Back yard


Here’s our back yard in Las Vegas.  I’ve been thinking about the house a lot and wishing we could be there.  It’ll happen soon enough, but it’s encouraging to have a look at some pictures every once in a while.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken shortly after the back yard was completed, and part of my famous Garden and Las Vegas series.

Desert landscaping can still be a garden.

Quick note.  All the Loyal Readers were here today, plus my mom.  Mom and LRN9 arrived Wednesday night and we got together Thursday morning.  LRN23 and spouse arrived yesterday evening.  We spent the day today visiting, with LRN23 and Sara leaving in the early evening (to drive all the way directly to Tucson – long trip!).  It’s now about 10:30 in the evening and LRN9 and Mom just left after a delightful day.  I loved it all.

They’re here again all day tomorrow and are flying to Orlando Sunday morning.  We may have to think of someplace to go or something to do.  My mom’s not comfortable walking long distances right now, so the day might have to be adjusted accordingly.  Or maybe we’ll just hang around the Village.  Time will tell.

LRN4 is doing very well.  Her white cell count was down some on Thursday, but her doctor seems to think that’s just how these things go.  He’s watching everything very carefully, so I feel like he’ll be on top of anything bad that might happen before it becomes a disaster.  Otherwise, we’re just moving forward and trying not to worry about day-to-day variations in the numbers.  Progress continues.

LRN4 and I have been walking up and down a fairly long staircase in the hospital building every morning after our clinic visit and again sometimes in the evening.  This morning, she graduated from three times up and down to four, so there’s good progress there.  In addition, she’s getting up there faster and with less exhaustion.  I see strengthening every day.  Unfortunately, I can’t say the exact same for myself.  I want to eat Atkins-approved foods, but I’m not, so I’m not getting back down to my starting weight before this mess all started.  Things will continue to normalize and I’ll get there.  Just not as quickly as I probably could.

Haven’t worked the past two days.  I’ll start up again after company leaves.

And I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this extremely rare toilet news: toilet scam!

See you on Monday.
