Balcony has become my refuge.
When Weng came to visit with me, she suggested I put the cot out there. Wow, Weng! I am so thankful to you for that. The cot is a fantastically comfortable place for me to sit when I am out on the balcony. And the cot provides a place for stuff that I need out there too. [ie; water, a book, my MacBook]
Because I spend a lot of my day out here, I've had time to transform the garden. The garden now is properly watered. And properly fed with fertilizer. Before, I actually went about "killing" the plants with terrible watering and fertilizer techniques! 😡
The little waterfall now runs beautifully. Several weeks ago, when I took the waterfall apart, the reason that the fall only dribbled came clear. Now, the fall does not dribble anymore. It runs! And the sound of the water splashing into the pool is gorgeous to the ear.
It has come to me that there are some plusses to my recent descent into a world of diminishing physical ability. I have time now, for the balcony.....
3pm - Lunch at Sizzler
This restaurant is one of my favorite places to eat! Their entrees are very good. But it is their salad bar that tips the scale for me.
I ordered the "1/2 dozen fried shrimp" which for a senior, includes "1-trip to the salad bar", the "free drink bar", "soup bar" and "Mexican food bar". My favorite thing at the Mexican Food bar is fried chicken wings and legs. Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention, "the dessert bar!"
All of this for $8.99 !
5pm - Down at the pool
When I returned to Guava Gardens, I decided to stay at the pool for awhile. Usually, I go directly up to my apartment. This afternoon is so gorgeous, that I am unable to resist the pool area.
It's 79℉. The sky is sooooo blue. Not one cloud.
I am the only tenant at the pool area. I don't know why that is so. But it is. This means that I have a private pool and spa all to myself. I am sooooo lucky.
