Here are a couple of photos to show how the kennel is shaping up this year.

Indoors, I hired the daughter of a friend who is a very good carpenter and handy-woman to install some new light fixtures in the entry hallway, replacing the old fluorescent tube fixtures with more modern and allegedly more efficient lights, and repaired a leak in the plumbing in my utility room.
I only have one more task on my summer project list, which is to clear a bunch of black spruce trees away from the house. That can wait for another R&R as this one is winding down. I'm also waiting to decide whether I want to buy that tractor, which allegedly has enough power to knock most of those pesky trees right down.
Meanwhile, I've eaten my supper, taken some ibuprofen, and I'm hearing a hot shower calling my name. There won't be any Saturday night on the town partying for Ol' Swanny tonight - the brain may be willing but the body just can't hack it. My back is reminding me that I am not eighteen years old, and haven't been for quite a few years.
