro in August, maybe I won't feel like I'm in a foreign language class. It was so interesting that it made forget my fear of pipettes. Seriously, they … Continue reading Day Four: Of Podcasts and Peas and Nothing Else That Begins with P
Just a little commentary on keeping the ghosts at bay...it's hard, even when busy. It's easiest at school. I'm not sure why. Maybe because of the adult interaction. When I mentioned that at the end of the year work party yesterday, my friend laughed at my use of the word "adult" since my friends are … Continue reading Day Three: Trees and Things
