I’m skeptical of anyone who tells me they do yoga every day. That’s a bit of a stretch.
We worked like dogs this morning, getting up at 6:30 AM and heading to Casa Valencia. Then I remembered something about being first. The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
We want to start moving Mary in a week, so we have to be done. I told Mary, “Worrying works! More than 90 percent of the things I worry about never happen.”
Frank came over the 11:00 AM and put up my new drapes into the TV Room and Formal Dining Room. They fit perfectly from the old place into the new place!
We walked the back yard as Mary likes to talk to the veggies, so they know to produce. So I joined her and had a pleasant conversation with baby squash and some string beans! The plants are doing fine.
As we walked near the pool equipment, I remembered to check the temperature, and it was 94 degrees in the pool! So, we better call Joe and Amy so they can enjoy an afternoon in the pool.
The house is rather large at 3,700 square feet, so we hired an assistant who wanders around the house cleaning the floors. It used to have a tail, but the tail got caught on a table leg and came off.
Joe, Amy, and the three kids (Charlier, Alex, and Apollo) were the first to come over. Poor old Scout was too pooped to pop afterward. Apollo and Scout ran around like crazy people.
The boys headed for the pool, and so did Apollo. He jumped in with the boys several times! It was funny to watch Scout say, “WHAT are you doing?”
Scout gave Apollo a little push and splat; there he went again. Too funny!
The boys just came back from playing two baseball games, and they were hungry, so Joe stopped and got some takeout food. We, well actually Mary, had made chili, cornbread and baked a pie to share; too bad, more for me!
Robin and Traci joined the fun, and Robin brought a wonderful snack plate, and of course, Mary rooted through everything to get to the strawberries.
Robin’s sister enjoyed all the visiting, and it was the second time they met Joe and Amy; the first was at the 4th of July celebration two years ago at Old Ranch.
After everyone left, we decided to sit in the oversized hot tub. The pool was 94 degrees, the moon was out, and it was dark. We saved wear and tear on our bathing attire, needless to say!
After an hour in hot water with a bottle of wine, we decided to stay the night at Casa Valencia this evening. Good choice; we crashed hard. So tomorrow, we put the finishing touches on my move, and we begin with Dr. Mary!
