DairyKing's Journal, 05 June 2016

Good Morning, FS Warriors! I apologize for going so long without posting. Life got in the way. It was much easier to post when I was sitting at a desk all day and bored. Now I am so busy that I struggle choosing which activity to do first, or not all all that day.

I took DW to Iowa this weekend to see the King Tut exhibit. It was fascinating. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Davenport, IA which was a relatively newer hotel and very nice. Topped off the evening with dinner at the Texas Roadhouse. In exchange for DW's participation in following me around in Northern Tool, I spent about three hours in Hobby Lobby with her. Oh, the sacrifices we men must bear!

I finally finished pouring the concrete floor perimeter, where I installed drain tile, in the room for the Endless Pool. It takes about 30 days before I can seal it. I'm not sure when I'll start installing the pool, but I plan to get it done before Fall is over this year.

The garden is doing great. Green peppers are about the size of a pack of cigarettes already. I ate a golden cherrie tomato yesterday. The other bigger tomato plants all have tomatoes on them. Cucumbers, kale and Swiss chard have just emerged and the green bean plants now look like small plants. The only thing that hasn't emerged yet is the lettuce. My first time growing it, so I don't know if it just takes a while to germinate or not. I'm not going to starve this year. Come to think of it, I never have. Guess that's why I'm on here.

Still working on the boat, but it's coming along. I have everything I need to make it lake and river worthy; just need more time to work on it. All the roses are looking good. We went a little nuts this year in planting annuals and perennials. I still want to plant another half dozen trees.

Started Jeff Galloway's Run-Walk-Run program. I really want to do a half marathon early next year. I even still have the marathon on my bucket list. Hopefully I will drop a few more pounds in the process. Now that I have retired, I have changed our nursing home ministry to 9:30 in the morning; our next one is tomorrow. I finished one Nazarene Ministry Preparation course last week and start another one tomorrow.

Well, that's basically it in a nutshell. Lots of work to do, places to go and people to see. If the weather cooperates, maybe I'll get out on the motorcycle tomorrow after the nursing home visit. Tuesday and Wednesday, I'll probably be over at the church crawling around in the attic installing electric fans and new lighting. Life is good; enjoying every minute of it! Well, almost every minute of it. Here's wishing all of my FS Friends a great week. Toodles!

Lovely and informative journal, DK! I bet the King Tut exhibit was fascinating. You and your wife sound like hubby and I. He loves the tool stores and I love Hobby Lobby. Ha Ha! Hugs!
