Brooks and Millie. Lora all dressed up for 50’s day at kindergarten.
Taking a break that is! We have more “winter” like weather in the forecast, rain and highs in the low 50’s. Monday was sunny and 75 degrees so off we went in the CanAm up into the Dragoon Mountains. Dan and Clint joined us–Louanne had more pressing girly things to do–manicure/pedicure! It was a fantastic day, perfect temperature and the fall colors were still in evidence.
That’s Rockfellow Dome peaking up from the west side instead of our view from the east side of the Dragoons. Can you spot the rock climber? Can you see the sheep’s head?
Tuesday I cooked some, did the laundry, rested my knee and helped the Cowboy put up ONE sheet of drywall. It’s a good thing we only had ONE of those to hang or we would be divorced! 😲 The drywall lift has been a marriage saver!😋 There was no way to get the lift into the shower so we had to lift the sheet over our head, make it fit around a very specific cut-out and screw the sheet to the studs. It was hard, way hard!! About killed both of us!! As I said, I’m glad there was only one of those!!
The Cowboy has been experimenting with a rough texture, made to look like plaster drywall finishing technique–he’s got it down–our house is going to look so good!
Tuesday evening about 5pm it started to rain and rained off and on all night long. Wednesday morning there was over one inch of rain in the gauge. That’s always a good thing in the desert. And, it may rain more tonight and tomorrow. That’s Rockfellow Dome to the left of center taken from our side of the mountains.
These are some sunset photos I took a few days ago–
Lots of people have told us we can’t grow citrus trees in this part of southeastern Arizona. Well, we have two trees and ONE piece of citrus–not sure if it’s a lemon or a lime because I can’t remember which tree is which.
