Wake Up Call

Sometimes in life we can get rather abrupt wake up calls. I was on the receiving end of one of those last week. Bob and I have been trying to make some positive life style changes but mine obviously should have been more diligent. When I woke up last Wednesday morning I certainly did not expect to be in the hospital by evening. Two "stents" later I can assure you that I am much more serious about my health issues and the food that goes into my mouth! I am also very grateful to my guardian angel for giving me another chance to get it right. Thank you!!

Well, we're back in the construction business again. As soon as fall is in the air Bob gets the urge to build something! A few years ago we remodeled our master bath as it was over 20 years old. We traded our cold tiled walk-in shower for a "cozy" fiberglass corner shower complete with glass enclosure. Would have been great if we could have figured out how to keep it from leaking around the base. Finally gave up, tore it out, and discovered that the base had a crack in it! All the caulking in Lowe's would never have remedied that problem. We're keeping the corner footprint and the shower enclosure but tiling the whole thing. It's a little difficult to visualize at the moment as the concrete rubble and big hole tend to get in the way! I'll keep posting as progress is made.

Better Gardening

Bob and I may not have the best luck growing good things to eat but our squirrels sure have the knack.

They have "planted" peanuts all around the yard.

I recently posted about having a soft heart and feeding the stray cats in the neighborhood. The down side to that is you can't be certain what else you are feeding!

We had to chain up the dish because "Rocky" and his/her family kept stealing them.
