So How Was Your Weekend?

What did you do? Have a cookout and watch fireworks with friends and family?

I watched the national fireworks show on PBS last night and kept an eye out for my daughter and son-in-law who were there. He's one of the Capitol Police and I thought I might see him, but no.

I worked on my laundry room all weekend and almost got it completed. I installed self stick tiles, which look very nice but makes the mint green paint look horrible. I suppose I'll have to repaint the room now. The tiles weren't what I really wanted but they were the cheapest tiles Home Depot had so I went with it. I still have to move the washer and dryer to put the new tiles under them but ran out of energy.

I got the caulking finished and new trim up. Now I just need to touch up some areas or repaint the entire room.

We were supposed to get thunder storms all day today but didn't. There were a few sprinkles here and there - just enough to make the humidity unbearable. It's so dry here that even the weeds are shriveled up. :( At this point, I feel like I'm watering plants just to feed the deer but really hate to let everything turn crispy brown yet.

I caught Wendy and Tom, my outdoor mouser kitties, on the porch. Wendy was sacked out; Tom was just looking out into the yard.

Oops - she doesn't look very happy about me waking her up...

Sorry Wendy girl!
