Checking In

I’m taking a little break while the rest of the family is making lunch…walleye, coleslaw and baked beans, yum!

I’ve still been trying to clean this office of mine.  What a job.  We all seem motivated to get some jobs finished up this weekend.  OK, not the kids…but the grown-ups in the family are busy.

I took everything off the horizontal surfaces yesterday, piling it all in the family room. I’m close to done putting it back.  There are a LOT of things that won’t make their way back in here.  And the amount of dust I wiped away was embarrassing.

Dan has been busy in the garage, cleaning and straightening.  He finished some odds-n-ends leftover from the fence project, mowed the lawn and replaced a rotting board with some brick near a window well outside.

I’ll be continuing to work at getting things finished up inside with a few breaks to hang laundry out and weed a couple of flower beds.

Why all the motivation?  We have company coming on Thursday! My favorite sister-in-law and her husband are coming.  Her second son and his partner and little boy will be here too.  We love having company!  And the motivation to get things all cleaned up is good too.

It promises to be a busy week with baseball games on three of the nights and then family arriving for the weekend.  I’m looking forward to all of it!

Will you be getting together with family for the 4th of July?
