I am sitting here thinking of all the things I want to get done today. I work every other weekend so this makes my weekends off pretty valuable.
We got back from another camping trip yesterday afternoon. This time we went up to Flagstaff, another of my favorite towns, and camped in the forest nearby. It was great. We are so lucky having such amazing scenery a mere two hours away.
We went with a friend this time so I actually have a rare picture of me, the girls and Cocoa, (who was the lucky dog that got to go with us this time).
I am so glad I took the girls camping this summer because now I know I can, and next year will be so much easier.
Only two weeks before the girls go back to school and I was thinking we might be able to squeeze in another camping trip, but really that would be a bit greedy, and anyway I have lots to get done.
In two short weeks both girls will be in school and I will have free mornings which should be a good thing but honestly, I am feeling a bit wobbly about it all. How did I suddenly get a kindergartner, AND a preschooler?
Anyway, today after I get my statistics assignment submitted, and the tent cleaned and put away, I need to go and buy a new wheelbarrow. Our old one has a flat tire that can't be repaired apparently, and new wheels cost as much as a new wheelbarrow. It is such a waste, and really makes me mad, but what is one to do? This time I am going to get one with a solid tire that wont go flat, and hopefully it will last forever. After that I am going to finish the sand box veggie bed once and for all because I can't stand to look at it anymore.
I also still have to finish sanding and varnishing the trim around the front door. I have finished the actual door, but the trim is still not finished. Just one other project that I want to complete.
The girls really want to make cupcakes this afternoon which doesn't seem like such a great idea in view of the fact that it is going to be 110 today. However, sometimes one just has to do normal stuff, and so that it the plan for late afternoon.
I hope you are all having a great weekend whatever you are all doing!
