A Laid Back Day

Michael headed off to work today early and Jazz and I went for a short walk--the grass was so wet, we both had very wet feet when we got back.

I did some phone work on health insurance and our state of Montana contractor's license. I also got a head start on some of my cooking for July 4. After lunch, the grass finally dried enough for me to mow our small yards.

Health insurance is such a rip off. As I have said in this blog before, we are basically self-insured with a very high deductible policy in case of catastrophe. The agent I spoke with today gave me better options for lower deductibles ($6000 instead of $10,000) but the premium was over twice as much as what we are paying now. So, I guess I either do more research or live with what we have.

We seem to have smoke in the air today--don't know if it is coming from the California fires or if a fire has started here in Montana from all the lightening we have been having. We have had so much rain it would be surprising if the fire was in Montana.

All the old timers say "when the wild roses bloom, high water is over." The rivers are still running strong but don't seem to be rising any higher, so maybe high water is over. This a waterfall Michael created in our little creek to give us more water noise and to the right of the waterfall is a wild rose bush in bloom.

A closer view of the wild rose bush.
Michael finished his project today and brought all the equipment home, YEA! Now he can help me get ready for this July 4 party.
