Summer Adventures

I was fortunate enough to join a friend on the weekend for a walk in the mountains with our dogs. Most of the time I take our amazing scenery for granted, but it's eye opening to see the landscape through the eyes of one who was not born in this country.

The one downside: my "city girl" of a pooch has a blister on her paw from the longer walk and rougher terrain than her usual jaunts.

Five Feet, Four People

The DNA results are back from the feet found off the west coast of Canada. Two of the feet match, meaning they are now only looking for four missing people.

My garage door still isn't fixed. Thankfully it's summer and the weather is nice. If it were -30 with ice and snow, I wouldn't be quite so relaxed about having to park my van in the driveway.

The door guy has been, done some repairs and maintenance, and gone. We're waiting for a part so he can fix it. I'm hoping it will be done in the next day or two - we shall see.

The door is fixed! I got the call at work today that my door man had been to the house and fixed the overhead garage door. He asked if it was OK if he didn't invoice me until next week as he doesn't have the exact cost of the part he picked up from his supplier. Hmmm, my door is fixed and I don't have to pay for it yet? Sounds good to me!
