Middle of the Week........Already.

The iris continue to bloom in the their vases. I have become weary of trying to get an uncluttered background.  I look at the shot now and see if the abstract shapes made by all the things behind it seem natural. It is seem good,  I just use it.

Big Blue is doing well in the backyard.  I know there are a few birds nest in among the branches. I also know that the bunny and her baby tend to live under there. Birds like to land in it after they have been at the bird feeder. It is such a great tree.

I needed a truck when we moved.  I bought one after the major move.  I will use it for the last of things that need to be moved from the basement. I paid a very low price for it from a friend's daughter.  It has high mileage and I probably won't add much that number.  I don't like crawling into it so will be buying rails for it to help me to step up to get it. It is fun to drive and I will have to be careful as its size is larger than I am use to in driving.  I had a van for years so I know that I can handle it.

It will be great to use when buying flowers and trees.  I won't be doing construction work at the new house but I might be carrying some plywood in it.  The truck bed is a normal size. We need to buy a bed for a friend and move it as well as move furniture that we are going to give to her.

 I have to dump my Taurus now and clear the end of the garage so the truck can be parked inside of it.  The truck is twenty feet long and my garage is twenty feet and nine inches. It will fit. The daughter  and her husband of my friend owns a business downtown Des Moines and they do a lot of work for people who collect show cars. The truck has had the company emblems removed and it has been turned into more of a show vehicle.

I enjoy the sky views we have at our home.  I like the panoramic view that we get every single day. We have a clear sky today and it is going to warm up again. We are not at the very top of the hill but it is pretty close.

We are back to unpacking things again.  It is a slow process as we settle in to the new house. Living so long in the other house things found places to be one piece at a time.  Now we have to take it as groups of things and find the best places for them.  Storage is the easiest solution for a lot of it for now. Our time to do the unpacking is limited but we are learning how to steal time in the day to work on the process.

My tomato plants are doing well and never suffered from the planting.  The birds and bunnies left them alone.  I need to find other things to plant among the tomato plants but am not sure what that should be. I also need to get out the old fashion hoe and loosen the soil around those plants.

I appreciate your visit today.

I really like the truck. It will be so handy for projects in the yard and helping out friends, etc. When John could still drive, he loved having a truck. Good news about your tomato plants. We did not plant any vegetables this year. I love that Blue Spruce tree. It is a good "privacy plant."
