Mid August Evie, Lucy and I returned home to Arizona. Evie started teaching and we broke ground on our long list of house projects. The first two of which are the back yard and kitchen (the two places we spend most of our time).
On Labor Day we made our annual trip to the Dakota Five-O. Trevor and I drove out with the bikes and Evie & Karlene flew. It was a shorter trip with a long drive on each end, but fun camping and hanging out with friends nonetheless. The race is always fast and long, I finished 9th.
The MBAA puts on a fall enduro series so as executive director it’s my job to map out the logistics and organize the events. The first one was up at Sunrise Ski Resort and this weekend we head to Kingman, followed by Prescott in two weeks.
Last weekend I extended our patio out back with some pavers, just in time to have the turf installed today. It took 5 guys to move the 15′ rolls from the front yard to the back, they’re heavy!
Next is the kitchen. We’ll be removing the existing pantry and putting cabinets there instead, plus replacing all the existing cabinets, flooring and a new lighting configuration. We’ll be busy these next few months!
