  7. Piano recital was nice. Wide age range of performers and wide array of music choices among the 12 and over crew. Dd is craving hot dogs, so we’ll build a fire in the firepit and cook hot dogs/sauages and s’mores for dessert. A busy day, but a nice one so far.

Hi y’all, Today I got Ds up and out to a Scout conservation project, went to the Farmers’ market, did two other quick errands on that side of town, took some things to a friend and stayed to visit, helped Dd clean out and reorganize her closet, and went to a graduation party for my nephew. About to go read my book. Need to remind Ds to shower.

I washed them in detergent to get rid of the residue, let then dry, and reapplied. You Tube videos and web articles were super helpful on how-to.
