Work + Watermelon = Good Day

Lots got done today. The screens are almost all repaired or replaced. The holes for the clothes line posts are dug and ready for concrete tomorrow morning. The door to my bedroom is now up. More boxes are unpacked. The fan in the girls’ room has been replaced with one that has a working light. The phone line to the bedroom for computer dial-up use is now installed. The antennae connection is now in place in the living room. The front porch is clean and ready for sitting. The dog is settling in and the chickens are laying their eggs where they are supposed to.

This was a good day. On top of all of the good stuff, we got to eat watermelon again this evening and this time we bought a big melon. A melon that was still gone after the family ripped through it, but we all got to have almost as much as we wanted. The highlights of the evening included throwing rinds at each other, watching a beautiful display of clouds as the sun set and a good breeze. It doesn’t take too much to make us happy these days. Oh yeah, I didn’t have to go to City Hall or take a meeting or talk to someone that was unhappy with the Police Department for writing him a ticket while two teenagers and a minority did not get pulled over and they were going just as fast.

The chicken coop is supposed to get wheels installed tomorrow. I will let you know how that goes.

Just wanted you to know someone's reading! I'm glad things are coming together. Prayers for the house sale and deliverance from rattlesnakes are ascending. BTW, there's a new rattlesnake vaccine (for dogs, not snakes) you might want to consider!
