Now the specifics:
Weather was interesting this week. Sunday through Wednesday we had rain off and on. No way any work was getting done outside. Then Thursday it cleared but got very hot and humid. We mowed lawn Thursday and had to quit before we got it all done. The heat and humidity was brutal. It only got worse as the week progressed. I got out Friday and finished up the trimming I missed Thursday and sprayed some trees. They seem to be the only ones that attract the Japanese Beatles. Then Saturday went down and helped Mike finish repairing the fence at the house they are selling. Bottom line, a lot of work in the heat and humidity. But I didn’t do too bad for an old guy.
Kathy had been busy with the grand kids a lot this week. Monday of course she had her usual detail of watching them for the day. Then Thursday she had to go over early and pick up Shelby to take her to a doctor’s appointment. Friday she had to go over and watch them awhile. The regular babysitter had a doctor’s appointment so Kathy filled in till she was done with that. But I guess she is enjoying it.
Tuesday we were suppose to go down to Shepardsville to help Mike finish the fence. We started getting sever thunderstorm warnings and reports of tornado’s north of us. So we turned around half way down and got home. Was not good weather.
Other than normal stuff I went to the library to get a library card so I can download ‘E’ books on my tablet. Perhaps one day when I run out of other things to do I’ll read some books.
Well that about sums it up for this week. Nothing exciting, just staying busy. Hope all is well and will blog at you again next week.
