I hope everyone had an Easter that was as nice as mine. Started out by taking Granny to church and returning two hours later to pick her up. The church is close enough that I can see it from my front yard so it doesn't take much effort to get her there.
Spent some time moving birds around and then working on a boat trailer that I'm rebuilding. Not much more to do and then I will transfer the boat onto it and put the old trailer out on the drive with a for sale sign on it.
Hope put a ham on to cook and we had a big dinner late in the afternoon. Dave and Amy came down from their house and the semi-adopted neighbor joined us. Since her stepfather can no longer drive Hope went and got him. The only way she can insure that he is eating properly is to bring him here or take food to him.
All of the spot the dermatologist burnt are healing and while no longer sore they are starting to itch and it takes some concerted effort not to do so. I still have 6 more weeks to wait before returning for a checkup and I will be glad to know if this treatment has been sufficient or if I will need additional treatment. One spot just below my right eye does concern me. It is a rather deep hole that looks very much like a previous spot that required some rather extensive surgery to excise.
Aging is not for the weak and accepting it gracefully does take some effort. But when I look around I realize how fortunate I am. Several guys my age that I worked with are having to deal with much more than my few aches and pains that by comparison I am really blessed.
While it is much to early to start planting the garden, I think I will start working the ground up and amend some of the compost to it. The soil is really starting to look good and now very few rocks come to the surface when I rototill. I may wind up with a quart of thumbnail size rocks when I pick them up. My son Joe's garden is so rocky that if you only picked up fist sized rocks you could fill a pickup truck.
I need to look for a couple of apple trees to replace the ones I recently cut down and I think I will add a couple of pear trees as well. I should have done this several years ago but I guess later is better than never.
