It's been a while, hasn't it?
Don't ask me what happened to the new WIFI setup that was to be installed at the RV prk across the street. It was supposed to happen last Thursday, and the DirectTV man was there, installing equipment, all afternoon. That's all I can say. Nobody seems to know why we have no internet conection as of yet. I'm wondering if the service technician only comes out to this little town on Thursdays, and maybe we'll still have WIFI sometime in the future. In the meantime, the library is open three days a week, so that will have to suffice.
There is no way I'm going to be able to catch up with all your blogs, but I'll try to get the most recent ones read. I want to thank my daughter for keeping you posted on what's happening here, and for publishing your comments for me, and for calling me each day to read them all to me. I'm sorry I'm probably not going to have time to respond to them, but I'm sure you'll understand that an hour or two at the library each week just isn't going to cut it! Today's trip is being eaten up by updates to my internet security program and Windows Defender, as well as downloading 184 email messages, 412 Usenet posts!
Nothing much has happened since I last blogged. I got most of the area around the house cleaned up, the palm tree has had its dead fronds removed, and the little garden boxes have been planted. I had Mr. Granny remove the 2"x2" corner posts from one of the boxes and reinstall them a bit straighter, and in doing so he backed into that cactus that is right there next to the garden. I spent a good hour plucking cactus stickers from the back of his leg. Right after that happened, I backed into it! After another hour of tape and tweezers, we got wise....that cactus has been removed and has a new home out in the desert!
I've planted mixed lettuces in one bed for a cut and come again salad garden. In the other bed are spinach and radishes. The planter in the center has some chard that will be moved to a larger pot when I get some potting soil. That is, if any of the seeds grow! They should, as the weather has been great. We've had low to mid eighties during the day, and night temperatures ranging from 67F the first night we got here down to 47F last night.
I just tried to upload a photo of the newly cleaned up and seeded garden beds, and wouldn't you know....I haven't taken them off my camera yet! I'll have to come back with pictures tomorrow or Thursday. In the meantime, I'm alive and well, the dogs, the rabbit and Mr. Granny are all adapting just fine.
Miss you all!
