Happy Birthday to my sweet dear husband who agreed to trek all the way across the country with me to a new home. Today Brett turned 40 years old. And he got the most amazing present:
a brand new septic tank
I was giddy as the truck showed up. I’d never seen a septic tank before. I passed Sid and his tank truck twice today in town too.
As they were getting started Boo and I ran into town to pick up some iced coffee and we got a chance to visit Clampitt’s Hardware store because the guys needed work gloves:
When we got back the tank had been pumped, and the tank was installed:
We ate lunch in town at the Filling Station which is a place I was looking forward to coming back to ever since last summer. And then Boo and wandered over to B&D Furniture to try and find a dresser or wardrobe for her. I just love the outside of this building and the RC Cola vending machine right in front:
Brett worked all day raking the landscaping back out and I caught up on some email. I still don’t have Internet so I’m trying to get creative on timing for posts etc so I get something done. I’m sitting on the back patio now and the kitchen is smelling amazing for dinner. I walked through earlier and I saw the strawberry pies being made:
Some new guests showed up today with kids Boo’s age and we haven’t seen her since. I think we need to buy her a watch that beeps on the hour (every hour) so she has to check in with us. Or an old beeper. She won’t have a phone until she’s an adult, but I’ve got to find a way to reign her in a little with all this newfound freedom!
