It got hot in a hurry. No kidding, it almost hit 100 out there today.
The good thing is the mornings are still comfortable. The bad part of that is, no sleeping in if you want to get anything done before it gets hot.
I got the one key element of the solar laundry room out of the way this weekend which was the hand powered washing machine.
The first two loads went off without a problem so Sunday morning it was time to showcase it in front of the girls and see how they would take to it.
To my surprise six loads in and they were looking for more to wash. I am sure it is because it is new, but just for that little bit of time we were together and working as a team for a greater good, even it was just washing clothes.
I looked at it as more of the washing of the soul.
Even the wife likes it and would like to do the wash in it at least once a week. She says it's the workout she is needing. I am grinning from ear to ear over it.
Today we decided to beat the heat and head to the lake. No, not the part where everyone else is at. We know of some real nice places reachable only by a four wheel drive so that keeps most of the riffraff out. The wife and I parked our chairs under the shade tree and took out our favorite reads while the girls played and splashed in the water.
We were all together having fun just like old times, I wished it could last forever.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and took time to remember the ones who gave their lives so we could have that weekend.
