Back to school . . . . .

No, not me!  But Dear Hubby.  He has decided that he has waited long enough to get his masters.  High school coaches are caught in a pickle.  They get out of school too late in the spring to go to the first summer session and start football too soon in August to go to the second summer session.

A random picture taken from our local paper.  I have no idea who these guys are!
So Dear Hubby has decided to go the "on-line is the only way" route.

Just wanted to let you know what excuse # 372 was on my long list of why we don't finish projects around here.  It will be worth it, though.

He has done some work since the bathroom was finished.  And I wholeheartedly mean "he".  It's too hot for me!  I used to like the sweaty work - many years ago before I got old.  But that's for another story.

Anyway, he is adding a lean-to to the side of his workshop to store the riding lawnmower, tiller, etc.  We have had them under a makeshift tarp-thingy for a while.  Those tarps don't last too long!

How it started.
Even this looks better!
As of today . . .he even put the posts and ledger boards up by himself.  Where are the adult kids when you need them!?
The latest in construction apparel!  A dish towel and electrical tape.  A man's gotta do what a man has to do!
Two a days with contact started yesterday morning in our neck of the woods.  With all the incidents lately, say a little prayer for ANYONE that has to be out in this heat.  Dear Hubby said that for the most part the teams are holding up okay but it has been brutal on them.  Specifically those young'uns who decided it would be better to spend their summer on the couch in the air-conditioning.  They'll learn their lesson by the time they are seniors!!

Stay cool!

Blessings, Cathi

What is it about our guys and working in the heat of the day? I certainly can't tolerate it anymore and just bringing out cold glasses of water is enough for me to jet back inside to the AC!!

My hubby looks like yours when he goes outside to mow the grass. He puts on this scarf thingy on his head and a wet towel around his neck. The heat has been wicked.

My husband thrives in the humidity...the hotter the better!
I just has to be a guy thing - I sweat just watching him from inside in the air conditioning.
Now that is some 'work fashion statement' he's sporting there.

Congrats to your hubby. I am not sure I could do on line courses. I really like books.
Your hubby looks like mine when he is working outside. I am like you. The humidity is a killer.
