One of these days is it possible we might not haul as much stuff between Montana and Arizona?? Clothes and some food are necessary but the rest of it–I’m not sure! I bring quilting projects, the Cowboy brings tools which aren’t duplicated, we brought furniture from Nat’s house, and the list goes on! Tuesday we both spent the day unpacking. I did make a run to the Dollar Store and the Produce Wagon for routine supplies–it’s amazing how much can be purchased in this community.
Emmi and I have been taking our daily hikes
Wednesday the Cowboy tied into a project–the floor joists in the hall between the two houses. These two dwellings were not connected when we purchased them even though the structures were only four feet apart. When we installed the new roofs, we connected the two buildings. This left a hallway from the backdoor of the guest house portion to the back door of the main house but no flooring–there was a large step at each end and we walked on gravel. The new floor will make things much nicer and safer.
I spent Wednesday cleaning–lots of spider webs form when you are gone over the summer. I also worked in the yard–the tumbleweeds are taking over after all the good rain we had during the summer monsoon season. Tumbleweeds have millions of seeds on each plant so it’s no wonder the plants are flourishing! This time of year a shovel is the method of choice unfortunately!
Today the Cowboy worked on the flooring once again and I waged war on more tumbleweeds. I’m not sure I’m up to shoveling three acres of weeds!
Wednesday night’s sunset was gorgeous–the first photo is before the color really started showing.
This afternoon I hung some photos and my “Gobble, Gobble” quilt. I can’t believe Thanksgiving is only a week away!
Many people I know have plantar fasciitis–my sister, my friends Jane and Bonnie. Now I’m thinking I have it in my left heel–it hurts! I’ve ordered some gel inserts which come with a money back guarantee and I’m looking for a therapeutic massage therapist. A Montana friend told me our massage therapist had healed her plantar fasciitis–well, I’m a long way from Gayle but hopefully I can find someone in Arizona. Several years ago I was having a terrible time with my right shoulder and was at the point where I was sure surgery was in my future. Gayle, a fantastic massage therapist cured my shoulder pain and I have all my range of motion.
We had the most beautiful day today–sunny, low 60’s and no wind–perfect!
