Almost forgot about that, but here we are. Catch your sunbeams while you can!
The church down the street has an annual Japanese bazaar, with music and food and kiddie games and crafts and plants. Yesterday was the day; the smell of the BBQ and sound of the taiko drums are glorious!
The new little cat, Minerva, continues to enjoy the housecat life, becoming a little braver and funnier each day. Her big quirk is that she is scratching the thin fabric under the couch, so it hangs down in a ragged fashion -- but that is much better as a bad habit than shredding the visible parts of the couch, don't you think?
After 18 years in this house, my beloved and I finally agreed on colors for repainting the exterior! Which will happen after the window extravaganza; we always figured there was no sense repainting when those windows have got to go, but things kept coming up, as they do. I have a feeling he will want to do the scraping and painting himself, which is OK because he is running out of yard projects -- and an idle beloved will scour the home improvement supply store until he settles on something like a home jackhammer to work on the cracked driveway.
How are things in your neighborhood?
