I got my wish! Not only did it not rain during the day Friday, it didn't rain that night AND ... it didn't rain TODAY either. And ... it may not rain until tomorrow night.
That gave me the time I needed to finish a project I started on Friday. (More to come on this ...)
The weather has been glorious, even if the wind has been a little rambunctious. The good news on that front is that it has blown many of the leaves out of the yard!
The mother had some kind of epiphany today and has settled on two things she wants for the front of the house (spurred, I'm sure, by my project). I spent some time this morning exploring the first of the two and then this afternoon she made a phone call and we're off to deal with it tomorrow.
I'm tired. I'm grubby. But, it's been a good couple of days. Will have lots and lots more to talk about soon.
