It was a rainy, humid day yesterday so Chuck decided to start on the kitchen ceiling. It seemed to take longer to wrestle the sheets in place to cover everything than it did to paint. The first coat took alot longer to put on then the second coat. There was some interesting language going on so I took myself outside and picked out 10,000 (slight exaggeration) maple keys out of the gardens.
Two hours and a brief rain shower later here is how the gardens looked.
The grass has turned so green with all the rain we have had in the last two weeks.
This little guy (girl?) showed up on the back deck to eat the maple keys. He seemed very tame but we shooshed him away as I know how destructive they can be. We had many of them on our property when we lived in Nova Scotia. They chewed right through a garbage can lid (plastic) and destroyed it.
Chuck's cousin Chaya is very ill at the moment and is in the hospital. It does not look very good for her so if I might ask for everyone to send good thoughts and prayers for her I would appreciate it. Thank you.
