Busy, busy, busy. . .

The wedding is only two weeks and a day away! Two weeks from today is the rehearsal dinner and I plan to be ready for it.

We have been busy over at Brandon's every day. I have been trying to tidy up a bit and dogsit for Jax during the day. There have been several deliveries, and FedEx won't leave packages on the doorstep, so someone has to be there. They also are trying to get something done with the backyard so that it looks good around the pool. The previous owners had put in some rock. . . put down the mesh first, then rock, then forgot about it. Grass and weeds will eventually grow up through that stuff and the previous owners didn't take care of it. So now he is trying to get something done. We cleaned out all the dead grass/weeds the other day and workmen have been coming and calling to give quotes on what will be done. No decision has been made yet, but we will be there when the work starts.

Jax has been a lot of fun. I have been taking him for walks, trying to every morning. I don't always get to, but he really likes it. He likes to chase squirrels, so it can be a bit of a challenge. He also likes chasing those skenks. . . the little lizards. He got a tiny one the other day and it must taste badly because he spit it back out. It was dead though.

A guy came the other day to fix the sliding glass door. Didn't know you could get that service. They removed both doors and put in new rollers. Then they cleaned up the track with some acid and replaced a part, then put the doors back in. What a difference that made. The door was hardly able to be moved and after they fixed it, I had to lock it in order to wash it. The movement back and forth would cause the door to move. They also replaced the screen in the screen door which was torn. The owner of the company said he used to be in mortgages. He lost his job with the economy, so came up with the idea to fix sliders. In Florida, there are a lot of those and he said he is always busy. Doesn't make as much money, but makes a living anyway. That is good.

Today we are going to look at some rock to see what Brandon wants to put in the back yard. He may have sod done. . . just depends on what he decides. We try to do the running around since they both work.

Till next time. . .
