Staying home for a few weeks is allowing me to check many boxes on my to-do list. My closet is completely organized and Goodwill is opening a specialized branch outlet for short fat women who like black pants and pink shirts. (Oh my goodness, guess what I am wearing right now?) I have finished needlepointing the ring pillow for Lisa's wedding and it is being finished this week.
And we have been entertaining! Pretty much three or four nights a week, we have invited long-neglected friends/relatives to dinner here, or have taken friends out. So much fun catching-up, and I so enjoy the menu planning and cooking. The weather has cooperated enough that we have been able to dine outdoors - we even used our air conditioning THREE DAYS IN A ROW!
Our contractor, Arnold Castro, has sent more photos from our casita build-out at the Motorcoach Country Club in Indio, California. Pretty much everything is finished - except for the brick on the exterior. Huge delay in acquiring the brick we chose, so another brick had to be selected and ordered and this brick is also delayed. Soon!
We are leaving for Indio on September 24th - only one month from now - for the wedding and the winter. We have plans to actually use/drive our RV this winter to travel around the southwest, though I suspect a certain little someone will keep us returning often to SoCal.
Until my next update, I remain, your busy correspondent.
