*Rain Rain Rain*

That is what is in our forecast for the rest of the week... rain rain rain and crappy temperatures! Sunday it was a beautiful 30*C and today we're looking at a high of 13*C. This is just not right!! We had a few days of summer weather at least...and I hope we are lucky enough to get some more before we're staring at the shorter days of fall!

We started the job of organizing our basement yesterday ... what else are you gonna do on a cold and rainy holiday Monday??!! I have shelf space! There was $70 in bottle and can recycling... and 7 bags of old clothes that we dropped off at a donation bin. I got rid of paint and carpet remnants from when the house was built in 1996! There is a huge pile of stuff that needs to go to the dump and we've filled two huge recycling bins and have more that could go if we had the space (I think I will be heading to the community bin to dump the rest instead of trying to get it into our weekly curbside pick up... that could take a few weeks!). There is still work to be done, but it feels good to have done what we have done.... Bruce is off tomorrow and the weather is still supposed to suck... maybe we'll finish it tomorrow? Do a dump run at the end of the day? Wouldn't that be awesome!

But you didn't come here to hear about the dump my basement has become... you came here to see a card... so a card you will get!
