Happy Fourth to all the Americans on here and a good Thursday to the rest of the world.

Miz Anne is out sweeping down the exterior walls of the garage in preparation to putting on a coat
of oil based exterior paint while we have some dry weather.

I've got fig preserves cooking down and the hamburger dills are undergoing their four-stage wash to
get the lime residue off and will then be canned.

Sleepy is taking a nap with her head on my foot, not so much cause she loves me but because she
wants to be alerted in case anyone goes into the refrigerator for anything. B-)

Neighborhood is nice and quiet today and we got up when dawn cracked the first time and did a little
house cleaning and some prep work for the paint job.

Life is good.
