This means taking off the wallpaper sooner than I had planned. We used a steamer and I took off every square inch of that wallpaper! It was a terrible job!
It was also invigorating to clean under the washer and dryer! It feels good to be dust bunny free!
Now just the oven, electrical, pendant lights, chandelier, molding, and finishing the floor,,, Not to mention the return of the cabinet maker as soon as some of the panels come in!

The good news is, I can play the banjo again, although it is still hard to do pull-offs or big chords.
Ed went to therapy with me today and Ed and I sang "I've Endured" for the office! We felt like it was a fitting song after all we've been through in the past 6 months!
Here's a video of our singing!

There is a derelict milking shed on the property.
We've started working on developing a website for the Alpine Nature Center, as there would probably not be a physical presence in town for a long time. We're temporarily hosting it at https://naturecenterblog.wordpress.com/. Maybe you'd like to visit it and give us suggestions for what you think should be on the site!

Mabel really loved watching the ducks!
Ed really loved showing Mabel the ducks!
Unfortunately, going down the slide wasn't always as smooth as it might have been!

We stopped at Taqueria27 for lunch on the way home. Judging from the outside, we thought it would be our new favorite taco dive. But, inside it was fancy-schmancy! The food was fresh and delicious. Maybe our new favorite up-scale taco place!
There are three locations in the Salt Lake City area. We were at the Foothills location. You can stop by on your way home from the zoo sometime!

Mom always amazes us about how clever she is. She was telling us how she went to the BYU TV Roku channel to show her home evening group an episode of Relative Race, about people searching out people who share their DNA! It sounded so fun. I want to be a contestant!

I hope we have more weather like this so we can go to the park again soon!
Velyn chose The Secret Wife by Gill Paul. It was a great choice, as it was a historical novel with a very complicated love story. There was lots to discuss afterwards. I enjoyed it very much!
She prepared some great snacks, and demonstrates here how to eat them! She is so fun to talk to because her English accent is so beautiful!
The weather was sunny and crisp. If we hadn't been in the shade the whole time we would have been hot!
Apparently, this is more commonly called the "devil's eye." I found some nice pictures of it at this blog, in case you want to check it out!
