A Quiet Day

It has been a very quiet day around here. We had thundershowers last night and started this morning out with cloudy skies and cooler temperatures. It has been that way all day, cloudy and cool--unusual for July 6. We took a long walk this morning around our former ranch and managed to avoid the brainless horses. By the time we got back, Jazzy was a hot little dog.

I decided to spray at least one tank full of weeds and after I fell down the hill twice, decided one tank was enough! Michael worked in the garage all day long--he is making such great progress. We enjoyed our lunch out on the deck, the weather was so nice.

This afternoon, I installed a new HP printer/fax/copier/scanner successfully, finally and did some cleaning and straightening in my sewing room. Michael loves these shirts called brushpoppers by Wrangler--they are a very heavy cotton and have snaps instead of buttons. The shirts are hard to find sometimes. One of his brushpoppers had a fraying collar and I remembered that Grandma and Mom used to turn collars that were frayed if nothing was wrong with the rest of the shirt, so I gave it a try and it worked--so he can get some more wear out of one of his favorite shirts.

I noticed this small butterfly in the front yard grass this morning--he looked so delicate. We also had these large yellow butterflies today but I was never able to get a photo.

Garage building going on.
Another garage building view.
It is thundering again as I write this--it is that time of year in Montana. There have been 2-3 fires in the Billings area all ready; I hope we can avoid those this summer!
