BECAUSE OF OUR BAD WEATHER DAY PHEEBS BECAME THE MAIN FOCUS FOR MY CAMERA
Looking through a rain soaked East window seeing tall Pine trees bent over in the wind told me we were in for a looooooong inside day. A morning walk was out of the question. Checked my outdoor options & found only one slightly doable project. I had dumped about dozen wheelbarrow loads of pea stone in the carport about 8 years ago & there was still a smattering of that pea gravel left. All that along with about 6 inches of sandy clay dirt will be dug out of there in a few weeks anyway so figured I might as well save as much of the pea stone I could. Pea stone is always good for levelling or filling in small ruts in the driveway. With wheelbarrow & shovel in hand I went to work in the rain & wind protected carport. Cranked up my storage space stereo with a few western tapes. Country music always seems to go hand in hand with work projects. With the howling wind & rain beating on the steel roof above I wasn't worried about anyone being outside & bothered by my music. Cranked er up good:))
ASLEEP WITH HER FAVORITE DUCKY ON THE FLOOR
First moved everything to one side of the carport then shovelled up & wheel barrowed the stones outside. I then moved everything to the other side & repeated. Managed to haul me out half a dozen wheelbarrow loads of pea stone gravel generously mixed with copious amounts of good old dirt. Also managed to gain myself a sore back when I manually moved the utility trailer out of & back into the carport. I know better but I’m a slow learner I guess.
WHO SAID CANADA GEESE CAN’T WALK ON WATER
Mixed in with my carport project this morning were cushy recliner breaks in front of the television in a warm house. As the day wore on my work segments became shorter while my rest breaks became longer. I think my recliner has become my new best friend.

PHEEBS HAS CLUED IN TO OUR MICROWAVE & SITS PATIENTLY WAITING FOR IT TO BEEP & SEE IF ANY YUMMY SNACKS WILL COME FORTH FROM IT >>>
Been a long time since I saw a movie I liked. Maybe it has something to do with the types of movies I have picked to go & see these past few years. This afternoon with our ‘pay on demand’ program we decided on & picked a movie. Had seen it was nominated for 6 Academy awards. It was in Black & White but no matter, the quality was there. Couple swear words & one guy got socked but that was it. Now how refreshing was that from the usual blood & guts violence usually seen on screen nowadays. Name of this movie was NEBRASKA starring Bruce Dern. Liked this movie for it’s simplicity & realism. Two thumbs up for this one:))
ALWAYS SO NICE SEEING SIGNS OF SPRING POKING THROUGH EVERYWHERE
Amazingly enough we ended our day with warmer temperatures under sunny skies. Pheebs & I did a second walk after supper & that enabled her to scramble a few bunnies along the trail. She sure loves to run.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( The doctor's office was crowded as usual, but the doctor was moving at his usual snail's pace. After waiting two hours, an old man slowly stood up and started walking toward the door. "Where are you going?" the receptionist called out.
"Well," he said, "I figured I might as well go home and die a natural death."
I don't know what I'd do without my recliner. God bless the person who invented them!ReplyDelete
Strange weather today, but it did end up better than it started.ReplyDelete
That is one huge 5th wheel trailer.
Hope they can sell it.
Same type of weather here in Indiana. In fact the temps have dropped 20 degrees today and will be cool the rest of the week. I don't have a recliner but I never have a problem of taking an afternoon siesta if the urge is there. It's too bad you have the limit of days to be in the USA ... you could have stayed a little longer in the SW and stayed warm ... but then you would have missed out on Triple E.ReplyDelete
We saved John's Ekroness recliner from our sticks and bricks. Then took out one of the sofas and put the recliner along with my spinning wheel and sock machine in that area....we are both happy campers.ReplyDelete
those 'lazy man chairs' are the best thing ever invented!!!ReplyDelete
Pheebs looks very relaxed & happy! Glad she got to chase some bunnies--that makes for a really good day in Ari's world.ReplyDelete
After all that shoveling, you deserved a break. Thanks for the recommendation on the movie. It is on my list to see.ReplyDelete
You're not alone with the bad weather. We are having seven days of straight rain here in Ohio. Yuck!
Crappy weather here all week. and yes, I heard Nebraska is a great movie..I love Bruce Dern..Remember him in the movie "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane"?...starred Betty Davis too!..God, we're getting old!ReplyDelete
Glad to see you are keeping busy. Our weather is about the same here in Bloomington, IL.ReplyDelete
Be careful pushing that trailer. For 37 years I had a plush office job, but since retirement I often try to keep up with my kids on projects that involves physical labor.
For my efforts I went through a double hernia operation this morning.
So watch out with the strenuous jobs and stay healthy.
Al, a big thank you to you for mentioning the fact that we are selling our RV. You kinda put a fire under me to create a few specific posts about it soon.ReplyDelete
Meanwhile, I did create a blog page for it,
http://fwthrv.blogspot.com, just in case anyone is wondering where those G+ followings came from. Hope I didn't annoy anyone, I'm just trying some creative advertising. I'll delete that page as soon as it's sold.
Sure hoping that all our fellow bloggers and RVers will share the information. I just know that the perfect people are out there somewhere looking for this particular RV, they just don't know it yet.
Thanks again Al! :-)
