Tomorrow, Brian's new employee starts to work. We had a lot to do in order to get ready for this milestone, so we called in the troops (our parents) and put in good shift starting this morning. A lot of work was done: trim was painted; carpeting was removed from office #2; office #2 floors were cleaned and waxed; general cleaning ensued; windows were cleaned; a book case was assembled; and I'm sure a lot of other things happened, but I can't remember everything.
We had a nice picnic lunch on the grounds. A Memorial Day without rain was a nice change of pace (though it's raining now). After lunch, we did a little more work, then came home. I took a nap, while Jake and Brian played a board game. After napping, I ran to Giant Eagle to buy some supplies for the office. Then, the three of us went for a short motorcycle ride (only my 2nd ride of the year, believe it or not).
After the ride, we came home and ate some leftovers, then started loading up the vehicles with stuff for the office. I got Brian's computer, phone, and printer hooked up and working. I still have a few things to do on the IT end of things, but things are under control.
I really, really wanted to spend a few hours in my garden today, but it was not to be. I got to spend 15 minutes in the rain before I had enough. There's not much left to do at the office until Brian obtains a building permit for the kitchen and bathroom remodel, so I should be able to spend some quality time in my garden soon enough.
I'm drinking a glass of homemade Gewurztraminer right now. It is delicious.
