We slept well last night and were ready to embrace this Monday!!!
I called Oncor Power Company before I even got out of bed this morning to report the tree section hanging on our power line. The guy who came out was super nice! He said the line from the pole to the house was our responsibility......but since he was HERE! He helped Louis Dean deal with it and even took down the heavy branch - pointed on the end - that was poised to fall straight down!
Praise God for this kind man who helped us!
Louis Dean said we are going to need a BIGGER chain saw and went off to buy one!
This man of mine is golden! He also made a Sam's run to stock up on supplies.
The last batch of biscuits he made was with margarine! We were out of butter, olive oil AND shortening!!!!
He made a lot of progress!
The tree section is off the gazebo and cut into lengths to use as firewood next fall!
It's still a mess and will not be cleaned up anytime soon - but he IS making progress!
Louis Dean is also known as Mr. McGregor!!
He does NOT like squirrels!!!
Instead he caught a POSSUM!!
We love possums! They eat a ton of insects and since we spend so much time outside - we really appreciate them!
I didn't realize they had such teeth!!!
While Louis Dean was doing his errands, I was doing what I do best - making something pretty!!
I decided that since we don't have our gazebo, I would clean up the decks and patio so we can still have an outdoor living space!
Mother enjoyed sitting in the sunshine and watching me work.
I have to say it felt really good to be outside today!
It was beautiful with the sun warm on my skin and a light breeze blowing through every now and then.
I had a late lunch ready when Louis Dean got home!
Of course, we ate outside!
This was a tired, tired man!
I think Mother had a good day. I gave her an umbrella to use as a cane. There's no way to use a walker in my house! Louis Dean had a real cane he has loaned her while she is here and that will come in handy.
When life gets messy - as it is now - I tend to try to do some pretty things.
Like serving lunch on the nice soup and sandwich set Deanie gave me last year.
After lunch - which was LATE - we ate about 3:30 - I did a little more work while Mother went in to take a nap. Then I drank a nice glass of wine and went to bed myself!
When I got up, I finished cleaning up the patio and decks!
Louis Dean started a fire for us and we have enjoyed sitting outside this evening!
He was pretty impressed that I had cleaned it all up and made it look nice!
I should have taken before pics!!
So this is my blogging spot tonight!
The fire is burning, the ponds are bubbling and we are sitting together.
All is right in my world!
