a day

I have a cold. Or maybe it’s allergies. Regardless, I am not my usual peppy self. Therefore, I am showing you pictures that I took yesterday with my iPhone. As much as I grumble about modern technology, I do like that I can take pictures with my phone and send them around the world at a moment’s notice.

Pay attention, this won’t take too long.

My assistant, Willy showed up at 9 p.m. and helped me to make a retaining wall system for the garden. I have been wanting to do this for weeks but this was the first day that it was warm enough (mostly) to dig trenches for the walls to fit in. I had made a template and was able to fabricate this project fairly easily as I had gotten the steel cut for a different project which never happened.

Since the steel sheets had been hanging around the studio for a while, they had picked up the markings of a cat…probably Izzy, but it could also have been Max, you never know.

My guess is that Izzy is the culprit

Here is the finished project waiting for a load of dirt and compost to be dumped in each section. It’s going to be an awesome addition to the veggie garden…

So then, because I wasn’t feeling very well, I didn’t get much accomplished the rest of the day. I did, however, manage to capture Ginger in an unusual position. Well, maybe not so unusual.

It was such a treat to sit on the back steps without a coat and feel the sun and see the blue sky.

And since I’ve shown you one primary color, I might as well show you the other two…

I don’t have any pictures of the end of my day…my neighbor has two new horses at her farm and I went over to meet them. But that’s for another post…maybe.

It has come to my attention that it has been a while since I posted pictures of the kangaroo…my bad. She has gone through quite a bit of forward and backward motion, but she’s getting closer to being finished…
