Odds and Ends

I always have these good intentions of writing certain things but they often get delayed.  The 'transition' process has really picked up and I think I can say that I've really turned the page.  Hopefully a fuller post later but one sign is that I filed to get Social Security on Thursday.  Like all government related processes it seemed a lot more complicated that it need be.

We have been blessed with an early monsoon.  Yay.  Given our deep drought conditions this is welcome.  It also means they've reopened the national forest so hiking is back on the agenda.  And of course we get the beautiful sunsets that come with monsoon season.

Meanwhile the backyard renovation continues.  All the new retaining walls are in and they've started the brick work.

It's great that you can get back to hiking -and that there's rain. Has the rain slowed the construction?

No the rain usually comes in the late afternoon or early evening after things have wrapped up

This is looking beautiful already!

It takes some effort to write regularly. I find myself going in spurts but usually manage at least once per week.

The sunsets are gorgeous. And the back yard is really looking impressive. I'll bet you're anxious to see the end result.
