June welcome

I'm a bit late with a June post, it's already the 7th...the days seem to fly by.  Last week it was damp and rainy mid week and by the weekend, hot, very hot (low 30's C).  We pulled out the portable ac and set it up to discover that a very important piece was missing...a clear length of plastic hose.  Now I recall seeing it during the garage clean up/clear out....no points for remembering because in the meantime the water coming out  of the ac port would mean emptying the temporary cup way too often.  An old hose and duct tape worked, well sort of till DH headed to the store for the correct hose tubing.  All is well, no puddles and it's humming just fine.

As much as the benefits of ac are lovely, the early morning quiet with the open door to the cool air is bliss.  That and a fresh cup of coffee. Well the silence is broken as the puppy of the house has decided that the Dad of the house should be up, let's get this day started!  Life through the eyes of a puppy, eat, play ,make noise .. repeat then nap.

I'm part way through a sewing project for an exchange.  It's coming along quite nicely.  Hopefully I can assemble and mail the parcel by the end of the week.  It is nice to have some time to make things.

Our big pictures plans at least for now see us staying where we are.  The real estate market is over the top and prices so out of reach for most folks. We are very fortunate to live on one level ground floor unit.  We're near to everything yet still enjoy a faraway feel while sitting on the patio.

For me there are more better days.  The sadness is being replaced with memories and happy thoughts. Finding reasons to smile and laugh, it is a work in progress.
