Scooped it up?

I almost wrecked once when a spider about the size of a pin head came floating down from the roof of my car..... so I knew the day that I would do anything for my child.... I smacked a rather large spider with the palm of my hand as it ran across his desk.

Today was a good day.

I helped DH clean up the backyard after a couple of months of neglect due to rain, and life. He cut the lawn while I weeded, cleaned up the rodo and hydrangia bushes, repotted some herbs and watered everything. Then we got rid of a lot of junk including an old bbq, Violet's paddle pool (there was a hole in it, we will get her a new one next year) and some wood from patching the fence. The DH power washed the patio and some of the furniture. It is going to look really nice for my in-laws coming to dinner tomorrow!

I then had a physio appointment this afternoon which I always like. We are slowly getting my back and side muscles settled down.

Now I am about to put the finishing touches on the menu and shopping lists for Explosion, our week long youth service conference. We feed them Lunch and dinner and they go out into the community and help in a bunch of ways.

Oh, and the girls in the neighbourhood heard I had made blue cupcakes and want me to make them some rainbow ones....sure, in my spare time

Well, I was going to sign off and go to sleep but then I saw Dawg's pic of the spider. Now I have a mental image of the spider eating the kittens from the funnies thread. I'll never aleep well again.

We got an automated call from the city. The water mains on our street are being "rehabilitated". They will be turning off the water from 9h-12h on Tuesday and from 09h-16h on Wednesday.

So, I scrubbed a bucket and filled it with tap water and I filled the espresso machine, the kettle, an empty 2 L pop bottle, and an empty 1 L wine bottle (with a screw top) with filtered water. I made sure the Britta is full.

This is my street:



The hose and white pipes are our temporary water supply, hooked up to a fire hydrant.
