Las Stoolas

Las Stoolas

The Pits: Traci’s a bit discouraged about how long it’s taken me to build one porch stool (we both are, really), and is wishing to buy some stools instead of waiting another number of months for me to finish 3 more. The Peaks: Cars n’ Coffee with the boys (and Trek) this morning after making… Read more »

The Weeds Are Always Weedier

The Weeds Are Always Weedier

The Pits: Hot outside. The Peaks: Left work early to come home and get started on yard work. Hector’s dad is sick and is unable to do yard work.

The Pits: Kind of a frustrating day after receiving the news that our big launch wouldn’t happen this weekend. The Peaks: The boys seem to be enjoying zoo camp and have wanted to take a pic on the lion at the entrance, but there’ve been other kids on it each day this week. We finally… Read more »

Subtle Sunday

Subtle Sunday

The Pits: None, really. The Peaks: Today was our rest day from yesterday’s rest day. More rest and relaxation, to the point where we were all feeling a bit lazy. It was nice, for a change.

Home Again with the Seaside Blues

Home Again with the Seaside Blues

The Pits: Post-vacation blues. The Peaks: We had planned to be driving back from Seaside today, but instead we had a good night’s sleep in our own beds and woke up with a day full of no plans. It was rather restful and I was able to get the yard mowed, the trash taken to… Read more »
