We had a fun time last evening when our friends came over
and we played Mexican Train.
It was the first time we had people over at the new house.
I had no idea that our friends would bring us gifts.
Thank you my friends, you are so very kind. 😊

The puzzle will be the first one we do this winter.
When the first snow falls we get out the puzzles and have one
going all winter. We go through all our puzzles.
This morning I walked under cloudy skies again and it was 50 degrees.
I walked to town, around both cemeteries, the ball park loop and
up and down all the streets.
Got all my walking in and then met Ken at the old house
and he drove me home.
We had a busy day working outside.
There was a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures in the 60's
so it was a perfect work day.
There are two retaining walls of cinder block out the back
by the basement doors.
Those blocks have to be filled with concrete so during the winter they don't
fill with water and freeze.
This morning we started pouring the concrete into the cinder block holes.
We started with 12 bags of concrete and two at a time put them in
the cement mixer, added water, mixed it up and poured
the concrete down the holes.
It was kind of fun.
When we got done with those 12 bags we bought 15 more
and continued filling in holes.
We finished 2/3 of the wall on the right side.
Then it was lunch time though a bit later than we usually eat lunch.
That was all we wanted to do for one day and will take a few
more days to finish up.
In the afternoon we cleared some dead fall and brush away from
one side of the driveway and brought it up to the burn pile.
Ken is making a low wall of rocks along the edge of the driveway
and worked on that for the rest of the afternoon.
I helped a bit too by collecting small rocks in buckets to fill in some
of the gaps.
It is just amazing how many rocks of all sizes we have here.
We will NEVER run out of rocks.
So that's been my day.
I always feel good after a good days work.
A happy day to you.
Life is Good
