Tuesday night as the Cowboy and Emmi were outside for last outs before retiring for the night, I heard what sounded like rain–it was–hard rain and the two of them were quick to come back inside! The wind was blowing, the temperatures dropped and it rained hard for just a bit. Perfect for settling the dust! Strange weather for late April in Arizona!
The Cowboy is feeling better at times and at other times not so good–he seems to have pinched a nerve or pulled a muscle in this neck/shoulder. It’s hard for him to “sit.” So, he’s been doing stuff which doesn’t require heavy lifting. Heat, aspirin, massage and rest are all helping him get back to his normal!
Tuesday we made a run to Benson–we needed a notary and a few groceries. The rest of the day was low key. Wednesday morning was the same but the Cowboy was restless after lunch and started a project–the ceiling in the hallway connecting the two houses. I helped at times but also worked on a little quilt project–Morley the Moose.
Wednesday morning after the storm.
Thursday our weather was beautiful–clear skies and very warm temperatures. Thursday morning we set another steel post for the porch roof on the main house. The Cowboy ran a water line and power to the evaporative cooler. Now we just need the sheet metal to form the ducting from cooler into the house. We’ve ordered the sheet metal and roofing steel from a guy in Fort Huachua who isn’t fulfilling his end of the bargain–so we will see!
Was so excited to see this bird while on our morning walk–I’m thinking it’s a Scott’s oriole?? Where is Judy when we need her??
