Mother's Day

Congratulations, condolences, and thank yous to all you mothers out there. Hope it's an easy day for you. I cleaned and reinstalled the bathroom fan for mum today. It wasn't easy, especially considering the fact that I was trying to put it in upside-down... But although my face may have looked like this at times:

And I may or may not have resorted to using a hammer.... With an ounce of common sense from Camy Hyde, and more than a few ounces of Sheetrock in my unfortunate eyeballs, I managed it.

There is, of course, a cover over it as well. Oh, and by the way, the clouds broke and the sun finally came out today! Check out that sky... It's still being a little bi-polar, but we have hopes...

And I hauled next week's wood.

Now I gotta go do some math....


  1. You're Mom is so blessed to had you for a son <3

  2. HaHaHa! Love the comment about the sky being bipolar! That SOOO describes the weather in Sitka at times.
