Another beautiful day in the California Foothills. I told someone, who commented, that the storm wouldn't last long because we only allow one day storms here and I was right. Yesterday the temperature rose into the 80's, the sun shone all day and we all put our shorts back on. That's how it is here.
Ivy Lady's bangs were obscuring her view of the canyon and surrounding hills so I gave her a haircut. Her hair was soaked and hanging limp around her face. A lady just can't be having a bad hair day when the sun is shining. She looks much more presentable now.
As usual, Carl was were he SHOULDN'T be. This time it was in my garden. What am I to do? He pulled every leaf (that the storm blew in) out of the small birdbath and was growling at the other dog in the water. Do we have a never ending source of entertainment with this little guy? You betcha!! Never a dull moment with a puppy.
Today we replaced the covers over the boat and the tent trailer. They were ripped to shreds in the wind storm. The covers were already in bad shape so we had ordered replacements recently. Now it looks great and, hopefully, they will be last for a couple of years until we can build a barn. Oh ..., a barn..., and..., and a bigger living room.., more closet space.., a free standing wood stove..., more fencing..., an automatic gate at our entrance.., more terracing..., a donkey..., a covered deck.., and....., oh my gosh,
I'm sorry. I got a little carried away. Must have been a weak moment. I'll just go have a cookie or two. That will make me feel better.
"CARL..., get out of the garden!!!"
