Have I ever mentioned that my husband is extraordinarily smart? Greg can fix darn well anything. It's left me terribly spoiled because unless it's an emergency, I'll wait for him to get back to me before I hire anyone from outside.
Last week I was without air conditioning all week. The temps were brutal, but I had AC in the bedroom so at least part of the house was livable.
Greg, of course, was a week away from coming home. He insisted that I call someone so I wouldn't be so miserable, but I hated to spend the extra money. We'd already spent enough on floors and fencing, and a vacation for my mother.
Bless his heart, he went over to the AC unit almost as soon as he got home from his 5-hour drive. He diagnosed the problem in less than five minutes. Getting the part took a little longer and we finally found a place who had it in stock. Total repair time took all of two minutes.
Greg said he noticed that every day he talked to me I was a little more irritable than the day before. LOL! Damn, skippy, I was irritable. It was HOT! But I survived. The dogs stayed in the bedroom all day, so they didn't notice a thing.
Nana: We have a graduate! Nana got her certificate from puppy school. The final exam consisted of three trials. She had the fastest time of coming when called and sitting at attention. And she kept the longest 'stay' despite all the distractions that were thrown at her. I was very proud.
This isn't the "official" picture. We haven't gotten that one yet from the trainer. This is the shot Greg took.
Isn't she cute?
Goats: Those girls are going to drive me to drink! Last week, the mama goat (still no names yet) got her horns caught in the welded wire fence. She couldn't figure out how to pull her head out. Then yesterday, she had wedged herself in between a split tree. Fortunately, it was a young tree and I was able to pull it apart long enough for her to break free.
Book news: Mistress of the Stone comes out in print
in July. I'm giving away one (or two) copies to whoever names our goats. (You can still add more names here.)
also doing a book giveaway on Goodreads. I haven't heard back from them
yet, but I asked for the contest to start Tuesday. I'm pretty sure I
gave them enough time, but we'll see. I'll let you know when I receive verification so you can enter.
Greg returns again next week. Aside from a couple of days off to celebrate his birthday, we plan more outdoor building projects. I've got some indoor painting to do too, but I might wait until he leaves again before I tackle them.
There are no dull days at my house. How about yours?
