Our house was broken into today. Someone threw a rock through a back window and climbed in. They only took a few things: my laptop and my roommate’s TV and camcorder were among them, so my posting may be even more infrequent than usual. Or not; we’ll see.
Aside from that, life has mostly been free of major misfortunes. Yesterday, I helped Seth install some custom wood finishes inside Shirley’s house. Our good friends Fran and Eric have returned (this time, with an army of friends) and will be volunteering their labor over the next couple of weeks, so Shirley will also get a custom tile mosaic, and we should make progress on some of our other houses as well.
Last weekend I went blueberry picking. Amazing! There were tons of berries, and now I’ve got two gallons to go through. Doug and Mark and I also went to the Biloxi High School stadium to watch the finals of the International Military Women’s Soccer Championship. Brazil beat South Korea 1-0. Who knew you could come across good soccer in Biloxi?
Aside from the above excitement, summer has been slow, and will likely continue that way. Still, I’m busy enough with work and frisbee, swimming, and various other activities. If you’re looking for a summer beach vacation, come visit and help relieve the boredom — we’ll show you a good time!
