Beth was holding her and needed to have a
picture taken. Mother and Daughter. :)
In random news of the, well, random. I noticed on Friday on my way home from work that BNSF put stop signs at the railroad crossing on our road. At least I'm assuming it was BNSF. They didn't just do it on our road, though. It was done at every county road crossing. So that's something new to get used to.
We went to Alex this afternoon to make a pilgrimage. We took both vehicles (because we needed my pickup for some 8' shelves), which seems silly...but it really didn't save or waste any more gas than any other situation. I simply took advantage of having Beth along with me...because I'd have needed to go to Alex with my pickup in any way to get the longer items. Since there was no way we'd all fit in the pickup (along with the other stuff we needed to get), two cars it was. So I parked at Menards and we took the car everywhere else around town.
I got the wiring harness for the trailer sprayer, so I can hook that up anytime. Good times. We also picked up the necessary bits for some shelves which we're going to put up (possibly tomorrow, we'll see) in the kitchen. This means that we'll actually be able to store all the stuff we currently don't have room for in the kitchen (so it ends up on a shelf in the basement). Should work out really nice.
When we got home, I went out and mowed the lawn. It worked out pretty well because the wind had switched directions (when we left in the early afternoon the wind was from the southwest, and when we returned it was from the northwest, which means it's much more calm around the house) so I wasn't going to get terribly dirty. I got pretty much all of the mowing done -- there's some I'll have to do either tomorrow or Monday (around the garden and dog yard), but I got everything else done. Even managed to do the push mowing part and broke out the weed eater. I re-borrowed back my push mower from Mark (who's been keeping it for me to mow his lawn in town) so I could get those tough-to-reach places. He and Abby will be leaving for Madison, WI, sometime in late July, I believe. So until then we'll be sharing my push mower.
Anyway, that's about the state of the world. Not a whole lot new, but something about which to ramble.
So until next time...
