So... a beautiful day in our part of the world.
We had a nice breeze and lots of warm sunshine.
And... and I got to swim in a pool.
We spent a good bit of the afternoon at a neighbors, swimming and playing with their dogs.

wearing
~ alternating between shorts and a bathing suit. :)
planning
~ take care of a neighbors dogs a lot today... nice pool. :D
~ cut and prime all the wood for the shelves...
~ make a pork loin for dinner
~ play Wii Resort Sports at night...
wishing
~ that lisabella doesn't turn her back on the demon cats...
~ for jenlovefl2003 to remember to save me some banana bread...
~ and to send props to misanthropoid for being the right kind of mom. :)

Birthday moments...

And happy birthday jethro . May the year ahead keep you healthy and happy. :)

This is the YEAR OF THE MOSQUITO.
Little frackers... oh my freaking god.
It's like the perfect storm for mosquito production... what with little pools of water all over the woods (thanks to massive rain storms).
Starting at about 5:30... and maxing out by 9:00...
If you walk outside and stand there... you will be swarmed.
Fifteen to thirty little bastards flying onto and around you withing moments.
It's like... they smell you... come check you out...
Then call all their friends.

I fixed a problem with the coping on the ramp this morning...
The whole thing was bowing "in" at the center of the ramp because of a curve in a key 2x4 that forms the lower part of the coping support.
This meant that the pipe really stuck out in the middle and was ideal over at the sides.
Now? Well of course, it's ideal all the way across. :)
I still haven't attempted to drop-in...
But I am admitting that being able to overcome that fear thing covered in pads, at home, and not at a park... is a good thing... and a good part of why I built the darn ramp...
So... I have got to build up the stones for the big drop.
I'll let you know... believe me, if I manage to not die, I will likely bore you to tears with the story.
