If that's the case, you should all love me! I know, I've been gone a long time. But it's been a busy, busy time. I made a trip to Philadelphia to pick up Justine and move her home for the summer. Then, she and her fiance drove back out to go apartment hunting (they found one they absolutely LOVE!).
The garden is in and the continual battle with weeds has begun. But things are looking good. We had a late frost that nipped a few of the tomatoes, even though we covered them- but I only had to replace one so I'm not complaining too much.
We're working to re-stain the deck and pergola but the weather hasn't been cooperating with us as we need a 4 day stretch with no rain in the forecast. Otherwise, outside stuff has been slowly progressing although we hope to finish out last patio this summer while Justine and J are still home. Also on the work menu for the summer is painting the basement rec room. But that may have to wait until Justine moves out.
She and James have been organizing for their move to Pennsylvania. They've been collecting all of those things you need for your first apartment so we essentially have about half of an apartment stashed away in our basement at the moment. We've been anticipating this move for quite a while and have been purchasing and obtaining things like pots and pans, towels, dishes, sheets, etc when they are on sale or otherwise great deals- for probably the last year and a half. And neither one is so picky that they mind hand-me down stuff so they are doing well on scrounging furniture from here and there.
I shall try again to be more consistent with posting here. Maybe I just need to set a schedule for myself... MAYBE then I'd be better at getting a post up every now and then.
