DaNiece Returns

I only wanted to quit my job 6 or so times this week.  I can't quit though.  I have to support my nephew for the next 2 years and then fix up my property enough to be self-sufficient for the most part.  That means gutters and water storage, extra roof from patio covers and other shade structures, more fenced in space, a new culvert for the driveway, maybe solar panels or something like that, garden space.  I must keep working.

My niece came back!  My coworker likes to call her Da Niece because he is from Chicago.  I didn't think she would return but I am willing to contribute to her education in exchange for her help so she came back for the next 7 weeks.  I want her to get a part time job too if possible.  We have been looking for places to apply, Petco, Cold Stone Creamery, Taco Bell, a summer horse camp.  On the other hand, I don't want her to be too busy to help me.  It was nice to see temporary and part time jobs that I might be able to do such as office help or drafting.  I would not be opposed to some part time or temporary work once I leave my current position.

This evening we got a nice gentle rain which is very unusual for June.  May was unusually cool and I was gritting my teeth for a scorching June until the July rains start.  It was a nice surprise.  Saturday is still supposed to be 95 but that's better than 105.  I bought the rest of the trim to put up in the mobile home and I hope to get the other 2 skirting panels installed in front of the door.  Maybe we will clear a space for the water tank if we aren't too tired.  I bought more bungee cords for the pool cover.  It would be nice to go for a swim if the wasps haven't taken over.  Maybe I can put a bowl of soda out for the wasps so they won't bother us swimmers.  But, really, we should be working, not playing.

Yes, I'm glad I am able to help her earn money for college and I get help too. Win-win.
