Where I LIVE

Birds and Squirrels get fed.  .  . Fountain in background.
 Minx enjoying the heater (above).
 Finally the courtyard ditches covered. . .
Watch your step.. .MUD 
and no concrete in part of sidewalks everywhere.
They did finally get the stacks of leaves carried off.

Happy Thanksgiving

WHERE I LIVE . . . .                                   Another Danger. . . .

50-60 mile an hour winds . . .
 . . .with gusts to 70s will leave huge
limbs/logs across the yard and sidewalks. . .
This is NOT the first time this has happened.

There will be a lot of horrendous rain and storms through  Thurs and Friday into early Saturday.

Weather may be a hazard everywhere. . .be careful and be SAFE!

To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens.

Where I live. . .

They came and took care of the dirt, but it will rain and turn to slick mud. . .there are pieces of concrete still missing (mud will leak out) and sidewalk not cleaned up.

 The dirt is everywhere and can wash onto the 
sidewalk. . .plus concrete missing.
 My sidewalk is missing concrete. . .mud will wash
into the drain and possibly stop it up.
 This is the entrance to the Wash house. . .more
concrete missing and will be muddy area.
 Birds are eating on the pillar and the
Fountain is Icing up. . .it does every winter.
The best is yet to come. Be patient.
I believe 40 days and 40 nights and on and on is pushing patience.

Work Completed Nov. 9 but not cleaned up . . . 5 days later. . .


Birds eating and Fountain ICED
Children played here over weekend 
in the construction site.
Ditch, Concrete and Orange curtain
Only way I can get to my mail and/or
do my wash. . .impossible with wash because 
I would have a basket in my arms and cannot 
traverse ditch, mud and concrete with each step.
I have no idea when this will be cleaned up. 
Friday the 9th the work was completed.
You can’t always control who walks into your life, but you can control which window you throw them out of. . .

40 days and 40 nights

Lake front property (night time)

No hot water or Heat

40 days and 40 nights. . . .seems like I've heard that before. . . .How did that turn out?

RAINBOW    Let us hope so.

I fed the birds on my Patio
 . . and the Squirrels.  Pretty place.
 Now it's not so pretty. . . .
Amazing how one place can go so far down so fast. . . . totally.

Renting is not the way to live EVER!  My experiences.

When life gives you crumbs, feed the birds.

ONGOING project . . . .


Heat back on after 33 days. . . . .  Still no hot water. . .

Digging . . . .

Flags were taken up by the 'kids' and had to be reset by workers TWICE!!! Which stopped the work progress several times. . . .NO ADULTS WATCH THEIR KIDS.


This sets the whole project back days and weeks.
