What keeps this Old Lady so Busy?

 

Busy day yesterday,
Busy today
Busy tomorrow.
What can this old lady be so busy about?
Fixing things, painting, resin-ing stuff, and a trip into town because the RV had overpowering chemical smells and I needed to get out for a while.
I painted José’s table and did a fairly poor job resin-ing it but I didn’t expect perfection on plywood so I may or may not add another coat. Not much of it is even seen as it’s usually covered with more stuff. Just wait, my little RV is getting yet another fixer-up and I like what’s happening here! The outside waits for it’s fixer up but I did get a couple cool and colorful outdoor rugs to put out at my doorway and the studio doorway but I have to nail them to the ground so they stay here (and not get blown away in the wind, not worried about theft!)

Great news, my studio gets electric tomorrow, Frank came by today with enthusiasm an d says he can help me with the insulation as well. .Someday…. One thing at a time.
The wind continues to take a toll on my plants but a new RV moved in today next to me and they have a building too which gives me privacy and helps block some of the wind for me. All Good.
We are mostly old folks here, I have two 90+ people on either side of me( vibrant ageless people) and I think the average age (not counting them) here is about 70, I fit right in.
Truth or Consequences is a town of the elderly as well, notable when I go to shop at Walmart, lots of older women, men too but I notice the women more, probably with reason, as I can relate.

It is a beautiful area , or would be if there wasn’t so much trash and rusted out trailers and junk, lots of smaller communities with trash everywhere. Despite all that, I like it here. Here in the park, everyone keeps their area neat, I guess CJ (owner) would chase them out if they didn’t, she runs a class act here. Have I told you she is almost 80? She looks great, slim active and with many tales to tell in her daily happy hours. I don’t often attend, it’s not obligatory socialization is good but not expected, l don’t feel guilty for not attending or sharing but go now and then, to be social to hear other’s stories
I have a flag flowing off the side of my studio, makes me feel like a citizen (and GirlScout). I’ve never flown one before and feel guilty for leaving it up and not taking it down every night, no one else does here, not sure of the protocol, I probably could google it.
Heard my first mosquito last night.


Finally, I’m sitting outside listening to Nicola Di Bari love his raspy voice, the evening is overcast at 8:30 pm with a pinkish gray sky and everyone must be inside watching TV cuz I see no one around.
Listening to a beautiful song just before I go back inside, but who should appear but Becca and Dan to join me in a glass of wine, music and looking at the stars which are bright and shiny sky is clear and dark. Only one glass as the blue wine bottle is now empty, I need to get another ‘box’ of wine cuz that seems to last forever even when I regularly indulge.

  1. Good for you, so many positive things going on! I really enjoy reading your posts, but have trouble seeing the light type…would you consider using the “bold” setting?

  2. It was great to read your blog today.
    I told you I had a bad week, well!!!!!!
    Lastnight, I was catching up with my emails and checking face book.
    Suddenly there was a burst of lights, but bangs!!!!!
    The neighbors trees had fallen on the main power line, 4th of July was nothing to this.
    This 12:15 . All the power was off. The kids were asleep.
    I found my cell phone, called 311 .
    When she asked me my address, I couldn’t remember! I told her 3 doors down from the park.
    By this time I had remembered the house number.
    I felt such a fool.
    She was very patient with me.
    Now Kipa was awake
    .it was 10am before they had finished cutting down trees, pulling 3 lines, it was incredible, fascinating to watch
    They were climbing the trees like monkeys.
    Of course there was no sleeping.
    All is well, every one safe, good thing it wasn’t raining..
    They are brave men
    And so it goes…….
