The mercury is high here once again. The pool will undoubtedly be our favorite place this summer. In addition to the heat being back.........so is the gopher!! Greg set two traps, and before he had to leave for Arizona this week, he pulled them up, and no gopher!!! He is a wiley one, this guy.
Yesterday morning when I went outside, after having leveled off all of the previous mounds of dirt and rock, I noticed a freshly dug hole. I ran for the hose, and stuffed it down the hole as far as it would go, and then raced to the wall to turn it on full throttle to drown that bleepity bleep thing. I filled the holes with water for a good 20 minutes, feeling certain I got him.
In other news.....Noah is out of school til August. We have been staying in our jammies late into the morning, enjoying more leisurely days.
Yesterday I began the repainting of the wicker furniture. I spread a canvas painters cloth out in the grove underneath the orange trees, and Noah came out with me to play while I worked. I purchased 5 cans of white paint, and one can of yellow to give my resin wicker settee a retouch for summer. The yellow was a breeze, and now looks fresh for the summer by the pool.
Oh dear...this was not going to be nearly enough paint!!!
Other than doing battle with wiley gophers, and painting furniture, there hasn't been a whole lot shaking lately. Geeps was in Arizona all week. He came home last night, and said that when he stopped in Palm Desert for gas, it was 121 degrees!!! E gads!!! In Arizona yesterday, 110. I don't know how you folks do it, living in the desert. I guess you get acclimated. But it is hot enough here in our area for me!! I am glad to have Geeps back home. And I am happy it is Friday!!!!! We have a TAPS gift card burning a hole in our pocket, and a couple of movies we want to see. Happy Weekend everyone!!!
