Write something about: the family vacation.
The wind was blowing pretty good this morning, so we didn't do any painting until the afternoon. I spent some time working on posts to schedule for next week (more on that in a second) and Kat preserved tomato sauce with our extra Romas.
Then we got to work after lunch and got a first coat of paint on the east side of the house. With all four sides painted, we even had time to do a second coat on the front. That will likely be it for this year, as it'll probably be too cold after we get back (almost getting to it, hold on) to do any more.
I'll share some before and after pictures tomorrow or Saturday.
Okay, here you go:
We're leaving Sunday morning for a little get together with my family. It's my parents 40th anniversary next week, and they wanted to celebrate by going on an Alaskan cruise with the kids. So Nicky is flying in from Boston, Sue is arriving from Calgary, and Kat and I will be driving over from Osoyoos.
The boat departs Sunday afternoon and will be returning the following Sunday morning. So that means a week's worth of scheduled posts for you guys - of which I've managed to do three so far. I think it's safe to say you can expect a drop off in quality towards the end of next week...
Anyway. I'm really looking forward to this - I've never been on a cruise ship before and the last time I went on vacation with my family was... um, Jamaica when I was 5? And to have an actual vacation and not just visit with relatives? I'm not sure we've ever done that. Maybe when I was young enough not to remember it.
So yeah, scheduled posts will begin on Sunday and continue through the 24th. Which means... I should probably get back to working on them.
