Valentines Day

Happy Valentines day! To follow tradition, we got the kids each their own heart candy bar story. Shawn's- 'Mr. Goodbar' was so 'nutrageous' about his 'nerds' that he took them to see the 'watchamacallit' at the 'symphony'. Gracie's- 'Baby Ruth' had to 'Take 5' because he dropped his 'kit kat' on '5th avenue' with his 'butter finger'. Summer's- 'Heath' and the '3 Musketeers' went to the 'milky way' to see the 'starburst' and had 'mounds' of fun.

Thank you Dad for all your very clever ideas. I love to steal them!

Float Parade

Arizona's Birthday is tomorrow, and in celebration, the Fourth grade at Zaharis put on a float parade. Shawn's class made their floats in honor of Gila County. Shawn's float said, "Gila County Rocks!" on the top. He included pyrite, and some polished green stone, and many others. Gracie got to sit by Summer, and even participate in the Ice Cream Float party after.

Well, it's blue. (and flooded again) Dusty says it's to baby blue. Maybe I should make it more masculine. What's your vote?

Dusty finelly got a car this weekend 2002 WRX. And, it's blue! I love blue.
The drive way was quite colorful Sunday after Dennis (Dusty's dad) stopped by. We had the red rental, the blue wrx, the yellow truck and Dennis's green truck.

Sunday brought rain, which made my garage more like and indoor swimming pool.
But, I did start the painting. Primered everything, cieling, walls. I also got the actual paint on the Ceiling. Dusty and Dennis both wondered why I would bother to paint white over white. But, that primer will always look like primer to me. And yes, that is the RZR in the picture. Dusty would like to keep it in there. In a perfect would, we could. But, in a perfect world, the garage would never masquarade as a drapery workroom.

You can see the water puddling in if you look close. There is a retaining type wall on the east side of the house that was holding about 2 inches of water. It made it all worse. The garage drains into a corner, not out the door. We are going to break down that wall, and see if that helps at all.
