Day 66 (4)

Mixed feelings about retiring the pool after 5 good summers with it. I told my friend it is a little like a 4th child, the amount of time I put into it over the years.  But I am happy I was able to eek one last summer out of it and "closing" it for the summer is always kind of a relief too. We will most likely get a replacement in same model/size for next summer. Gotta peel this one off the ground first though...

Day 65 (4)

Keep falling behind a day or so... just realized Day 65 in the 4th go around means I have technically posted 365 #100happydays things! So that is cool.

Milo's Creeper backpack came in the mail from China about 11 days earlier than the revised/delayed delivery date. So that is cool too.

Stew wore his "box of popcorn" costume to the Scout meeting Monday night. A few party pooper people noticed it kind of looked like a "box of dirty diapers" but whatever. It is big popcorn kernels people, duh. I guess I should be happy I am sufficiently removed from diapers that that didn't occur to me until too late in the process.

Day 64 (4)

Probably got boys in pool for last time this summer as after a good long run of keeping it clean, it bloomed some algae seemingly overnight last Friday and I think I won't bother spending money & time try to clear it up again for only a handful more swims...

Finished a "box of popcorn" costume for Stew to wear to first Scout meeting Monday night.

Ate chocolate & chinese and got fitting fortunes in both.

Day 63 (4)

Got Wiley to mow both the front and back yard in one day. If it was up to me that would be last mow of the season but I suppose summer will take its time leaving.

Day 62 (4)

Made a big popcorn kernel from trash bags, stuffing, hot glue, and my old fave duct tape. To be used in a costume for Monday night.

Stew continues to be crafty making paracord bracelets for possible Scout fundraising item. I got to keep the first 4 color one he did that was too small for him.  We worked at table together churning out popcorn pieces and bracelets & listening to music.
