|our 'bird feeder'|
if you're aware of our 'bathroom repair saga'...and even if you're not...
it all started back in february...with me losing an earring.
a pair of celtic knots that sam and i each wear (wore) one of.
sam crawled under the trailer to check the trap in the tub's drain pipe.
it wasn't there. but he discovered a leak.
SO, began the tearing down of the walls and pulling out the tub...
which exposed damp and moldy-ish floor and lower walls.
this past sunday...
we christened our new shower!
yay! finally...we can wash indoors again!!
JUST KIDDING! our place has two bedrooms, each with a shower and toilet.
but now we have our own shower again...
and ALL the tools, ladder, caulking, paint...have been moved back out to the shed.
here's a pic of sam doing the final touch ups sunday morning.
it was a pre-fab shower. walls in 3 pieces. we did everything ourselves.
well, sam did most of the work...i did the painting and some of the caulking.
sam did the rest.
yay! it's finished! we did a good job.
so i'm home between appointments
and wanted to get this out there.
tomorrow i have only ONE massage...so i'll have some time to catch up on my blog reading!
sam found a dead hummingbird outside the shop where he works.
even though the guys he works with gave him some weird & surprised looks...
he picked it up, bagged it...stuck it in the fridge...and brought it home to me!
(pretty soon...i'll have a hummer skeleton!)
poor little hummer.
anyway, i took a picture so you could see the BRIGHT iridescent red neck.
it was so cool. i'd never seen this up close before.
what a gift!!
better than flowers.
speaking of flowers...the jasmine is blooming.
aaaaaah. right by the front porch. i love the scent.
i spotted a Five-lined Skink the other day...hiding under the palmetto palms.
the Gulf Fritillaries are starting to come around.
last year they were all over the yellow lantana.
this one likes the Blue Mist.
(i don't know why this plant is called a Blue Mist...it's really more of a lilac color)
UPDATE on my sciatica.
my butt is sore...from rolling around on the floor...on a tennis ball.
BUT other than this soreness, the sciatica is no longer a pain in my ass...
just my legs. a little. especially towards the end of the day.
with stretching, heat & ice...and sam's leg massages...
it's better every day. WAY better.
thanks for all your healing wishes.
now...YOU make a wish.
gotta run now. i leave you with a parting moon shot.
no, no...you can open your eyes...not THAT kind of MOON shot.
