It has been a pretty busy spring and summer.   The guys have been getting engines  up and running for the engine shows this year.  I have been working and trying to get Sirocco and I, so, that we can enjoy our time together without fear and anxiety.   Work is going great, have been busy learning the job.   I have also started going to the gym to work out and try to build up a little muscle.  The last time I lunged Sirocco he pulled the rope out of my hands and I went down to the ground and pulled lots of muscles, that is when I decided that I had to get myself back into shape!  I have been doing way too much sitting.   A job that requires you sitting most of the time doesn't help any!

My sister and mother are coming for a week long visit from Illinois, this week.  I now have to try to get the house clean enough, so that they are comfortable.  I have had my sisters son, (my nephew) out for the last couple of months.  It has been great having him here!   So, needless to say the next week is going to be a busy one.  We are hoping to be able to take out the boat for the first time this weekend.

We repainted our back deck, now we have a great place out back.  The porch and the patio are one of the best features of the whole house!  I think, if I could, I would move outside on the porch.  :)

Hope you are having a great week.

Love your header photo! Did you know that the Loon is the bird on our $1 coin, and of course we call it the Loonie.
My job is sitting all the time too, it sure got me out of shape; good thing I'm retiring at the end of this year.
