Baby ducks and daffodils -- a surer sign of spring not to be found!
It seems like mostly what I did last week was lament (a fancy word for worry) over the things that were not getting done on my home in Yarnell. With the temperatures rising quicker than anticipated it is even more important for them to finish up so we can move up there for the summer. I had errands to do on Wednesday and saw by the indicator in our car it was 95F outside; and listening to the radio they forecast 98F for today. I was out again today but it was earlier in the day so it hadn't reached that burn-to-the-touch temp yet.
It really makes you want to think of some hobbies or activities to do inside the house where the A/C brings the temp down to whatever your body needs. However on Wed. I did get a call from the supervisor on our building. He wanted to tell me they are at work on stucco/drywall. Of course there are a couple of steps to be done before they actually apply the stucco or drywall, and that's what they are doing right now.
Can't remember the date this photo was taken, but I believe it was mid-March. Not too much has been accomplished since then. I told the supervisor I would be happy when he phoned me to say we could start painting in two days. He laughed and said he would be happy too, because then he could be bugging ME about when we would be done. Strange case of builder/owner participation, but they assured me it was a money-saver for us. I have my doubts, but at least during that week we will be in charge, and I know for sure our painter will be over there, on the job, every day!
Stopped by the furniture store today and saw my beautiful King-sized bed, night-stands and TV stand for the Master Bedroom. Can't wait until it is time to order my mattress. Think I will try one of those big thick foam things. You never have to flip them, most likely because they are so heavy you wouldn't be able to. Wonder how you go about getting sheets on them? lol
Weight shot up when I celebrated my "art finds" -- see another blog, and now after a week it's pretty much back to normal, so no worry there.
Things are blossoming, apple trees and grape vines all leafing out -- and I'm missing it all, stuck here in this oven they call Phoenix.
I'm trying to take it one day at a time though, so calm down, this too will pass!
