While heading down the highway just outside of our town the other day I spotted a very big bird sitting in a tree. I took another quick look and noticed the white head which could only mean one thing...
I couldn't stop on that busy highway, so I turned down another less busy road, pulled over and grabbed my camera. I had to zoom as far as I could and I was so excited that I could barely hold the camera still, but there he was! The sightings are becoming more frequent around this area. I saw another Bald Eagle a little later fly overhead as I traveled on down the highway. I love these majestic birds and I'm waiting for the day when I can get a better shot.
In other news, we were back in the water heater replacement business again over the weekend. The new water heater for the house is working fine, but we found out the water heater in our rental building was going kaput. Sigh. So, off we go to Home Depot for a new one and the fittings needed to install it. I may have mentioned this before, but it's nice that BG is a handy guy and can do this work himself. I am his assistant, handing out tools and otherwise lending moral support!
Now that the water heaters have been replaced, new roofs are on both buildings as of year before last, and the foundation work is finished that will prevent water from coming into the basement.
And I'll be holding my breath when the heavy rains begin this year, wondering if the work done will indeed keep the water out.
What will need to be done next? Does the work ever end? Replacing our front patio will need to be done this spring. We have a couple of fir and spruce trees that need to be cut down. A lot of yard work is awaiting spring weather.
And that is just the outside work. We won't talk about inside. I think I'd rather go antiquing. Doctor's orders, after all. More about that next time. Happy Monday to you!
Until next time...
