Last night was my 14-year-old niece’s belated birthday party – they did her up right with a dance floor and a dj, so the first one got rained out. I took pictures, and I’m SO PROUD of the job I did.


Somebody gave us a Jacuzzi hot tub. It needs work, but John feels like he can fix it. It’s huge, holds like 8 people. We moved it to the new house today and then did nothing else – that was a big job. Suddenly I can’t wait for cooler weather…

John is making chicken soup. It sounds and smells SO FRIGGIN GOOD, despite the 97 degrees outside.
