It is still cold and rainy.
Usually the State Capitol Building stands out vividly against the skyline. Not today. (picture taken unsafely from my car as I was driving down Highway 94).
The plumber was supposed to come Friday. He didn’t show, nor did he call. When we got a hold of him finally, he said his mom had taken ill and apologized. Said he would be here Saturday. Saturday comes – he’s a no show, no call. Didn’t return our calls either. He called this morning. Said his mom had been operated on, apologized, and said he will be here tomorrow morning, 8:00 am. I understand an illness in the family, but I don’t understand neglecting to give us the courtesy of a call. Tomorrow is his last chance.
In the meantime, the bathroom looks like this. Just use your imagination, ok?
We are fighting the rain and the birds for our cherries this year.
Normally we don’t pick them up off the ground, but the rain knocked them down and darn it, they are still good!
The tart cherries make the best cherry pie in the whole wide world. I know.. the butcher block needs to be oiled. Rolling out pie dough always leaves it dry and dull looking.
THEY are calling for sunshine tomorrow. Please, God, help THEM be right for a change.
