I threw a denim shirt on the grass and lying on my back gazed up through our pecan tree!
After being ill for just about a full week - it felt GOOD to breathe fresh air and see blue skies!
I think a little 'sit in the sunshine' was just what I needed!
While I was lying in the sun.......LD was shoveling dirt!
He is working on his SIXTH wheel barrow full! The deck has been there about 25 years. That's a lot of 'new' dirt that has accumulated. He is using it to fill in the low spots in the front yard.
He will put a drain in next fall. It will be a big job as the roots of the pecan tree will pose a problem.
He is thinking about the situation and believes that the dirt he hauls out will allow the water to again flow AWAY from the house instead of INTO it!! It will take him all week to get this done but has proven to be a good exercise program! He says his heart is just about the only thing that DOESN'T hurt!
Last night we decided to pass on the blood and gore TV programs and watch an old movie......
This was hilarious!!!! Louis Dean and I both laughed so hard our sides hurt!
So in keeping with the dose of good medicine - we watched a half hour of cartoons this afternoon!
The old fashioned Tom and Jerry kind! Louis Dean said, "If people could just see us now! A couple of old folks sitting here watching cartoons!!" It makes me wonder though.......life can be so difficult I wonder why we choose to be 'entertained' by ever more violent TV shows! I am certain we will be watching the latest episodes of Hawaii Five 0, NCIS and other favorites soon. But for now I think we will sit back and enjoy some wholesome children's programs!
