Good morning, Everybody!

@wvgirlforever, you have some fine looking grandsons.  How lucky and blessed you are! 

 

@DaveMcK, congrats on your move. Your new digs look really nice.  One thing I noticed is that the laundry area is on the same floor as your living space.  I've been thinking about bringing my washer and dryer upstairs from the basement, but I have no idea where I would put them.  My hips, knees, and stairs are not getting along.  Smile.

 

@Frozenoem, I sometimes think my three bedroom ranch is a lotta space to contend with what with the yardwork and repairs.  But five bedrooms sounds like a mini-mansion by comparison.  But there'll be no tiny house for me.

Well, my birds are calling me.  All of the feeders are empty save for the giant worm cake on the patio.  I have two blue jays, a cardinal, a few starlings, and one pesky squirrel taking turns pecking and clawing at that one feeding station.  So after breakfast and coffee, I'm gonna head outside.  Got one birdbath and seven bird feeding stations to fill.

 

Temp is comfortable 79 degrees right now. It's been threatening rain off and on this morning.  But not a drop yet. Anyway, yesterday's torrential downpour was more than enough. 

 

P. S. ~ @DaveMcK, we know you've got a lot to do with the move and getting set-up and all.  So just know although you will be missed, we will hold down the Our Front Porch 'til you get back!

Lydia

@DaveMcK looks like a nice building.  I have been looking at senior apartment buildings but because I still work and also draw social security I have too much income.  Is this a place you're buying as opposed to renting?  It has been tough trying to figure everything out at this later stage of life.  What state is this where the building is located?

@DaveMcK 

 

Looks good, actually have been dreaming of downsizing to condo or retirement home.

 

Gets old mowing, snowblowing, hauling firewood (can’t forget cutting, splitting, stacking and restacking).

 

Almost at stage of wanting a constant temperature at the flip of a switch.

 

3 Floors and 5 bedrooms for one person Is a little much. Have tossed and sold 1000 ft, sq of crap, only 3000 ft. Sq left to go.

 

Froze

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

@Frozenoem they're just beige (in my son's house with the picture of the boys).  In my own living room, I have a very light gray that actually looks good with everything.  Kind of a calming color as well. 😎

Good afternoon all😎, 84 but, it’s good.

 

@MsStretch 

 

Now, I can stop fretting but, don’t expect 20 mile hikes for awhile. I pray🙏.

 

Will be soaking and have retired my Kelty (Backpack) for abit. Time to find muscle relaxers - and definitely dry out (water) bladders, I was tired by return and ignored them.

@wvgirlforever 

 

Have a question I never thought I ask anyone, what color are your walls😀? Have a large black wood stove in the middle of my living room, and tired of looking at 1960 fern wallpaper.

The wall color makes the black mantle and tv fade out.

Happy Tuesday morning to everyone.  Thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes.  I got to spend some time with my son and his family.  That made the day a whole lot better.  I didn't even see there was any type of response from all of you with the wishes until this morning when I signed in.  For some reason, I don't seem to be getting the notices when I am mentioned (if that's supposed to happen).  It has been so horribly hot the past couple of days and this morning it has dropped around 10+ degrees and no humidity.  YAY!!!!!  I was supposed to be retiring this coming Friday but with the virus going on it seemed smarter to keep getting a paycheck if I still have to stay home and sit on my couch working from home.  Who thought we would see anything like this in our lifetime?  Have a wonderful day!!

 

4 grandsons that make my day every day
