A Sunday well lived.....

6:16 am - Monday - May 29th - LPG&RVR - 46° F, humidity 73%, wind 0 mph out of the west by northwest......cloudy today with a forecast high of 73° F, and rain this afternoon.  On this date in 2021 TLE and I were in Spokane, WA for a wedding....we visited the grave of my mother, Virginia Gale Hockwald for the first time since her death a year prior (think Wuhan Flu) I am with my two brothers......↴

TLE and I finally 'slept in' until after 7:30 am Sunday.  That was nice!  I was so involved in how nice it was to 'sleep in' that I walked out to the salon, poured a cup of coffee, and sat down in my recliner, never even thinking about writing my daily blog!  Which goes to explain why it was not posted until 12:10 pm, when I did finally remember.  Getting old is not for the faint of heart.

Office Kathy was still under the weather, but another LPG&RVR worker, Lynn, offered to open the office and take care of business so TLE would have at least one day off work before beginning her next 4 day work week.  I spent time in the garage (trailer) repairing the ball washer for our golf car, which TLE nearly scraped off the side of the golf cart when she got too close to a dumpster whilst dumping a bag of trash a while back.  I used some two part JB Weld to put her back together, then remounted it on Club Car Villager #20.

I did a little weeding in our yard, swept a weeks worth of leaves off the 'lido deck', 'lower deck' and 'viewing deck' turf, and then took another MTB ride around the perimeter of the golf course.....

....just as the day before, I got sprinkled upon about half way around the course.  I was getting a little overheated as I was climbing one of the hills near hole #5, so the rain was a welcome interruption in my 25 minute ride.

Our grass was mowed while we were in Redding/Klamath Falls, and it is looking almost dandelion free after just a few weeks......

.....the 'lido' and 'viewing' decks are looking great, and that tilting umbrella on the 'viewing deck' does a great job of keeping the sun out of our eyes when we sit to watch the sun slide to the western horizon, which we did shortly after I took this picture.....

.....we sat on the 'viewing deck' until after 6 pm, then TLE got out those filet mignons she bought at Fred Meyer for me to grill on the Sea-B-Que, and we had another delightful 'lower deck' alfresco dinner to close out Sunday's festivities.  We didn't head inside until after 7 pm.....a nice, relaxing day!

Thanks for stopping by!
