It's been a busy week around here, and I just have not had time to sit down and
go through pictures and put them in any real order. So... I'm going to try to get
He's going to kill me for showing this picture, but
here's my better half after his procedure on Tuesday.
We are happy to say that it was a great experience,
and we were treated top-notch by the nurses and doctor.
Having said all that.. . Keith attended a meeting about
home dialysis on Wednesday evening, and
he is considering doing this. He will have to
have a catheter surgically implanted in his
abdomen, and have a lot of training... but it's something he wants to explore.
Don't look now, but the girls are all starting to come
outside in the beautiful weather.
I'm so glad for them, and tonight, I found Bluey, the big
blue rooster, outside for the first time.
That's the south garden bed at the old house... the one from
which I pulled weeds for hours one day last fall.
I see I didn't get all the grass, so tomorrow, I'm going to start digging.
I don't want to go through another summer of weeds.
The dogs have absolutely gloried in the good weather.
And though we did have fog one morning... the weather has, in the main, been balmy.
Too balmy... it has gotten to nearly 80 and we need rain badly.
There were hawks everywhere.
Run, Jes, Run!
Ahhhh they look so innocent.
They descended on us, finally.
I know they have to eat, but they drive off other birds.
It wasn't just starlings, there were red-winged blackbirds in there, too.
Oddly enough... in the month that I have been feeding at the old house again, I am not seeing any mourning doves, which used to visit all the time.
Beautiful, but odd, clouds last night.
I had lunch with Paiton and Jax today, since they are on
spring break. I was going to babysit them, but their dad,
my son Jim, is getting ready to start a new job and is
off all next week. We took them to McDonald's at their request, so they
could play in the playroom. Screams. For an hour.
It was fun, but loud.
This afternoon, same bird you see in the tree above.
And this happened here yesterday... we had two garden beds dug
by a local man who puts in gardens for people.
These are our first in-ground beds at the new house... and I
can't wait to start building them up... there is one on the inside of the
fence, and one on the outside! It's a start!
