It was hot today. (OK, for those of you in the southwest, I know the 90s might sound appealing. But here in the Midwest, 94 degrees, coupled with wring-out-your-clothes-as-soon-as-you-open-the-door humidity, is awful.)
And I was out in it for about 10 hours today. I did take breaks, and I did spend a lot of time in the shade, once it reached the porch. (I'm happy to report that major progress was made on the porch. I'll have pictures tomorrow.)
I spoke to both Lawrence and my cousin earlier this evening and there's good news and bad news to report. The bad news: Lawrence had a hand injury a week or so ago and won't get stitches out until next week. He says he's OK though and he was actually excited that I bought a fence. As a result, we've tentatively set a date for the fence of July 23.
The good news: My cousin is coming either tomorrow or Wednesday to take down the old fence. Even better news: After I bust up the concrete, he will haul it away. Talk about a load off my mind!
But probably the best news of all: Dairy Queen is open 'til 10:30. (This, after finally getting a shower after being out in the heat all day.) Gimme a blizzard, baby!
