It’s been raining for three days without stopping. My wife is in depression, and she is standing and looking through the window. If the rain doesn’t stop tomorrow, I’ll have to let her in.
We are up and going bright and early as we prepare for Colleen’s arrival around 2:00 PM. I had doctor’s appointments back over in Los Alamitos, so I headed out at 8:30 AM for a 9:30 AM appointment. I went to three doctors and then stopped by to visit Miss Vicky.
While at the doctor’s, I got a text and an alarm from my security system; someone was at the front door! The gazebo behind the pool is 180 feet away from the front door; we have a large lot! The security screen is not installed.
At Vicky’s, I took a couple of shots of the murals, but they need to be taken at 3:00 PM, so the shadows do not cross the pictures, and the sun will be in the proper location. The one below is for DEL as he loved hunting g in the mountains.
This mural brought tears to my eyes as I remembered Vicky asking what kind of flowers Sue, Mary, and I liked the most. Each of these flowers represents a friend of family living, and someone passed. Vicky explained them all to me, but I did not hear it because of the three in the center.
I know ow favorites of the Zaitz are there along with the Roberts, Vicky and Del, and many other friends and family. WOW!
We walked and talked for a while before I high-tailed it home to see our new door. I did tell Vicky that if the CEO of IKEA was elected Prime Minister in Sweden, he should have his cabinet together by the end of the weekend.
Colleen arrived about 2:30 PM with Jose, our driver. We talked for a while, and then I took a short nap while the girls continued talking. Mary and I made a beef pot pie, and that was for dinner.
I was thinking about apple pie but I read the recipe. Following a recipe, it says I need: apples, five cubed. 125 sounds like a lot of apples for a pie.
We sat and talked from 3:30-8:00 PM when Colleen’s eyes went half-mast; she headed to bed, and we were not too far behind her.
I was there, as the selfie proves! Notice our two Arab neighbors are still hanging around!
Tomorrow is Girls Night Out and a lot of errands. As I crawled towards the bed, I saw an ad for burial plots and thought this was the last thing I needed.
