Another Day OF Absolute Rest!

It’s Monday, so here you are, music I grew up with and love!

We both canceled our gym appointment and took it easy as we’d been sick.  We’re recovering, but it takes time at our age.  Mary was feeling better today, and my bronchitis seems to be mellowing out.

Due to our being sick, we finished five books yesterday. And believe me, that’s a lot of coloring.

We called our neighbor Jeff to tell him we had been sick, which was why we had not visited.

We walked the garden, and lo and behold, the rabbits had found it.  I went to Amazon and loaded up on supplies, including a cage, some netting, and 2,000 feet of high-voltage wire and insulators, complete with a 5,000-volt electric fence power source.  In a few days, we will have no more rabbit issues; however, we will have rabbit stew for dinner!

Damned rabbits have been busy!

The grape vines are going wild. Now that their dormancy has ended, they are rapidly growing. We discovered some young plants that will produce table grapes for us this summer, growing inches daily. We found some babies that will end up table grapes for us this summer. We have six different kinds of grapes, from Concord to Thompson Seedless. We have no “wine grapes” as they require much more heat than in Orange.

Baby grapes are not forming.

We had cereal for breakfast, as neither of us felt good enough for our average full-fledged breakfast.  We watched a lot of TV, but Mary, like me, couldn’t sit still, so she decorated for Easter.  I got all the decorations out on Saturday, and Mary placed them today!

She is wearing her bunny ears and hiding from the camera!

We decorated for Easter.

Late in the afternoon, we had another homemade “Mary Pastrami Sandwich”; it was like dying and going to heaven.  I have no idea what she does, but those sandwiches are AMAZING.  Perhaps it is that touch of love?

I quickly took a shower before dinner.  When I returned, Mary had dinner ready and was knitting.  I surprised her with a rose!

I interrupted Mary’s phone call after my shower!

The dinner was fantastic, and we even enjoyed a delicious dessert.  We also had a small glass of wine while watching TV.

While watching TV, I set up the laptop to update our vacation page while on vacation!  Now, I can edit at sea and post to the website as we progress through the journey.

However, we ran out of napkins, and Mary asked me to fetch some.  When I returned, she gave me a quick lesson on dinner etiquette.

Dinner behavior is being reinforced!

We watched TV until almost 11:00 pm and finally crashed.  Scout got tired and went to bed early, and I did NOT wake him up to tinkle, so I will be receiving a 3:00 am visitor.

About Paul
