Greenhouse Expansion

 It has taken most of the summer and fall, but Al has pretty much finished the greenhouse where the strawberry patch used to be.  You'll just have to come see it for yourself, but here is a preview.   So much more light than the original little greenhouse, which lost a lot of space when it became the walk-in closet.  I like the closet and now Al likes the green space.  I'll let you know what he grows.  Stay tuned.

Still Not Much

 Just normal life here, every day more perfect than the one before - - -

Kill them with kindness and smother them with love. 

The artichokes looked like they were finished but they just keep growing. 

Anniversary date night at Costco.  This is what thirty-seven years comes to. 
The candle makes it so much more romantic, doncha think?
Ain't life grand?

Nothing in Particular

Since we last met - 

Al turned 80!  Eighty!  

His attitude is still the same. 
(In case it's hard to see - 
I'm not arguing.  I'm explaining why I'm right.)

What happens when Brussells Sprouts are left to mature.  Kind of like people. 
 Funky and distorted.

Same thing with a wasp nest after a few wind storms.
 That's a lot of work for just one seasson.

The Carpenter built me a new table.  Life in the Patch is good. 

Utah with Julie and Robert.

The Tabernacle Choir shared a rehearsal evening with us.  Magnificent!

I found a perfect knitting spot at an RV park in Hoquiam.  This was the day before Homer fell onto the truck.  Way back in 2010 people told us that it's not if it happens but when it happens.  Ouch! Now we know.

The greenhouse is being expanded.

You know.

2023 ornaments.

Yarn dyed to match the rose.  It wasn't intentional but didn't that just work out nicely?
