SON WILL BE coming down for the fireworks show at Elephant Butte Lake. Been a long, long time since I have seen fireworks over a lake. Elephant Butte Lake State Park waives the admission fee that night for the show. Will probably grill something before going out and make apple pie cake for dessert.
BEEN TRYING TO fix the south side of the carport shed so that when it rains the water runs off the roof to the outside of the wall, instead of the inside! I managed to get half fixed so the corrugated metal roof edge extends beyond the wall; but, because of the inconsistent structure on the other half, am not coming up with a solution yet. I tried applying a strip of gutter drip guard, but it's going to take two people to fix it. Shannon, our city trash hauler that works our area, said today he'd come help me if I needed it. I just may ask him.
AND OUR OLD neighborhood trash dumpster is now gone and we are using our new poly carts. I want to build a little alcove to put ours and a neighbor's poly cart in later this fall.
FINALLY GOT AROUND to finish putting up the front sidewalk solar lights and I am pleased with the effect they give off at night. I blacked out half of the lens so the light would only show on the sidewalk.
|Here I am blocking off the light side that is not to be painted.|
|Spray painted the "back" side of the lens.|
|How they look in the daytime; and . . . .|
|how they look at night time. I grouped 3 lights together||.|
WE ARE IN the traditional monsoon season now, but nothing yet. A lot more clouds float by each day than a month ago, but they have their mission over on the eastern side of the state I guess. What rain does fall, evaporates before getting near us. It does smell good though.
BACK TO WORK as it is my day off - "my Sunday" - and I still have laundry, mopping and napping to do today.
