Productive Easter Weekend

Not many people consider yard-work fun, but power washing things is a BLAST for me. Dawn and I went up to her parents this weekend and I got to power wash the back patio where the dirt had built up over the years. It was amazing how the concrete appeared to be clean, but after a little soap and soak it really took off a lot of the dirt and build-up. The job took a few hours, but I had a lot of fun cleaning the patio and getting out the patio furniture while everyone else was getting ready for the 100 year old birthday party later. Dawn's grandfather passed away about thirty years ago, but her father's brothers came over and they shared stories and photographs. The stories about life back in the early 1900's was amazing and so were the stories about the military life from then. Imagine being overseas for nearly four years and never coming home. It is amazing what people did and sacrificed to ensure we remain free today. It was a great weekend and the weather was even better.

We will still be mild today with a high in the low 60's and a stray rain shower possible. Same for tomorrow with a stray shower possible, but much cooler temperatures with a high only in the upper 40's followed by freezing temperatures Tuesday night. We will dry out for the rest of the week and slowly warm our temperatures back into the 70's for next weekend, but trading that for a chance for rain. Saturday looks like our best chance for rain with maybe a lingering shower Sunday, but we will keep an eye on the timing of that as it gets closer. Stay warm for the middle of the week and enjoy the mild start. Have a good one!

  1. Sounds like a great weekend. We, too, love hearing the old stories and are big history buffs. We stop at historical sites when we travel and like to imagine the people who lived through those times.

    Love the weather! Should I thank the weatherman?? ;) We are on our way home to Ohio from ten weeks at sea: Port Canaveral (Easter morning) to Georgia (last night) to Tennessee (tonight) to Cincinnati )tomorrow afternoon.)

    I'm sure there is plenty of yard work waiting for us at home.

    All the best,

  2. Travel safe! I have loved seeing all the photos from your trip. Totally jealous being land-locked over the last month. Weather looks dry for your return.
