Days Off.

So yesterday was an awesome day. We went kayaking for an hour and a half, hiked a bit to have a look at a kettle lake. Cleaned up the garage, or at least got a start on it, and scrounged a bunch of great rocks and boulders from a local dirt pile. So, now the tree in the front has a gorgeous rock edging. It looks great, and doing it was lots of fun, and reminded me of getting to do gardening at the cottage with Granny. I really miss her. And VanaIsa, and the cottage, and, well... no point going there.

We need so many rocks for the backyard it isn't even a joke. I know we're going to have to buy some, but I want a bit more variety than just the (industrial filler) "granite pebble 1"-8" mix."

This summer has not been nice enough to get the pool in yet, and we're both getting cranky. Because we're working around work, and the schedules of our guys, it's even more impossible. Every other day is rain, and all we do is plug in the pump to drain out the pool. Sheesh! In fact, I'm off to do that now.

On the other hand, we have been working out a lot of our personal issues, and it is serious rough going. Really, painful and difficult. All I can say is that if we make it out of this alive and married, we will be in a position to offer marital counselling to just about anyone.

Spouse One has a great big secret, and I'm super proud of her. We'll have to see how it goes, but just the fact that she's going for it is pretty impressive.
