I forgot. It had been my intention to create a blog post every Monday, talking about my creative projects, the move into retirement, whatever was happening in my life. And then with all the preparation for a new patio area, I forgot.
Fortunately, the mats we put down with the grass seed are in fact sprouting grass. It was a bit touch-and-go for a while during the torrential rain storm last week in which the street became a creek (but not quite a river). However, the grass mats did not wash away, and there is new grass.
The fence power washing continues, and in addition to that I even had a chance to experiment in the kitchen and make chicken pesto roll-ups. While at times I forget what exact date and day it is, due to retirement and the summer, the expanse of time does allow me to do a number of things.
Now to get everything finished, the patio furniture assembled and placed, and then maybe we can do some relaxing—before recording some more podcast episodes.
