Have you voted? Facebook wants to know. We voted before leaving Montana and my dear great niece voted in Arkansas for the first time–
I love these three and the other one that isn’t of voting age although she had a milestone birthday this week–sweet sixteen.
Thursday the Cowboy made a hole in the house–on purpose. All the lines from the three mini-split heating and air conditioning units have to run outside–thus the hole. When we had that little two day cold snap I reminded the Cowboy that it would be nice to have heat over in the main house.
Thursday and Friday we set the last two porch roof steel posts into cement. I don’t do very much except make sure the cement in going into the form when the Cowboy releases the handle on the mixer. He had placed a board just below the mixer that let the cement drop onto the board then flow into the form–I encouraged it with a shovel–not my favorite tool!😝Friday he found out the metal roofing is probably a month or more out on delivery. Not good news.
Friday we traveled to Sierra Vista for building supplies and groceries. I brought so much food with us but we needed produce–we eat a lot of salads, fruit of all kinds and I use a lot of onions. We are still huge fans of Walmart pickup. For lunch we had our usual–Culvers–they have outdoor dining and the pooch was tagging along on this trip.
Saturday the Cowboy made ready the concrete forms for the compressor base which powers the mini split heating and air conditioning units. When we bought groceries on Friday one of our Walmart substitutions was six 12oz boxes of fresh raspberries in place of the frozen ones I had ordered. We would not eat that many fresh raspberries before the fruit spoiled. So, I washed, let mostly dry and froze the fruit–
In the evening we were dinner guests at Dan and Louanne’s. The dinner was amazing and it was so good to spend time with them. They are mask wearers, social distancers and are careful. And it was so good to have someone else do the cooking! Two times the doorbell rang with trick or treaters. The second time it was a little girl and when Dan asked her if there was anybody else with her she said, “yes, my little brother but he’s not behaving and had to stay in the car.” Funny!
Sunday the Cowboy laid and cut tile. I painted doors and worked at trying to find gopher holes–we are inundated with holes in our yard this year. The ground is so hard with no moisture in months I’m thinking even the gophers are having trouble digging.
