Spiritual: How is your Family History going? (Genealogy). Do you need to talk to an older member of the family to get information? Do it before it is to late.
This last Saturday Dave and I started on shingling the roof on the lean-to summer kitchen. A bit past noon our yougest son Khristopher showed up to help.
Boy did that help it go faster. We took a break around 2 and had some lunch. By 5 PM we were a little ways up the garage and he needed to leave. We all cleaned up and off he went back down to the valley. I took pictures when i was down off the roof :) each time.
We had a rain storm headed in so Dave decided to get some mowing in before that could happen. He didnt get far 15 minutes later it was pouring cats and dogs. All he managed to get done was the side yard and out to the road.
It looks like he will be moving to either Seattle Washington or Anchorage Alaska in July. It depends where his wife is transfered to. We will sorely miss them.
It was 40 degrees this morning and I had to get a fire going in the wood stove but I shouldnt have to keep it going it is supposed to get into the low 60's outside today at least.
My stupid wrist is still not healed from twisting it and then falling on it. Drives me crazy.
I did cut our first batch of rhubarb yesterday tha is ont he side of our not planted garden. It is all washed this morning and ready to be cut up and cooked.
I also got 2 pounds of mozzarella made yesterday. I am thinking about making ricotta today, we will see.
