In Which We Do Some Chores And Enjoy The Weather

Today Jer and I cleaned off the deck and borrowed a power sprayer from our neighbors down the street to get it ready for staining.  We're having a rash of days without rain right now, so it's the perfect time to take care of it.  We'll let the deck dry for a few days and then get to work.

In the process of cleaning I took a load of yard waste to the dump, and it looked like everybody else had the same idea about working outside, because I ended up waiting in line for over half an hour to drop everything off.  With the sun out and summer finally, finally here, everyone in our town is trying to get as many of their projects done as they can before the rainy weather moves back in. 

Otherwise the day was pretty laid back!  Connor stayed inside because it was a little warm for him to be out, and he rode his tricycle, stood in his stander for a while and did a long stretch of tummy time, during which he fell asleep and took a nap in the middle of the living room floor.  Guess we wore him out!

He's been having a bit of trouble keeping his meals down in the past few days; probably because of the heat.  So I think we'll try putting him on his pump in the daytime too instead of giving him bolus feeds and see if that helps.  That way he'll get his meals spread out over a much longer period of time and won't have as much in his stomach at once.

It's still lovely to have some sunny weather, though.  Bring on the blue skies!

Sunshine always brings all the "happy people" out and makes you want to clean up your yard. Then, once the HEAT sets in, it has the opposite effect! We have been in the 100's here in Southern California and we hide inside until evening!
