DH went and got a burn permit yesterday. It doesn't cost anything to get one, but apparently just lets the Forest Service know where burns are being done. Last month we didn't need a permit, but it's getting warmer and drier out now. Just some scrap lumber and brush scraps out at the property. The river is so high right now. We are up very high, so nothing at all to ever worry about, but there is some flooding starting in other areas in the next county over. It went up two feet just overnight. Some major flood warnings in the city area for these next few days.
DH just texted me that the excavating guy was there and getting to work. Yay. It will be so nice to have those huge piles of dirt cleaned up. Once done, the builder will be able to start framing on the shop now. The builder is also the one who does the concrete patio and driveway pads (he doesn't sub out that work). We are going to do some concrete stamping/coloring type of design. He mentioned they just bought a new concrete stamp that has mountains and an elk in it. We are thinking that might be pretty neat for the pads in front of the garage.
DD brought me Mother's Day gifts when they came. A cute birdbath, another Netflix card (perfect timing) and some M&M's. I think it now must be chocolate that is causing my face to break out. It had cleared up the past 2-3 weeks and now today it's back.
If anyone has any good Netflix series or movie suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I just finished The Ranch and Grace and Frankie and also watched the movie "Our Souls at Night". I've read that book several years ago, too.
Next Tuesday I go in for my ultrasound on my left breast. It's at a radiology place next to the main hospital in the city. She said it would take about a half hour. I'll be glad to get that resolved, too.
DD had brought over a bunch of bananas with her, thinking they'd go bad by the time they got back home. She had put them in a plastic grocery bag on the trip over and they got pretty ripe just from that. I decided to use up what I could last night and made two loaves of banana bread out of them.
DH called his dad again last night to see if the kid got a hold of him about mowing the yard. He did (good kid!) and will come over Saturday. $12/hr, so it shouldn't cost them more than $25 a mow, I would think, if that. Plus, he'll be able to use FIL's mower.
I just did an M-Turk survey that is supposed to pay me $3.50. Yesterday I managed to do a little over $5 worth of surveys. Some days I can't get motivated at all to do them, other days I'm motivated but can't find much to do and/or I've already done them.
