I Got Out

This morning the wind was gone and I felt really good. I guess the new Zicam worked. 

Kathy, picked me up around 10 and we went to a craft show with her granddaughter who is visiting for a week. It was really nice to be in the sun. 

As we walked around I was looking at the stained glass things and saw this pretty heart with an earring hanging in the middle. I was showing it to Kathy and the man came and said how much does it say it costs. I looked at the tag and it said Free. I looked it over to see what could be wrong and there was nothing. He told me every show he does he marks 1 item free. Things like this don't happen to me. I was so happy. I was walking around another table and spotted this little Rosary it was so tiny and I thought I would like to put it on Arianna's crib. I walked away but kept thinking about it so went back and bought it. Hope to get over to their house tomorrow to see her.

Tomorrow morning if the Apache hasn't been sold I will go take a look and see if I can crank it up and put the walls up, check the tires and the stability of the floor, check for leaks and other important stuff.

I also put in an application for camp host at to campgrounds up north.

Will post results tomorrow.

I came down with something and still not sure what. But staying away from the new baby which isn't easy. 

The wind has been blowing for 2 days now and that sure isn't helping. Using Zicam for colds the one for allergies didn't seem to do much. This one clears out enough to be able to breath so we will see how it goes by tomorrow. Added more vitamin c to the mix also.

The painting is on hold until Tue. and we are hoping for NO rain.

This is the old color and I didn't realize how faded it was, it is a pale green with a darker trim. Over the car port it is grey for some reason I think when they dropped the awning they flipped the board to the wrong side. Not my truck in there

I am loving this new color the window trim has not yet been painted as he ran out to trim paint I have bought more. Makes the place look totally different
Going to look at an Apache pop up trailer either tomorrow or Monday. It has hard sides not canvas or pull outs. Looking for someone to go with me. Ryan if your out there and still in the Tucson area I sent you an e-mail but not sure it went.

Came Down With Something

I was going to go see the baby today but last night I started feeling crappy and today wasn't any better. Don't know if it is really bad allergies or a head cold. So no visiting for me. 

Have to pick up another gl of trim paint tomorrow. The wood was just sucking it up and this house has lots of trim. tomorrow he will paint the front body of the house. Then we are going to get more rain over the weekend. Hope it clears up by Monday.

Smiley getting to meet his little sister and daddy holding her. Little guy kept telling everyone it was his baby. Dad has done most of the feeding and diaper changing when he is there. Anthony is such a great dad. Oh and of course that's the mom.

New Great Granddaughter

My new great granddaughter Arianna arrived today. She weights 6.16 and is 19 in. But I can't get the pictures to load over into my picture files. Hate when that happens. Of course she is beautiful. May have to wait for them to come home in order to take pictures.

Painter got most of the trim painted today after he finished up the rest of the repairs. We decided to try drilling a hole in at the end of the rain gutter to divert the water to a drain pipe. Sure hope that works as lots of rain is heading this week by Sat. night.

Oh just tried to past and it worked . 

So glad this will work for future pics. Her daddy is beaming and already sending out warnings to stay away from his daughter lol

Rained Buckets

I got up at 5:30 jumped in the shower, got Fred out and sat to enjoy my coffee. 6:30 it started raining like crazy. I got up that early for nothing. I did move the truck out and put the trash to the curb  between down pours. The painter showed up to let me know he wouldn't be doing any work today. I kind of figured that out. And did it get cold.
Also the shed leaked again so he will take it apart again to see maybe if the gutter has been twisted to lean into the shed instead of away.

Lucy sent me a text asking if I wanted to go do something today as she was heading into town. Why not. Lucy also brought me a electric knife so I can cut the foam mattress for the camper. I'll get that done maybe tomorrow.

Calling for some cold weather in the morning but supposed to warm up to the low 70's in the afternoon. 

It's Rodeo week here and you sure can tell. Everyone is wearing boots, cowboy an cowgirl hats and western shirts and other western attire. Thur. is parade day but it may rain again. Not like I would go been there done that years ago.

Work In Progress

The painter showed up right on time this morning. He started with the gutters and that took half the morning. The prickly pair cactus had really taken hold in there. He said the gutter was almost filled with gunk to the top no wonder it was leaking into the shed. He had to remove some of the wood trim to get to the gutter. But all is replaced and other trim  pieces have been replaced do to dry rot. got lots of caulking done and luckily I had a couple tubes in the shed as he used all we bought the other day. Of course we are expecting rain tomorrow. At least we will know if the rain doesn't leak into the shed again.

I pulled lots of stuff off the porch this morning and had to stop and rest before I finished. A few pieces will have to stay as they are to heavy to bring down the steps but he can move them out of his way as he goes.

Wind Showed Up

Last night I awoke to the sound of light rain on the awning. And then wind. There is nothing worse than packing up a wet camp so I guess it all worked out for the best.

I was picked up by my Granddaughter and her other half Alonzo and my great grandson Cello for a dinner date. It was so good to spend time with them. They also brought me a great bottle of Risata Moscato d'Asti wine. 

Last week when Tracy and I went to the zoo I forgot I took this picture on the way home. I have been trying to get this shot for a very long time. Since I wasn't driving I was able to take it when we came to the red light
