Calvin seems like he might be starting to react to his name.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2009 1:30 PM
Just got home from church.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2009 2:29 PM
Trying to convince Calvin it’s a good idea to take a nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2009 6:56 PM
Finally decided it was time to get a couple more toys out from the shower loot for Calvin to try playing with.

Calvin had a late night last night but I’m surprised he’s still sleeping.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2011 9:25 AM
Calvin just woke up. I love not having a morning baby :)

It’s too hot to do anything useful . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2011 1:12 PM
I’ve gotten all my weekend “must do” tasks completed but I’m not feeling motivated enough for anything else.

My new-to-me stove drives me absolutely insane. I still haven’t figured out how to make pancakes on it. *sigh*

We need more bookshelves.

I think Julian’s stuff is breeding and taking over our house.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2016 10:16 PM
There are 4 fire trucks outside our house, apparently for the house kitty corner to us.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2016 10:29 PM
I think the excitement is over. Still three firetrucks but it looks like cleanup.

I’m fairly positive that 1) we don’t need 5 thermometers especially as 2) they’re going to disappear when we need them.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2017 10:54 AM
Huh, one of the thermometers is set to use Celsius.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2017 8:42 PM
Well, someone is illegally setting off very nice fireworks behind our house. Seems a bit premature given how light it is though.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2017 9:10 PM
From my back deck.
Fireworks above a city outline. The fireworks  are red sparkles and make the sky a deep pink.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2017 10:21 PM
My backyard firework show is still going on but I suppose I should go to bed now.
Another large firework display over the tops of city houses. This time the sky is blacker and the fireworks are a combination of white and pink fire.

I really feel that ⁦@calvinsdad⁩ should be in this hike: mountains and engineering!
A sign posted in front blackberry bushes. The sign shows mountains. It points out the height of mountains and says: Mt. Baring 6125 ft Philadelphia Min. 4257 IL Mt. Index 5979 11 ML Persis 5452ft The power lines overhead bring electrical power from Columbia River Dams to supply much of the electrical energy used in Western Washington. The Lines overhead carry power at 340,000 volts. The lines to the southwest is rated at 500,000 volts. These power lines and the energy they carry are owned by the US. Federal Government.

I have started The Walking to get a feel for Seattle’s neighborhoods.

Well, the kitchen is allegedly all unpacked except I appear to have lost my Christmas cookie cutters which also includes my donut cutter. (Which I was planning use today.)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2021 7:21 AM
I know what box it was an, and it’s been unpacked, so I’m confused.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2021 7:24 AM
Whew! Third time through the kitchen I found them!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 4, 2021 10:44 AM
Turns out I was also out of powdered sugar but at long last we have donuts!

The beach is indeed walkable from our house (though it takes about an hour).
The beach toward the evening with cloudy skies.
