The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

I have zero complaints about the weather recently. The rain moved through last weekend and early in the week and left us with absolutely perfect weather from Wednesday onward. Highs in upper 70's and lower 80's...high 50's and 60's at night. Our windows have been open for a few weeks now but this week the house temperature was just about as perfect as it was outside. Past few days have been sunny, clear, and breezy...makes me even more thankful to live around these mountains.

I flexed off some time yesterday afternoon from working Monday night and Thursday night and got to spend some time running errands with my guy. We went to dinner with my friend K and then went to see her house remodel progress. It is looking so amazing - I can't wait (for her sake!) till it is done and she can enjoy 2 years of hard work! And then we can cook and can things in her awesome kitchen too! I might just move in to her guest room - as long as Chad can come!

Today we've been doing mostly house our house and at the in-laws house. We went over first thing this morning so Chad could get on the roof and clean out some gutters. As it turns out, they were actually very clean just needed soma adjusting so things would flow correctly. I used my time to sweep off the in-laws upstairs deck. I was just sweeping all the leaves and acorns off the edge until I realized that there was a craft project buried there somewhere and bagged up all the falling acorns. You'll see what I will do with them soon. Came back home after lunch and we worked outside most of the afternoon. I/we replaced the screens on both back doors (one needed it badly and one just sort of badly) so now we can really do doors and windows open. Chad is working on our rain barrel stand - that gets them up off the ground about 6 feet so we get more gravity feed. It was a little wider than it needed to be and sticks out in the sidewalk. He is going to probably work on that some this week, since he has enjoyed his staying home week so far.

Please keep praying for us and the job front. A new employment situation for him needs to come sooner rather than later so please keep that in your prayers. We are trying to be patient, responsible with finances in the meantime, but it is a little stressful.
