Just a Chat
These crystal clear days just put a spring in your step. We’ve been doing all the outdoor work we’ve been putting off all summer. No one really wants to power-wash a house, garage, sidewalks and driveway when the temperature is in the upper nineties and the humidity is about the same. But when the temperature is in the seventies, the sky is bright blue and there is a fresh breeze, you can hardly bear to stay indoors.
So….the house is literally sparkling clean. You just can’t believe what a great job that power-washer did on the sidewalk. I had absolutely no idea it was that filthy! Of course now I need to wash the windows, but I’ll save that for another day. Instead I worked on all the flower beds. I trimmed everything back to within an inch of its life, pulled weeds and picked up all the dead leaves that had collected. They look as neat as a pin – and I feel a great sense of satisfaction.
Tomorrow morning we head out to visit the kids and grandkids. I can hardly wait. My Mom and Dad are going to come with us. This will be their first look at the new house. It’s been too long since I’ve hugged my “grands”. I am really looking forward to this.
We’ll be back on Sunday. I’ll try to visit then. Have a blessed weekend everyone.
