My Prize!

The prize I won for the photo contest arrived. Yay! It's a little pink Chanel suit. It's so cute!

I love the black trim and the vintage buttons. It also came with a cute little choker necklace and a book called The Pink Suit by Nicole Mary Kelby. It's a novel about the pink suit that Jackie Kennedy was wearing on the day her husband, President Kennedy, was assassinated. It sounds intriguing, and I've just finished a novel so I need  something new to read.

We are getting rained on this week. 3 big storms are supposed to be passing through and really dumping on us. Yesterday was the first storm. It dumped 1.5 inches of rain on us, according to our rain gauge. That is a lot of rain! Today it's been very windy. Rain will be here sometime tonight for the second wave.

The county inspector came by today to inspect the garage/shop. It did not pass. She found 4 things to complain about. They were valid complaints, though one is going to be a real pain to deal with. All the insulation is installed, and it's covered by a moisture barrier. Consequently, she couldn't see the roof purlins, She needs to see them, how they're attached to the trusses. She said pictures would work, so I showed her some I'd taken when they were building it, but she said that wasn't good enough. Not sure how this problem is going to be solved.

Tomorrow is puppy day. SQUEE!

Live long and prosper. \\//
