After a rainy week, we've had a great start to Summer with blue skies and warm air. It's going to get super hot next week, so I'm taking in the current forecast, which is decent temperatures but not brutally hot. This is my last week to work and then I'm going to be off for 2 weeks. No big plans yet but landscaping is high on the list, as well as re~staining this deck in the soft grey we chose, we do the front stairs as our builder didn't extend them to the columns like we asked, re~do the front path to the driveway (landscape pavers arrive this week), and re~stain the back deck in "Willow Mist" which is the lovely soft sage green we chose for back there. We did build the decking to hold the new shed this past weekend, so at some point, we'll also put the shed together, which makes me so happy as its a great size and we have a number of items that can come out of the garage and be housed in the shed instead. Then our plan is on a rainy day when we can't work outside, we'll re~organize the garage for the Summer. Can't wait to have that out of the way. Right now, the shed in its 2 gigantic boxes takes up an entire bay and its making it very difficult to move around in the garage. Frustrating. But we're almost there!
Work has been super busy and I'm looking forward to a nice break. We've settled in to a pretty good routine onsite. But the big change will be on July 5th, when all of our staff will be back together, in person, every day! I'll miss that as I won't be back to work until July 12th but we do see each other on Zoom all the time and most staff have come in a day here and a day there, so I won't miss anything. It will be fun to be back onsite once my holiday is over and see the offices filled up with staff. Right now, I'm at the end of the hall and can play my music thru the day as everyone who is currently onsite is at the other end of the hall. I'm going to have to get used to NOT playing my music so loud!
The birds woke me up extra early this morning so I'm now off to workout and shower, then drive in to work for the morning. I'll head home at lunch and work away this afternoon in our little office. No plans for tonight but likely I'll do some gardening as it will be cooler tonight. Last night, we were just going to head outside and stopped as the mama deer who frequents our forest had her brand new, still wobbly on his little legs baby deer with her. We froze then tried to capture some pictures. Mine are looking fuzzy so I'll ask my dd if hers turned out okay. They were so sweet together. I hope they continue to visit so we can watch the sweet baby grow. This happens each Spring but it still makes us stop and marvel. The moose family that visits has 2 babies this year as well. Tiny but impressive as well.
Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday.
Namaste my blogging buddies.
