Congrats Jon, on those fine boys going in good directions. We are beginning putting in the gardens. Our official planting date is next week. We are ahead on soy beans, potatoes, some onions. Peppers and tomatoes start going in next week. Then cucumbers, herb plants, chick peas after that. Carrots and beets. We are harvesting asparagus now.

I am still on a high from all I did this morning. Anyone need the house painted, CG, forget selling the house you are in now. I will build you a new one and you can rent this one out. No charge. Just let me know. One or two stories. With or without an attic or cellar. You can tell me what you want in your new house and it will be there.

Great pics of your handsome little guys, Jon! So glad to hear that little Jasper has outgrown his allergies. My grandson Tyler had a couple of food allergies as well when he was little, but not to the extent of your little Jasper. Now that Tyler is almost 9, he's outgrown them as well.

Your boys look like the sweetest, Jon! I bet they're both "all boy", though. They sure are growing up. Very happy that Jasper's allergies are all gone.

I can't remember if I told anyone here I bought a trailer. Well, what with one thing or the other, it will really be too much for me to work on by myself. So I've decided to sell it. The buyer gave me a down payment for it and will pay me the rest next week.

Naturally, one of my friends rounded up four of her relatives who said they would help me fix it up for free just two days later. But one of the people she talked to is her BIL and his house burned down not too long ago. I know he has his hands full, so I don't want to put this trailer thing on him. They absolutely refuse to accept payment.

Once the trailer is gone, the person who will be doing my water will be able to get up to my lot and start that (no, there still isn't water on my lot yet - URK!).

Once the water is on the lot, I have a tent I'll live in for the rest of the summer and then sometime this fall, I'll buy a storage shed to put my stuff in. After that, I'll move into my car like I had originally planned.

Meantime, it looks like I might be here in subsidized housing a little longer, something I'm not at all happy about.

So things are still sort of going to plan, just a lot slower than I had hoped for.

Long 12 hour day at work. I just got out of the shower & am feeling very relaxed.

RR, sorry to hear that you have to sell the trailer. That must be a disappointment. Hang in there.

Nah, I shouldn't have bought the trailer. If I saved a little more, I could have gotten something much better.

Too bad about the trailer not working out, rr, and too bad about all the problems with being stuck in your apartment.


It was a busy day around here, what with a doctor appointment for me (bad news for Himself: he's still stuck with a healthy me), other errands...and then I painted our wooden porch rocker while listening to a very exciting baseball game. Oh, and two loads of laundry, too - but truth be told, the machines do most of the work since I no longer have to beat our clothes on a rock in the stream behind our house.

I'm sitting here in stun mode. A very sweet friend went into the hospital a few days ago for heart surgery. She was in intensive care after the surgery and she died tonight. She was half a year younger than me.

Her poor husband must be devastated. They would have been married for 40 years this August. He was absolutely devoted to her. I really don't know how he is going to cope emotionally. I'm just glad that they have three, sensible, young, adult children here in Montreal. My heart is breaking for that family.
