Yard Work

Mike was waiting for me to get ready for the morning trip to the beach and he decided to get in a little bit of early morning yard work.
DSCN2307Here he is wielding his “shovel.”

He is moving some grapefruit around.

We spent a lovely morning on the beach.  I guess he deserved it after all this intense labor.  Almost all of our snowbird friends are back.   It feels kind of like home.  Good thing, because probably all my northern family and friends are not talking to me right now.

I have not been picking up shells on my trips to the beach, but I have been picking up driftwood.  I feel a project coming on.

The weather is droopy just north of us and I suppose we will get the foggy, rainy weather tomorrow.  Oh, well.  I do need to do some housework and I am sure I can find a project or two for Mike if we have to be indoors for a day.


  1. Gosh - your own grapefruit tree - that seems so exotic to me!

  2. I love a good grapefruit. I'm glad you are having fun.

  3. Such issues you have to face each day - to beach of not to beach. :)

  4. Everything that's fresh off the plant is so much better than . . . not! Did you feast on grapefruit?
    I do feel sorry for the two of you, though. Look at that grimace of pain in the second photo!

  5. Oh, the joy of having your own grapefruit!!! Have a sunny day, and don't forget to count your blessings that you are able to have such a wonderful place to winter!!!

  6. Wow a grapefruit tree. If I dig down through a foot of snow, I may be able to find a half dozen rotting walnuts in my yard that the squirrels missed.

    Glad you are enjoying your winter stay.

  7. Enjoy the warmth! Love grapefruits, and wouldn't it be great to just go outside and pull one off the tree!

  8. Don't you just love the smell of the grapefruit blossoms? Next door has a grapefruit, orange and lime and the smell -- especially in the evenings is wonderful!
