We hired a local contractor, Larry Nolan to do the work for us. He does a lot of projects around town and I talked to him one afternoon and he started the next morning. He knew we needed it fast. All our materials are coming from Home Hardware Building Center right in Rivers and they deliver. Big help. Here is some of the progress. Still more to go next week.
We also invested in a porta potty for out back so that we don't have to run way back to the motorhome every time nature calls!! It was cheaper to buy one than to rent one. It is not for customer use so we will have to get a lock for it.
The golf course is starting to look nice with the addition of some flowers and the perennials are growing fast and should soon flower.
We are not all business here and we still have time for the grandkids. Gramma likes to get out the kiddy pool and a bunch of toys for the wee ones.
Grace gets to spend lots of time with us and sometimes I get to babysit a little bit. When I do, sometimes there are some Shenanigans happening. Notice the big Swan Dive that is about to take place. Could she hurt herself? Certainly, but the fun factor really out weighs the risk, until Gramma sees her and shuts us down. I didn't see anything that dangerous do you??
Charlie's paws are really giving out fast so he now walks more on his ankles than on his paws. Because of that the gravel and stones hurt his legs a lot so I had to come up with a method of making some protection for him. I wrap his foot in a tensor bandage up past where he walks on it and then pull a kids sock over it to keep everything in place. He loves it and it sure makes him walk better. He even runs sometimes now, so I guess socks will be his new normal.
I had to get the old orange boat up and running so I got Corey Sedgwick to fix it and give it a tune up. I need it to start anytime I want because we are using it for a rescue boat in case anyone who rents a kayak gets in trouble and needs help. I went and picked it up and took it for a spin before parking it on the beach where we normally launch the rentals.
Just after I parked it, there was a little bunch of white pelicans floated by. Nice to see that they are back again to nest. We had about 30 here last summer.
We have had some really warm weather here for a while now. It took long enough to come but it sure felt good when it got here. Tomorrow is a little cooler but then it will be nice again. I checked the Saskatoon blossoms and it looks like they escaped any frost this year, so as long as it rains, there should be a good crop of berries to pick. We like to make a syrup and pour it over our ice cream as a sundae topping.
