Progress in Paradise... Debbie keeps getting a little better every day. Today we had a milestone: she was able to dress herself after washing up and shampooing her hair. Also, she thinks she may be ready to try the walker in a few days. That will be a big milestone, because then she'll be able to get around (the first floor, at least) on her own. In a few minutes Bruce and June N. will be coming over to visit her. They are the couple who helped us find this house, and they've become friends. They live just a few miles south of us, in Avon.
I did a bit of the finishing work with the loader on my tractor. I knocked down a couple of sharp corners, and flattened out a ridge. To get ready for this work, I had to take my backhoe off. That's always a tricky thing to do. It requires futzing around with the hydraulics to get the backhoe positioned perfectly to take the load off the two pins that hold it in place. It usually takes me about a half hour, but today I did it in just 20 minutes. I'm thinking that maybe I should just spend a day practicing this until I actually get good at it :)
Now I'm hot and tired, and looking forward to a nice visit with Bruce and June!
