It doesn't seem as bright this year as it was last year, but it's still brighter than the regular orange day lilies I have on the side of the house.
Bob and I have been accumulating a bunch of stuff around here. No, the front yard wasn't covered in cars, but the back yard was looking really messy. We decided to haul off all of the stuff that had metal in it that we could. I swear the man played too much Tetris as a kid. Let's just say that he was determined that we were taking it all to the recycling center in one trip.
Yes, that's a go-cart upside-down on top of everything else. He strapped it all down really good and we took off. It's about a 6 mile or so drive, but we made it without mishap. It was kind of scary and everyone was passing us as quickly as possible on the highway, but I really couldn't blame them.
The kids thought it was really cool when they used a claw to empty out that trailer. On the back of the trailer was a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. The guy got all three at once with that claw. That was pretty cool.
Last month I mentioned going library hopping and checking out 29 books. I'm happy to report that I made it though 24 of them, and a week later checked out another 23 from a different library.
A few months ago I made a list of the series books I had been reading and decided to try to finish them before going into new ones. It didn't work out as planned as I've been adding to the list and it's now up to 30+ pages in Word. However, I can say that making that list is helping me figure out my lists for the library and I am catching up on the series I had started as well as starting new ones.
Clone of Bob got his permit and I have to say that he's really not a bad driver. He's a little nervous, which is understandable, and he goes the speed limit, which is smart. He did good with his driver's ed teacher and he's been with me a couple of times and hasn't scared me yet.
