There is a fast moving rain storm coming in today. We did the morning chores under cloudy, cool skies. As we were finishing up, our wonderful electrician arrived. Remember when Brett and his friend replaced the water heater in the barn? Well, it stopped working and when Brett checked it he found that he must have wired it wrong and fried the thing. So, Don came up and fixed it, confirming that Brett had indeed made a mess of the wiring. Brett is an exceptionally handy husband but he isn't an electrician. Now we have hot water in the barn. Jackson will be pleased; he likes warm water for his bath.

This morning, when I got back in the house after chores, there was a message saying they had cancelled the delivery and to call to reschedule. I was pretty angry. No one will be home tomorrow and the laundry is spilling out everywhere. I made a few phone calls and they got us our washing machine delivered this afternoon. It's hooked up and working. Yes!
Then my tall riding boots died. The zipper bit the dust. The boots are old and I have certainly gotten my use out of them but the timing isn't good from an expense standpoint. I have huge calfs, like seriously HUGE. Off the rack boots don't fit over my calf so I have to get semi-custom or custom ones. The zipper in the old boots couldn't be replaced without costing a small fortune. So, I ordered new boots.
The clouds left at around noontime and the sky was a deep blue. I did some work in the garden, lingering outside despite the humidity that was building by the minute, because it was just so beautiful out there.
|Brett was busy making everything look fantabulous.|
|Strawberries are starting to ripen.|
|I love apple blossoms|

|Of course, they had to run up to see me.|
All in all, a good day at Aspen Meadows.
