Now we wait for the cement to cure.

DH is away working on a project installation and was living vicariously through pics and videos I sent him. He wasn’t left out though. He received a text invoice for the first of three payments two hours after the crew left.

I know it’s weird, but they are okay when enlarged. CD’s photo function is a mystery at times.

In the original post they aren't when I click on them. That's why I wondered when they were okay on mine.

BJW50 -- Thank you for posting the beautiful snow geese

MMob -- So glad you and feeling healthy again and and are enjoying your wonderful trip.

Jean -- Your pool is taking shape! What fun to look forward to, thank you for sharing!

It has been a quiet but very busy week here in the Phx area. We have been very busy outside enjoying the beautiful weather. We attended a folk music festival, are taking lot of walks, church events, and working in our yard. We don't spend a lot of money, but we have a nice life down here. We are trying to "make hay while the sun shines", so to speak, since my husband's health will deteriorate with his disease.

Sending thoughts & prayers for any of you on the East coast who may have been impacted by this last terrible storm.

Trying to tough it out here. No heat, no electric, horrible cell service, limited data access via internet. Electric is expected to be accessible March 7th, 12:00 a. m. IOW, the company has no clue. 72 hrs +, thus far. That said, could be worse. I’m not wading through icy water. Starbucks up and running within one day. Yay! Free heat and wifi...and affordable mocha frappacinos.

Tomorrow is another day. !

ETA: Typed the above, drove home, and discovered my electric is back on! (Knock on wood). Maybe I should have whined sooner. Whoo hoo! Looking forward to clean body, clean clothes, clean dishes and emptying the fridge and freezer. Well, maybe not the latter.
