Returned from Seattle where I was delivering two cats from the Petersburg Humane Association to their new home with my Mother in Gig Harbor. Don't they have stray cats in Seattle? Yep, they do, but these two cats had been at the shelter nearly their whole lives (2 and 3 years). Sweet cats that just needed a loving home and I knew my Mom would give it to them. Well worth the trip especially when combined with celebrating my Grandma's 90th Birthday.
Chuck and I will be out and about all afternoon with the 4th of July Parade scheduled for 11:00am, Bed Races, Duck Races and a Log Rolling Contest to watch along with food and craft booths scattered along Nordic Drive to explore in between events. KFSK Fundraiser BBQ in the parking lot at Kito's Kave while we wait for the Blind Rowboat Races and the 2 X 6 Stomp races to begin. (will definitely get pics of this one!) Fireworks are scheduled after dark at 11PM.
We are house sitting again in the same place as last summer watching Lily the Cat. I've already been out berry and rhubarb picking in anticipation of doing more canning while we have access to a rather fine kitchen.
Chuck finished the 6th and last video in the Williwa series and will be taking a break from editing for a bit to get some actual work done on the boat. Sunshine expected into next week which would provide the dry weather needed to finally get some varnishing and fiberglassing done on Lealea.
And again, being in a house will allow us to spread out our computer gear and accomplish the arduous task of migrating our website to WordPress and a new server. Our goal is to have everything moved over by the end of July.
Meanwhile, the dry weather beckons us to come outside and play and celebrate our nations founding.
