is almost gone!
It has been a busy month. It kicked off with a colonoscopy, which I came through with flying colours. No bowel issues found and the medications used during the procedure were thoroughly checked and found to be free of my allergen. It was wonderful to lose consciousness knowing that I'd probably wake up again!
I've been enjoying my little job, learning a lot as I go along. The people are pleasant enough to work with and the work itself is not stressful, a good situation all round.
Attila and I have been spending a lot of time just being. We have managed during the month of July to: pick wild blueberries, swim at the beach, go for a boat ride on the lake, watch shooting stars on a clear, warm night, hear from old friends and visit with friends. Having a good time doesn't have to cost a lot of money. It seems like more recreational activity in one month than we've experienced over the past decade!
Attila's south deck project is almost complete, still to do is the painting and staining. Thanks to Lares help, the project got off to a quick start and will have an early completion. Attila has the wood split and stored in the woodshed for the upcoming heating season. We have the survival basics covered early in the summer season, for the first time since living here.
I have had little time to read during the month of July. So little time that the book I borrowed in June is still sitting on the end table gathering fines and waiting to be returned to the library.
Summer will be over soon enough. The snow will fly, the roads will be covered with ice and the days will be short and crisp. Time enough then to read, research my family tree, update the code on web sites and explore new software. We are trying to make hay while the sun shines, after a very, very long and intense winter. Last winter was a winter I won't ever forget!
