Today was a very busy day here! I know, they all should be. I got up this morning and started straight away with the dishes and the kitchen worktops. After that I sorted out most of the laundry in the baby’s room. Following that, I put a lot of laundry through the washing machine. Dylan was off school this week for reasons we shall not discuss, and his morning job included cleaning the mini-pond at the front patio. He could not stomach the thick black mud about four or five inches thick that coated the bottom, so I got a hand trough and cleared that out for him. I also got on the ladder and trimmed the palm fronds off the taller palms in the front yard, and cleared slats off the front pergola. After getting the high work done, I went ahead and trimmed all the other shorter palms of dead fronds and then took a little afternoon break. The family loaded into the truck and went down to the Indian Reservation and had a few treats there. When we came back home I trimmed a few pine trees and some more palm trees and prepared some of the downfall for a fire in the fire pit, but I am too tired to mess about with that now.
Today also saw me sort out some personal financial business, and balance the bank books. Oh, and I took out all the rubbish from all of the bins around the house.
Okay, this has been one of the least sedate days I have had since last summer, and it felt good to get busy and to have lots to do. With the whole family planning to move up to Idaho though, and this house to prepare for renting, we have finally got lots to do! This is better suited to those who have a life out here in the desert, and wish to keep it. As for us, we are better off in Idaho! The moving process should occur for the most part over the next few months, and the main move happen, if all goes to plan, at the start of summer, before the kids head off to England, I think! More to follow on this topic for sure!
