Busy, Busy....

I am sure we all feel at times that we are passing ourselves as were coming and going. We're all usually busy most of the time and then there are the
other times that we're more busy than we know how to keep up. We have had a few projects going this summer that we're trying to get done before the snow
flies. We took off the addition on to our garage, the cement had cracked and was
buckling and was moving the walls away from the garage so we decided to tear it down and build alot better floor with a opening so we can drive through the
garage and into our backyard (since the side of the house is limited to 8 ft opening which accomidates the trucks and 4-wheeler trailer but we'd like to able to take our boat in and out which won't fit through the side of the house).
Then in Idaho we just changed the electrical wiring which we have been working
for a few weeks on also. We finally got that done a couple weeks ago but now were going to put down some pavers to make a cooking patio outdoors and have been making flower beds around the trees to make more a pathway around the trailer and shed. Scott also dug out a hole around the water faucet (comes out of the ground from the well) and put some gravel and then cobble stone on top so when the faucet is on the water goes through the stones and doesn't make a
water puddle to stand in anymore. I took some pictures of it because it turned out so nice that I wanted to post them to show everyone how it turned out.....but I left the camera on the end table in the trailer and forgot it to pick it up on our way out of the trailer to come home, so next week I'll get it when we go back up and then post the pictures.
Then there are the everyday stuff that comes up that you have to deal with, like getting the truck inspected and registered for July. Of course we had to go buy a battery which is typical, it seems we buy a battery every year for a vehicle, 4-wheeler, or boat. Last year it was a battery for our Chysler 300 which was a $150.00 expense.
I have been busy this summer that I finally just fertizled our lawn last week, which I usually do in May.
Been doing washing for a week straight and feel like the neighbors are dropping theirs off because their is no end in sight STILL!!! (Done washing from the trip to Idaho, blanklets, changed the beds, typical towels and everyday wear) 16 washes and more to go.
Anyone bored can come to my house I have a few flower beds that need to be weeded out or finish painting the ceiling in the front room, steam clean the carpet in the front room, hallway and stairs.
Well I guess I better get off and go get something done. It is just more fun and enjoyable to do this than work:)
