|Natalia||Wow! Can you believe that the official start of fall is less than a week away?|
|Johanna||I know the summer always passes so fast!|
|Natalia||But you know, we shouldn’t let that get us down. We may still have some nice weather ahead of us. Are you going to try to finish those outdoor projects?|
|Johanna||Well, we are going to finish the fence, but some of our plans have fallen by the wayside.|
|Natalia||I know what you mean. We had so many plans in May, but most of them fell through the cracks. We had a few friends that promised to help us, but every weekend it’s the same thing; they|
seem to fall off the radar.
|Johanna||Yes, that can be difficult. I asked my son to help me paint our fence this year, but my requests always seem to fall on deaf ears.|
|Natalia||Hey, let’s not let our plans fall flat! Why don’t we get together and help each other!|
|Johanna||Great idea! This weekend we can build your deck, and then next weekend we’ll paint my fence.|
let’s get started!
