Beautiful Day

What a beautiful day we had even though a bit on the chilly side. It was so spring like with green all around, crab apples and lilacs blooming, a bright blue sky. I woke up to the sun shining and the birds singing and was just in a good mood all day.
Our shared activity for the day was a ride to Graniteville, Vermont. Mike had seen a pressure washer for sale on Craig's List and he was the lucky one to be first to call about it so we went to pick it up. It was certainly obvious today why Vermont is nicknamed the "Green Mountain State." This means, of course, that we will be starting a deck refinishing project soon.
Sometimes I really don't understand the attitude of some folks who are determine to stay in their "own home" no matter what. I mean, fine, as long as we can keep up with the maintenance requirements (physically and $$$wise), but I'm quite sure at some point the effort involved will totally lose its appeal. I expect at some point we'll just move in with one of our kids. (HA, HA! Just checking to see if they are reading my blog.)


  1. I so agree with you on people hunkering down in their homes and causing all kinds of misery and aggrivation for their children.

    I'm attached to nothing material. I can move with 30 minutes notice. (Well maybe not 30 minutes)

  2. Go right ahead and move on in with Kevin! =)


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
