Whew, I’m tired, guys. The husband and I went on a quick weekend road trip to visit the girl in Colorado and watch her perform her junior flute recital. We packed two days full of adventure and good food and vaccinated hugs, and it was all fantastic.
Of course I had to visit a yarn store in Fort Collins! And Longmont! Plus the husband found me the perfect travel mug at a kitchen store. So I came home with yarn goodies and a finished sock.
But there was a day of driving on either end, and we came home to minor renovation-related electrical issues, two dogs coming home from boarding full of craziness, one upset dog stomach, one damaged car bumper from an altercation with a curb, plus the usual unpacking etc. Fortunately, the clever husband blocked the gaps in the fence with some temporary fencing, so we’re able to take the dogs to the backyard when the workmen aren’t here. That helps so much! They’ve made amazing progress on the demolition; now they’ll move on to cleaning up the side of the house. The extra wiring and light fixtures will go away, the two upper doors will become windows, and the wall sections will be replaced with clapboard siding. No idea how long it’ll all take, but I’m hoping no more than a couple of weeks. Three dogs and limited backyard access is not fun!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to take a nap before dinner! Happy Tuesday, friends.
I would be pooped. What a full few days. I almost didn’t recognize the back of your house.
Me neither, and I love it!!
Wow, I’m exhausted just at the idea of all that going on. Colorado is so pretty, as is your daughter. That mug is brilliant.
Yes, I’m ready for some boring days!!
Sounds like a great trip! The girl looks lovely in her recital dress. Though… she also looks COLD. The scenery is lovely too! I need to get to Colorado for a visit one of these days.
Yay yarn, and that is a perfect travel mug!
Haha, yeah, it was a little brisk outside! And yes, Colorado is a must-see if you like mountains!
So pretty. I’ll get there eventually!
That sounds like a wonderful trip! It must have been so nice to have your family all together 🙂 Lovely scenery and great shopping finds too 🙂 They are making good progress on your house!
Well, we left the son home to take care of a dog, so we weren’t all together unfortunately. But that will happen next month!
That will be great! Is the girl coming home to visit then?
Yes! She’s coming home for her brother’s high school graduation!
That will be so nice!
