Happy Labor Day!...
This has been a rather sad weekend for me. Honey, my friends Greyhound that we love so much passed away Saturday night. We will all miss her so much. RIP Honey.... You can see a picture of Honey in better days further down this page.
It's also sad that Labor Day, for me, marks the end of summer. We certainly haven't had much summer weather the last few days. I've been turning on the electric heat in the mornings to warm the house up and we just had our first load of firewood delivered. Soon we will be building that first fire of the season.
The deck is finally finished! Now it's on to other projects. One of them being a fresh new paint job for the exterior of the house. It's looking pretty shabby. You can really tell we use our gas grill a lot. We need to figure out some sort of hood or panel so the smoke doesn't stain the paint. And we need some new landscaping around the deck. It's looking pretty bare without colorful flowers.
Tomorrow is the first day of school for the grandkids and Morgan, who's 5, is starting kindergarten this year. I can't wait to see how she likes school.
