Work And Play Is Really OK!

Fact: Anatidaephobia (ant-uh-tid-uh-fo-bee-uh)  is the fear of being watched by a duck.  A person with Anatidaephobia fears that a duck or a goose is watching him/her somewhere in the world.

We opened our eyes and looked toward the sky through the bedroom windows; the day was cold, just what we needed to work in the garden.

Scout was complaining about his color, but he had a positive attitude!

The Postman does not have a chance now!

Out of our jammies and into grubbies, we shot out the front door with Mary dead-heading the roses and me cleaning up the garage and working in the drip system.

Tom came over and started the patch job on the new electrical box.

The job will be done by Tuesday, and then I can call for the final inspection!

We asked Tom to investigate a nest on the patio, and he found eggs.  We were careful not to touch them, and we decided to keep them for a while.

We did not toss the nest but put it back carefully.

We worked from 8:00 AM until 12:30 PM in the garden.  Mary went harvesting and found the following goodies.  That is pretty amazing for NOT having a real garden; these came from some pots and our flower beds!

Our harvest!

We took a two-hour nap before getting ready to dance this evening with the Starlighters at the Fullerton Elks  Lodge.  The theme was Tuxedos and Tiaras.  It was indeed a bevy of beauties this evening.

We visited Bill and Holly, and it was pointed out that Bill and I have identical tuxedos; no, Holly and Mary had the same dresses on, with the color being the variable.

Lookalikes; Mary & Holly.

We danced until 10:30 PM and then headed home to crash.  We have another full day tomorrow.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
