One thing after another

Had a wonderful weekend at Desert Mesa Retreat...weather was good, we even got to sit outside for a couple of hours... we are losing our Managers, they are retiring.. so we hope that the new managers will be as considerate as Carol and Orst...Everyone had a great time.. we laughed so hard, my jaws hurt...i even got a couple of cheques for the fall retreat..
Before I left for the retreat, my dishwasher wasn't working.. Larry didn't have time to look at it while i was gone, but he checked it out on Monday, and of course these new dishwashers are not easy to fix... so i am washing dishes by hand... and while Larry was under the house shutting off the water, he noticed that the hot water tank was leaking.. of course being a OLD mobile, it has fibre board on the floor, and it was soaking wet.so he had to take out the floor and replace it before he could put in the new tank... a simple tank replacement has turned into a real renovation..he had to take out one wall of the closet.. he is not a happy camper.. I did get the bird cage mucked out today... we have two cages for him.. one outside and his inside cage.. he gets it so dirty... i had to use the pressure washer to get then clean... Yankee has been yelling at Willy (old cat), willy has a bad habit of howling when he is lonely, hungary, thirsty... and we yell at him... Willy, shut up.... well that silly bird yells at him while he is howling.. and tells him.... Willy  shut up.... really makes me laugh as he does at the right time....    the trees sure came into leaf while i was gone for the weekend.. even my peach tree make it thru the winter... cherry trees look good, and both my apple trees are getting ready to leaf out... hopefully my crapapple trees will get fruit this year... two apples on two  trees last year...
i am not looking forward to tomorrow... all the clothes from the closet need to be put back..i had to put them on the picnic table on the deck as Joe is in the spare room.... which i would have used if he wasn't there..oh well... he did pick up the hot water tank for us, so that saved us a trip to town..  I made Amish cinnamon cake, sure didn't turn out like it was suppose to... but it does taste good..  I need to start walking and riding my bike soon... need some excerise..  well i had better go see what the hubby is doing and if he needs any help

Doesn't it always seem as if one problem morphs into 6 new ones? Especially with an aging building. Heaven forefend you should have to wash dishes by hand!

And don't you get enough exercise already chasing around with the dogs? No?
