Wednesday the 16th we finally decided to head to New Mexico. First we had to complete some chores. Martin delivered parts to his guys then sprayed for weeds while I mowed the lawn and filled the dumpster. We still have a bunch of New Mexico garbage from wrapping the house so I decided to dumpster dive. First I needed ladder. Hummmm this will do….
Next stuff as much paper in there as possible. Jump, jump, haul, stuff, jump some more. Ahhhhhh full.
Martin wanted to be in our happy place for his birthday. I’m so glad with all the drama going on we were able to this.
Thursday March 17 we start our day with our morning walk. The drama continues. Poor Martin can’t even enjoy our time.
So after many phone calls, emails and looking over plans I take him to our local special place.
He’s “Like what are you up too?” Me, “Nothing why?”
Surprise!!!!! Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Martin, Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!
He blows and blows but can’t blow the candles out.
His special German Chocolate Pie was worth with all that blowing. He huffed and puffed and blew the coconut right off!!! Thank you Kathy Knapp for this special gift.
Looks like he swallowed a canary but it really is the best pie ever!!!!
I stained the whole front of the green house because the next day our lift was being returned. Since we won’t be up here all summer no sense paying for something we won’t be using. It was sad cause this lift was a big help in our building process.
After stained pulled the 5 gallon paint out of the cargo container. Ready to paint!!! Nope!! Opened the paint and holy hell it looked like crap. Paint that has been frozen then thawed is no good. Ah crap. To late to go to town. So instead lets go to dinner. Friday night is Mexican food night. So we enjoyed our dinner and on the drive back we saw two elk along the road then BAM!!!! A herd of 16 elk. They are just such beautiful creatures. As long as you drive by they ignore you but slow down and stop to watch they stop and watch you. It’s a stand off!!! Then they move turn and look to see if you move. We don’t do they move again. It’s like a chest match.
Hello Saturday ( today) nice day for a drive. Need paint and something to fix the hose to the hot water heater. When we arrived the damn hose broke water all over the closer. Always something with a Moho. Luckily I am married to McTreat. He can fix anything.
So after rolling and rolling all afternoon Martin fix the hose we were able to sit and take a deep breath.
Our happy place in our knoll.
Till bext time……
