July 6, 2009 Sunny fluffy clouds Monday

Greeting fair readers wherever you are.

Last night I took pictures of the moon from the deck. Some one has set the camera for flash - I'll have to get the book out to find out how to set it for time and nighttime pictures ;-) But I stil don't know how to get the pictures off the camera into the computer - duh... so, this photo will have to do.

Good news: Daddy went out on the deck today and I cut some of his hair. I wouldn't call it a hair cut, just a trim. But it was warm and sunny (we slathered on the sun screen and sat in the shade - or we would not have been able to stay our for two hours!) :) We drank lemonade. We made jokes. I trimmed his fingernails and we squinted at the sun. Got lots of vitamin D today.

Good news 2: Jeff, our grass cutter, and his family came by today and took care of the acres of grass and clover that cover the estate. He's been busy putting in a new kitchen for a retired nurse, but he'll be back to help us [with the boardwalk, gates and maybe a deck out back???? ]

Note to self -- (I have to figure if we have the money for such an extravagant project before I set to doing anything about it. I would also like to paint inside and CLEAN... help does not seem to be at hand however. When I get my youthful strength and wisdom back - oh, I know that's a faint hope , I can do it my self!)

He said he would do the job of weatherizing the deck, but we don't need to do it this year. He will power wash it and prepare it for the stain and all when we decide to do it - maybe in the spring - we'll need about a week of good weather...

Good news 3: Joy called. She and Jean are coming to visit me on Friday - the 10th - for lunch their treat ;-)

Health nurses will visit tomorrow to check the coumadin levels of Grandma and Daddy. The PT lady's last day is tomorrow. Unless I can figure out how to keep her coming...


  1. For a moment I thought it was the deck of a ship but the photo showed otherwise.

    (insert the camera memory card into the slot at the side of your computer, and the pictures should come out automically)

  2. That's a stunning picture. What camera are you using?

  3. If you watch my kid, I'll help you
    paint some week day. Let me know.

    I can even get you good ECO (non-stinky, almost healthy) paint here at Home Depot. I have a gallon of green left. That is, if you have a room small enough for only one gallon.
