The sun is shining. The temperature is in the mid to upper 70s. It is a wonderful day.
And I've finished several outstanding projects. I just installed a new, on-demand water heater at Village Craftsmen (it wasn't too hard to hook up, and it provides unlimited hot water), unclogged a stopped drain (the new, improved Liquid Plumber works like a charm), and I (with the help of Juana) did a thorough cleaning of my gypsy wagon. It feels good to strike things off a list!
But the best news is that my son, Stefen; his wife, Snee; and their oldest daughter, Zoe, will be on the island sometime this afternoon. They can only stay a couple of days (the whole family will be back in July), but it will be good to see them. We couldn't have ordered more perfect weather.
