Full of Grace

  • The body of the deck is finished and usable, but we are still undecided about the skirting and final design of the kitchen area. And so I am getting a much needed break from construction while we shop for new deck furniture. (yet another thing we cannot agree on)




  • An anesthesiologist who really listened to my concerns and put me to sleep and woke me up with no issues.  

  • Watching Beaner receive her Masters in Social Work degree. And then listening to her talk about how she wants to help kids who have suffered from trauma find their voice.  So damned proud.

  • Very thankful for whoever made the cannolis at the restaurant we went to after graduation. Best cannolis ever.

  • Finally convincing Martha that the camp lawn mower (that was a used piece of crap when she bought it and felt responsible to always trying to revive it) had died its final death.  In deference to my tired, aching body I bought a self-propelled, push button start mower.  Now if it just came with a remote control . . .

  2. To say I am impressed is an understatement... The deck looks great. Congratulations to Beaner - that is a great accomplishment and very hard work! Glad your anesthesia was tolerable. I am with you on the lawn mower - but for some reason this year she is starting like a champ. If you find a remote, let me know... Although having the college kid home for a short while is working just as well!
