Things go better with sunshine!

It’s been another one of those weeks. Deck project got postponed and it’s not about the weather. Contractor is finishing a job he started last fall but all the materials weren’t available. Everything is in now and that work is ahead of our project so the deck is next (hopefully).

The beloved husband’s adult kids live across the country. Today one of them is flying in to rent a truck and transport paintings, family heirlooms and furniture that doesn’t fit here. Flying in, loading truck and taking off on Friday. It’s choreographed with not much leeway for plan changes. We’ve had a clink in the plan which required thinking at 7 a.m. BS (before Starbucks). Looks like it will all work out but there were some scary moments.

With some upcoming landscaping, our underground utility locations were marked. Holly cow! They planted a tree on top of the underground electric cable. We will never be able to grind out those roots (that wasn’t on the work list but it’s good to know). The good news is that the new tree and flower bed can be placed exactly as planned.

We’ve had a sunny, warm week. It’s amazing how good sunshine makes you feel. Even the glitches are less glitchy. It’s easier to roll with the punches. Sunshine makes you glad to be alive. Queue in John Denver’s “Sunshine on my Shoulders!”

  1. I can handle life so much better with sunshine. It’s almost embarrassing to note how true this is! I am glad you’ve had some wonderful weather, and let’s hope the deck is done and you can enjoy some outdoor time!

  2. Oh, dear. Those underground cables sound complicated for landscaping. I hope that doesn’t turn into an adventure for you someday. One day and overnight to arrive, rent truck, pack it all, sleep, and then take off for a cross-country trip, huh? I hope there’s a least a dinner scheduled with you guys! 🙂 – Marty

    • We picked up the truck this morning and it’s packed and ready to go early tomorrow morning. The house heaved a sigh of relief at the sight of stuff exiting (for a change). We had dinner last night and again tonight. It may be short but it was a good visit.

  3. It is really nice to see the sun again! We’ve been living in a Winnie the Pooh movie where the rain rain rain comes down down down. I figure I am well watered and should enjoy the blue skies.

    • I’d love to send you some. Our winter was drier than usual but not drought stage. Getting 3 inches of rain in two days is not really a good thing. Most runs off. Not complaining though. Our dry period is July through early September.

  4. It’s good to know y’all are still nimble and can change course quickly. I thought people got set in their ways when they got old. I’ve done more adjusting and maneuvering in the last eight years than I ever did before. Maybe moving keeps you going.
