Spent $280 at Home Depot for items to build a trellis thingie for SWMBOâ€™s rose bushes, and the makings to put in a picket fence to replace the â€œtemporaryâ€ wire fence out back to keep larger animals off ours. The back fence area will be smaller than whatâ€™s there now; but I donâ€™t think our animals need a large yard to go poop in.
Dinner at Arbyâ€™s and our usual stop at Safeway on the way home. Got some more of those good, dark, sweet, grapes. Other than that, pretty much SSDD for Safeway.
And mostly for our day. Was talking to SWMBO about us making more trips with the Caravan. We have to use it to make paying so much for the thing worth it. With her working during the week, the Genealogy Library on Saturdayâ€™s, and teaching Primary in Church on Sundayâ€™s, she doesnâ€™t have a lot of time to just go places. Not without a lot of pre-planning. Me, on the other hand, I can pick up and head out whenever I get the urge. I talked to her about those urges. Sheâ€™d be okay with me taking a weekend every so often and going somewhere. Iâ€™d ask her if she wanted (or was able) to go along first; but thatâ€™s because I enjoy spending time with her.
So it may be time to visit the John Day Fossil Beds, or the Pine Mountain Observatory, for a weekend or two sometime this summer.
