Things have a way of evening out. The weather is warm here and the digging is done for my project with the pump and the new pump is on its way from Washington State. I think I have all the material to finish the job. Life is good.
Here is some of Shirl’s azaleas. She is a little down and for the first time in her life yard work has taken a back seat.
This is the coach nestled in our site in town with country atmosphere. Hey, and the next door neighbors have a beagle puppy who is a sweetheart. She comes out to talk to me. She says she is almost a year. She sorta smiled when she said that the original owners gave her away to this wonderful family because she could not bark. I heard them say, ‘a beagle is no good that has no voice.’ It hurt my feelings, so I fooled them as you have noticed, now I can talk big time.
She is usually behind that white/grey fence.
The canvas covers the digging. Shirl said the weather man is calling for rain and bad weather tomorrow.
This is the woods behind the coach, in front is woods also and has a swing I built 20 years ago that we have spent hours in the shade talking and entertaining the kids and grands.
We just had a veggie pizza with Shirl, now we will enjoy a quiet evening and dominoes. Life is good, for us.
