It's Friday!! Well, Virtually Friday

The work week is almost done, and in about 15 minutes the weekend will start.  When the alarm rings at 5 am, I'm not always a fan of 10 hour days.  But when the weekend comes, I am always glad that I only have to work 4 days.

Other than that little plug for 4-10's.....We spent last weekend, and quite a bit of this week catching up from the Denver Trip.  The lawn was deep and tall, and it took quite a while to mow.  The weeds were thick in the garden, and Annie pulled most of them.  Her flowers are looking pretty good, and didn't dry up and blow away.  The tomatoes are coming on.  The peas grew knee high, and we were so busy that we hardly ate any.  Last night I made rhubarb/current jam, and I think it was Saturday or Sunday I made a little batch of strawberry/rhubarb jam.  The rhubarb really helps it to jell.

I'm sure that everyone that reads these posts already knows about our newest grandson, Rufio Rok.  He is a cute little guy, and we are looking forward to when his mom and dad are recovered enough to have some visitors.

That is about it.  Just working around the homestead and enjoying life with Annie. I'm in a lot better spirits this time of the day/week than I was this morning. 37 days until the Kokopelli cruise at Lake Powell, so I have some boat stuff to do as well.  Have a good night all.
