A very good day though in fact a good two days.
Yesterday my son came and cemented some of the bricks on a low wall that I had manged to dislodge-- didnt know I had that much strength Whistle
and he also went and got me some more plum slate to put over the membrane that I had put down to stop the weeds coming through on my small flower garden - once he put the slate down it has just transformed the area.
Then the man who helps me with the garden cleared the area beside my apple trees and once again we used the membrane to stop the weeds coming through and then he covered it with decorative bark - it looks just great and now it will be much easier for me to look after it myself.
Not content with all this I ordered 3 ton of small pebbles and it was deliverd today and once again the my helper cleared another part of the garden and also around my shed and he used the membrane again before putting the pebbles down -so almost everything in my back garden is looking fantastic and will be much easier for me to look after myself. I asked him to leave just one little patch that I wanted to do myself so I'm hoping it will be a bit cooler tomorrow. I've still 4 panels of wood fencing to be replaced but he's coming back to do that when the order comes in.
What has been achieved in 2 days is just marvellous.

I'm glad to hear that you are getting some improvements done to your property! Anne and I went to the coffee store and then to her favorite organic food store this afternoon. Later we met up with our son and his lovely wife at their house to retrieve my Father's Day gifts I had left there on Sunday. Then we went to dinner at a Jewish deli by their house. Oh and we had some gelato before we stopped at the coffee store!!!

Hi Gil glad to hear you had a nice day out with Anne and your family. It sounds you had a really good time.

I just wish I could make myself go out a bit more, but somehow I always manage to talk myself out of it and the silly thing is if I did do it I would probably enjoy it.

Hi Emmy,

Thanks! Saturday Anne & I went to one of my younger cousins house in New York to celebrate his youngest (daughter) graduating from high school! She is an athlete and has been on the Crew (rowing) team throughout the four years at high school. She has been accepted at a university in Washington State. Yes, the other side of the USA from New York! It is probably a 3,000 mile ride. She was offered a scholarship to be the coxswain (sp) on the men's team.

Today we were supposed to meet up with our daughter and family for dinner. We didn't go because there were severe thunderstorms in the area and the temp & humidity were both around 90!

I hope you get out soon.

and here is me worrying about my grandson just going down to England!!! Its so nice to hear of young ones making a success in all areas of their chosen studies. I reckon she'll do well in the future. I wish her every success.





The new wooden fence panels arrived at the store today and I'm getting the old ones replaced tomorrow so that will be another big job out of the way.
I'm very lucky I have good neighbours because the man who helps me put all my garden rubbish in his trailer and took it to the 'dump' where it gets recycled and he then went and collected the new wooden panels from the store. 4 panels 6ftx6ft plus the posts and I notice they are guaranteed for 10 years so that's good.
(I hope I'm included in that guarantee too Dancing Dancing Dancing
