Weekend, Day One.........
A Saturday morning shot shows the sun is still moving. I want to be taking a shot on December 21st just to see where its will be positioned. I keep thinking it is creeping away but really it is just the earth's tilt. I see there are some leftover vapor trails from the Air Force jets.
We had signed papers for our new house right after Christmas. We knew we would be moving so things were packed in sturdy containers and wrapped for protection. We did label the big tree as it has four boxes to keep all of it's parts. I think that once I have brought everything out that I will be able to put things back knowing where each thing is for next Christmas. I said the our Chicago area kids that in many ways we are still moving in as we unpack toys, decorations, and the large collection of tools.
The daytime moon is out in the late afternoon. I haven't seen the moon for quite a while at night. When it starts into another cycle I may get to see it. By the shadows in this photo the shade of the row of houses west of this house is casting onto this roof with four bathrooms. Designers of the house are conscious to be sure all bathroom vents end up on the back of the house. It makes for a cleaner look on the front side of the house.
Our guest last week gifted us with a poinsettia. It is a larger one and seems to be doing well. I am trying to figure out the growing conditions in the newer home. I noticed the violets don't need so much water in this house but vines and the poinsettia needs to be watched for soil moisture. The poinsettia really isn't planted in soil so it make it more of a game as to when to water it.
I will keep sneaking in photos of the grandsons as time permits. We bought these veggies sticks of the youngest as a treat. He tasted the cheese coated pieces and could not stop eating them. At first I had to hand them to him one stick at a time. Eventually he crawled up on the chair and helped himself. He did keep trying to hand them out to us with his spare hand.
It is good for it to be Saturday. I am not setting goals today and will just do what I can do. We may visit the bookstore for a short visit. My wife has a cold that is on its 5th day so we will make it a short day. I am still dragging from working on the house. It takes a few days to recoup form common labor. Making it a short day out will be good. Thank you for stopping in today. I wish you all to have a great weekend.
