Miranda, Ashley F. and Justin F. spent Easter with Miranda’s parents. A nice relaxing Sunday. I spent most of Friday working on the house, continuing to caulk. Although I have no evidence to prove otherwise, I truly believe that it will make my house most energy efficient. Laugh if you wish, but there were a lot of spaces where cool air could escape in the summer and warm air in the winter. I have officially put a stop to all of that escape. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a little bit more to go, but I have gone through 3 boxes of caulk and I’ll probably need one more for the front porch area and the garage. Actually, I should probably purchase two boxes since I believe that caulk will solve most of my home’s problems, kind of like duct tape.
Flowers from a hanging plant in the back yard. As you can tell from the previous three pictures, there’s quite a few from home. I haven’t been anywhere in quite some time. Actually my little trip to McKinney was the first “trip” which was more than one hour away. I am getting restless and it stinks. I really need a vacation.
I’ve lived in my home for almost a year now and through all this time, I’ve never noticed this carcass of a tree that grew into a chain link fence on the side of my yard and then, obviously, what’s left of the tree has slowly worn away. You would think that with all of the mowing and yard work that I do that I would have noticed something like this over the course of a year, but I didn’t. It’s pretty amazing to think about it. A lot of things had to happen over the course of time to make this “tree” look the way it does, time, sunlight, water, heat, etc.
There’s a couple of reasons why we may be delaying a vacation. First off Miranda has school obligations which keep her from getting away right after school is finished. Secondly, Miranda is thinking about going back to school and becoming a nurse or something else in that field. I truly support this decision and I want her to go. This will mean very lean times for myself and my beloved, but it will eventually provide a better life for the two of us. Not only from a monetary standpoint, but she will have days off that she would not have now, it would allow her to essentially be a stay-at-home mom when that day comes. It’s not happening anytime soon, but eventually.
