It's official. Summer is over. Want to know how I know? It's seven AM and I am up, showered, and dressed.
I have not been up this early in eight weeks - or thereabouts!
Now we have to get the house and yard ready too! The pool has already been drained, but I put it up to dry in the back yard and of course - it started to rain. i still need to get back there and scrub it out, so I guess it is not that horrible that it is wet, after all, I will have to get it wet to scrub it, won't I?
The dog house needs it's light put in and it's door hung. Smokey does not spend a whole lot of time outside in the cold, but if and when she does need to be outside this winter, I want her to be warm. (my dad told me that a lightbulb in the dog house, so long as the dog house is off ground and is solid, with a good door covering, will heat the house up enough for the dog to be comfortable.
I also need to find the patio furniture covers. I misplaced them last year already, and I saw rust on my beautiful bistro table this spring! I thought they were in the furnace room, but we looked for them last year there. I might just have to give in and buy a new set, but I want my table covered!
I am NOT ready for snow. hell. I don't feel ready to send my boys off for another year of school!
