Haven't heard much from anyone so am just touching base. After struggling for over two months of 100 degree weather, the dry spell finally ended on schedule. Go figure. We got rain on June 1. We're now getting rain late every afternoon. What a blessing, altho' the humidity is high all the time. It's still in the 90's every day and 70's at night, but loving the change. We felt so lucky, living on our hill as we have wonderful breezes which don't reach down by the river. Rene likes to come up here to get away from the heat. It's great to not have to be quite so conservative with our water, just have to check that we've had enough rays to get us thru the evening without running the generator. Living off-grid there's always something. We're lucky tho' as the folks in the village have to worry about the fact that there are countrywide power outages and the village has been without water more than they've had it. Something about their pumps. Anyway, we're blessed.
We're both doing fine. I'm trying to stay active, but the weather has made it hard. Errands take up some of the time, but boring. We're waiting to hear from our realtor as to whether we'll remain with her or try it on vour own again. Nothing happening, altho' several places have sold near our village so maybe our turn will come.
Our dogs continue to be a blessing. The setters are so loving and loyal. Their antics keep me laughing. Shannon really describes the term "dogging". Wherever I go, she's right there. Bailey is much the same way, but at a distance. He's looking good, but at 12 years he's showing his age. For a 135# Akita he's doing great. I don't want to think too much about it and for now he's doing well. He continues to be a true friend and such a blessing. We couldn't have made it here without him. I hope we can get him home again.
