Keeping entertained

Been very hot. And I would love to decorate the grave of the man who invented air conditioning. Of all the great inventions in the world that one saves my sanity...lol Looks like another week of heat and lets hope we get down into the 70's soon. I'm still plugging along and enjoying my summer. Funny that it doesn't take much to entertain me. I have redecorated my living room with items that make me think of the sea. Turns out, we have decided to not go to Oregon in October. Just do not want to risk it. After 5 months of keeping to ourselves, we don't want to blow it. Not safe out there yet. 

 

Started painting a creepy gnome from the backyard. He got forgotten in one of the gardens and lost all his color.  

 

Headed north to Flathead Lake for a road trip. Hubby is selling items in an artist's shop and we needed to restock. Such a lovely drive and great to sit and chat and look out the windows at a different view. 

 

 

 

Been baking again and tried my hand at a cheesecake. The batter was a bit lumpy but it came out great. 

 

Working around the yard and pruning trees. We lucked out and by chance found a tree service that could do my 25 foot apple trees (grown for shade) and do them to my specs. They came out great and that's a load off my mind.

 

Our biggest entertainment is yard saling. Since we have a mask mandate in town we feel very comfortable going. And everyone is doing their part with gel and distancing. And folks seem starved for contact, even with strangers.

 

So happy to watch the Indy 500 the other day! I love how they are trying to give us events and safely. I am eager for NFL football to start since my local college team has cancelled their season. Sad

 

Coming up next, painting my bathroom! It's been way too long and needs it. I have about 8 color chips stuck up and trying to decide which shade of yellow. Hmm. This looks better....lol

 

Well, as you can see even if life has gotten a bit strange, we still manage to keep ourselves occupied. Anyone want a Popsicle and do you want to watch an episode of Cheers? Take care. Please wear masks! Always, Kit

I can feel it coming!

Our mornings are now in the lovely 50's and the air has a new feel to it. Fall. The sky looks crisper, and of course it is getting darker sooner. It has been a great summer but I for one, do not like the heat. I tend to go out early and dead head. Water and check out the gardens. Then indoors to further break down the cushions on my sofa...lol 

 

 

We celebrated my daughter's birthday on the 19th of July. Very simple and with distancing and masks when close. I keep seeing and hearing of remote families getting together, hugging and being closer than 6 feet and I don't get it! How can they risk it? Unless those people quarantined for 14 days, how can you know they are clean? Just like my daughter says, you are now sharing their bubble and everyone they have come in contact with. So I will continue to be aloof and unapproachable...lol 

 

 

 

The great day dawned and a month after buying it, our new frig arrived. I have to give Lowe's a big shout out for a great product and delivery crew. They were soooo nice! And careful! And wore masks! Plus, when this silly girl left her insulin in the old frig, they kindly came back and hand delivered it to me. And with smiles. So when my stove decides to go, you know where I'm going. 😊

 

Space X gave us an exciting day. You couldn't have blasted me away from the tv. I had to make sure all my good vibes brought Bob and Doug back safely. So wonderful to see the capsule coming into the atmosphere with her lovely parachutes. Good job!

Well, that's it for now. Just back from a road trip to Flathead Lake. A lovely drive with lovely company. Always, Kit
