Unnecessary Commuting

Today, I made a mistake in terms of commuting. I was under the assumption that our plumber would be done, and that we could move back in to our place (we’ve been staying in Frankfort for a long while – three weeks now, by our count). Liz was less certain the plumber would be done, but didn’t want to argue with me as I was frantically getting laundry done and things arranged, the night before.

July 4th in Frankfort

We pulled out the aluminum brake, and worked on getting some large sheets measured out and folded up. In the course of the process, I ended up misaligning one of the (large) pieces, and we made a bend that nearly wrecked one of the pieces. Instead of a straight line, my mistake ended up causing a slightly diagonal bend.

Woodworking and Cupcakes in Frankfort

A dangerous combination: children and sprinkles. The containers for sprinkles have extremely wide spouts, and really are designed for adults. When a kid gets a hold of one of these things and pours, the sprinkles just come out like they’re pouring water.

Father’s Day in Frankfort

On our way back to Frankfort, we stopped off at a nearby Kmart Superstore. Tricia and the kids are coming in to town sometime next week, and boy, are the kids going to be excited when these guys get rolled out.

Spring is Here

I took this photo near dusk, but it felt like a nice glimpse into the weather we had today. It was close to 70 out, and Liz and I were visiting Bob and Julie in Frankfort for Easter Sunday.

Xmas in Frankfort

It’s been a very relaxing few days with Julie and Bob. Though there has been one day where I’ve been working on my laptop (in the dining room), the rest of the time has been a very comfortable, and slow passing of the hours. We’ve watched a lot of movies (which I always fall asleep to), and have had a lot of good food.

Helping Bob with the House, in Frankfort

We moved a lot of things around, threw out a ton, and also got some heavier items shifted up to the attic and down to the basement. All in all, a pretty productive day. Though the garage is still full with things, it’s markedly more organized and you can walk through it and access more than before.

Discovering a Warren of Baby Rabbits in the Backyard, Frankfort, IL

In Frankfort, while visiting Bob and Julie… Liz and I got to see something pretty cool. Out in the backyard, Julie showed us a small patch of ground by one of her bushes. There was a small patch of ground that was pulsing a little, moving around every so often. I didn’t know what was going on, but Liz (with a lot of hesitation) started to peel back the ground a little bit… and this is what we saw:
