Toby and I finished the under-the-house work on Saturday around 1:00. Yay-yippee-hallelujah! The actual ductwork was not a problem. It was kind of fun to fit the ducts together and make them come out where we had cut a vent in the floor. It was crawling around in the dirt and dust and sitting in cramped spaces that was not so fun. Then there was the critter who joined me. Toby was out getting duct stuff and I kept hearing this noise. Sitting there in the dark by myself with my flashlight wondering what it could be was a bit scary. I held the flashlight up as far as I could and looked around. I admit that I also hollered for Toby to hurry. It turned out to be a big bullfrog. Silly me.
When we finished the ductwork, we worked on the garden. Toby plowed up the garden and we planted tomatoes - lots of tomatoes. I also worked on weeding the yard and planting some grass in the area around the outdoor kitchen. Last winter we brought in filler dirt. So far we have grown great weeds, but very little grass. Later in the afternoon, we went to a big barbecue party. The food and friends were great, but we were tired and only stayed a short time - long enough to eat and play with the GGs.
Sunday was my DIL's birthday. We went with the family to a local Mexican food restaurant to celebrate. Keep in mind that GBN2 is only four years old. When we got seated and were looking at the menu, GBN2 announced that she could speak Spanish. Then she proceeded to show us by saying, "Uno, dos, tres." That was it. Of course, we all got a kick out of her Spanish. Later when the waiter brought the food out, he had a very strong accent while asking us who had what food. GBN2 looked up at me in awe and whispered, "He is speaking Spanish." Then she turned to the waiter with her big blue eyes and in all sincerity said, "Uno, dos, tres." The waiter did not pay any attention to her, but I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.
