When ever we move from our current home it's gonna be hard. This house is well laid out and some nice features. Like out big porch and patio. A year ago when we had get together with David's team from work we asked one of the guys if he'd cook the fried chicken he said sure but he'd like to come out early while it was day light so he could see to set up. He didn't believe
David when he said light is not a problem in the garage or especially on the patio.
So to prove it we waited until about 9pm when it was good and dark and turned the Patio lights on and sent these pictures asking if this was enough light.
What'cha think? LOL He got there 30 minutes before the gathering began to set up.
Okay so back on the 15th of January DirectTV people came out to upgrade all our receivers and even our dish. The guy was almost an hour late but was apologetic. He replaces all the receivers and the dish in about 3 hours and I thought had everything working okay. Then that night one of the TV's wouldn't shut off. Plus when he was packing up his truck I noticed all the receivers in each room so I run out saying "hey you forgot the old receivers" to which he replies "Oh no you keep them and Direct will contact you on how to return them. Oh okay fine. So that was the 15 and today is the 30th and guess what we haven't heard from DirectTV. mmmm Oh plus David found the old dish in the flower bed so something else they need to pick up. I just off the phone from DirectTV and we were being charged for those boxes still. Good Grief it's a good thing I called. So got the billing part out of the way so what about getting the receivers and dish back to DirectTV. I'm told they'll send me an envelope for all the cards and a box for only the DVR box. The other boxes and the dish are mine to do what I want with. Oh YAY. Oh well whatever.
I think I mentioned in an earlier how we have 2 trailers but no tractor due to a mis-communication on an auction site that David was using. He was trying to buy a tractor so when we find property we want to retire to we'd be ready. Then He got to thinking if I get a tractor I need a trailer to transport it. So he started bidding on some trailers but was out bid, So no tractor or trailers. Well not exactly. What David didn't understand was that the bidders could withdraw their bids which they did and he won not 1 but 2 trailers but didn't win the tractor. LOL.
Neither trailer ended up being in the best shape so he's had to put some work into them.
They look like new now.
Well at Christmas I couldn't help myself. I mean the devil made me do it. I figured he needed a 3rd trailer.
LOL yep it's a toy. I couldn't resist.Okay. This one even came with a load of blue bonnet seeds.
With all this gloomy, rainy and cold days we have spent much time outside but this past weekend there was just enough just to sit out on the patio and soak up some sun. Even Lilly found herself a comfy spot on the patio to nap and soak up some Vitamin D.
This baby girl is such a joy and she's such a sweetie. She's all healed up from her Spayed and ready to run and play.
Unfortunately she has to wait another 3 weeks before Sophie comes back and they can run like crazy in the back yard. They are a blurr of fur when chasing each other.
