What? The year’s half over already? I don’t recall seeing 6 full months go by!
I did get a lot done this weekend. Yesterday in the yard: edging and mowing the lawns, and weeding the garden boxes. It was the only good day for the outdoor chores, as it was the only rainless day likely in the next week, and we’d had rain for the prior 8 or 9 days straight. Today, thunderstorms and downpours started before noon.
Today was mostly filled with shopping, cooking, and woodworking.
