A Bit of a Post
I also picked some bell peppers, they aren't as pretty because the heat really burned them. I should have picked them before the heat, but it slipped my mind until it was too late.
I finished my chicken rug and got it steamed. I just haven't finished the edges yet. It makes me happy to see it.
My daughter and her family are house sitting next door, so I have got to experience what it was like for my grandparents when we lived next door and we would wait until my grandpa's work truck would park and then we would run down to their house to watch him drink his coffee.
My grandpa worked for a company named Knight's Building Materials. In those days, wall board was made of lath and plaster. At that time Edward's Air Force Base was being built. The road that went to the desert was called the CANYON road. It has been fixed now but I still get car sick and I don't normally ever get car sick except when we drive the canyon. My grandpa, would get up at 2:30 in the morning and begone to work by 4:00 AM. The didn't have a forklift to unload all of that lath and plaster but did it by hand. The drive through the canyon then was about two hours because of how windy it was. In the summer he would come home so wet and yet, when we ran down to his house, I know he had to be tired, he would always want to know about our day.
I was reminded of that today as my grand kids ran back and forth through the gate to my house. I really think my grandparents must have been saints. I am not them.
Have a great week next week,
