fire pit, bedroom about done.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Last night may have been our last fire pit for awhile. Today a burning ban goes into effect for King County. I think we could still do our back yard fire pit even with the burn ban as the fire would be contained in a small area with a hose near by, but I don't know that we would or not. Maren was telling the kids about why there are burning bans and how the grass and trees are all getting very dry and it seemed the kids were taking in the information, but not a second later (after the marshmallows were gone) both Hans and Pres were trying to heat their roasting sticks to red hot so they could pull them out and burn stuff with them...not that sinking a red hot roasting stick into a piece of wood while it burns is not cool.

Our bedroom re-model is now about done. The actual bedroom is done, the ceiling and walls painted and the floors are finished. It went from an old tan carpet and yucky green/white striped wallpaper (left over from original owners) all around, and graying ceilings to light wood laminate flooring, no wall paper-cumin (kind of a dark orange) painted walls, and a bright ceiling. The room does look a little like an IKEA catalog, which is a nice change. Last night was the first time in a while that the furniture and bookcases and stuff was all where it should be. I still need to do the closet and the bathroom, but those won't be so bad as we can actually empty them and do the work in a few days. Once we finish those, then a big trip to the dump to get rid of the old carpet and stuff, then Maren can park her car in the garage again.

Today Hansen has VBS with Kole, this evening the VBS is holding a performance and having snacks and refreshments and stuff.

See you tomorrow.
