Back home. Nice weekend spending time with family members. Both my gramma and uncle passed away in march and april. Nice to see gramma reunited with my grampa who passed away in 1994. Diabetes killed him. Now it killed my uncle as well.

Been working on rebuilding our patio but the heat has been a killer. 90 degrees today with a dewpoint of 70. I started today at 6 but had to quit at noon. Just cannot take the heat like I used to.

We'll be doing the same thing in a couple weeks at camp. After 4 years there, we finally decided to build a decent 16x16 deck instead of two 4x8 sections of deck stuck together.

Yes, it was hot today (95!) - not that I spent that much time outside.
Another day at work which seemed to go by very fast.

Looking forward to having the weekend off, as my eldest granddaughter is coming to stay with me from Friday to Sunday afternoon.
Should be fun

Jeff has business in Pittsburgh and she didn't want to tag along.
They'll soon be moving there... sigh..

Sorry to hear about your loss, Brian with the Grams and Uncle.
John, what a lovely thing to do for the playground.

Waiting for the kid to get here around 3.
Going to feast at a seafood and grille place.
After that who knows?
Knowing her, she'll be texting her pretty little fingers off, lost in phoneland.

It's been hot and muggy! or as we used to say in the UK (close).
Storms early morning hours, hit and miss most of the day tomorrow.

Kasey and I enjoyed our day.
That restaurant in Findlay was spectacular.
Shrimp cocktail,crab cakes, grilled swordfish, lobster mac and cheese, cuban sweet corn.
A really nice place.

Right now she's on the couch watching Hallmark Channel , texting friends and teasing the cat.
Predictable.

.. and I just showed her the forum thread where I've posted pictures of her in Selfies.
She said Nana! why would you do that, I look ugly.
Then she wanted to know if this place is like Facebook or something.
Told her no, it's better than Facebook and you are beautiful.

The talking head who claims to be a TV weatherman said that the National Weather Service says we got 3.14" of rain last night ... don't know if any of that is true, but I do know that there is too much water in the pool. Over the top of both skimmers (I have a low and a high skimmer) so it looks like I will be pulling out the gas powered water pump and pumping some water OUT of the swimming pool to prevent damage from water seeping behind the pool walls.

We sure got rain, and storms started at 3:30am.
One BOOM shook the house and we lost power for a second.
Had to reset the stove clock and reboot the box on the tv.

She wants to venture out to the mall today.
Maybe.

Doing sfa at camp today. It's 2pm and so far the only thing I have accomplished is frying up some bacon and eggs this morning. Oh. And I installed a wall mount for a 24" tv/dvd combo in our room. We now have 3 tv's in a 36' camper.

Well, we ended up going to the mall and all she did was want to go in the girl shops and look at clothes and say " I like that, but it's too expensive" "ohh I want that!"

Got any money for that kid, because I don't.

Then she wanted to get pretzels from Auntie Anne's and try on shoes (which were perfect and a shame that she couldn't find those in Defiance).

This is why I am thankful I never had a daughter lol

Jeff will be here around noon tomorrow to pick her up.

I made a nice breakfast casserole for dinner which she loved, so more of that in the morning for breakfast.

Love this girl to death, but she is spoiled and very bright, and often times a little manipulating.
I suppose that comes with the territory of losing your Mother so young and having other family members coddle you because of.

Sure is quiet again without Kasey here.
I napped, made a simple supper/caprese salad and some cantaloupe.
We got some more rain.
