View From My Window

Saturday, July 31, 2021 — Another warm day here in Tehachapi with some bright white fluffy clouds. No rain clouds in sight, sad to say. Eventually, we’ll get some rain. Meanwhile, we were out watering the garden railroad a bit ago. We have one miniature Spruce that’s looking a bit brown. If it does die, it’ll be the first one to be lost in a long time. Robert’s begun to not fuss when I ask if he’d like some help watering the layout. It cuts the labor and time in half and I do enjoy being out there, checking out the plants. I keep thinking I’m seeing hoof prints in the layout–large dimples in the surface of the ground, right by plants whose tops have been ‘mowed’ off. Hmmm.

We actually went to view a mobile home yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t to our liking but the effort wasn’t wasted as we got to visit one of our friends who recently purchased a home there in the park. And then, since it was only a mile away, we went to Wendy’s for a frosty! LOL I told our friends that living that close to Wendy’s might encourage a bad habit to develop and told them about our ritual outings at Wendy’s–eating a 50/50 frosty (half chocolate and half vanilla) while sitting in our car, watching the trucks and trains go by.

I’ve been giving my heart situation some serious thought and have decided to have the surgery. I’ll find a way to work things out. If it was meant to be, there will be a solution. One of the hardest things in life is learning to be patient and allowing the things you want out of life to come to you, because they will. You just have to give it time.

Be safe — yesterday I read that Kern County is the least vaccinated county in the entire state of California. Gads… Makes you want to hunker down and never leave the safety of your home. Take care of yourself and remember you are special — you’re a one of a kind person. Oh, and be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Blessings to each and every one of you.

About tehachap

Happily married and retired, my hobbies are quilting, reading and anything to do with trains (watching, photographing and running them in our G scale garden railroad). My husband and I have truly enjoyed our retirement, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    Good for you. Of course you’ll work it out. We always seem to do so, don’t we.

      The home had the same dark wood flooring throughout, which was depressing; it was actually a 2 bedroom with a small alcove/den off the entryway that was supposed to be considered as a potential 3rd bedroom but would need construction to make it so; but the major thing was the main hallway was so narrow it would have been impossible to use a wheelchair or walker in it. I’ve since found one that I’m in love with but it’s not on the market. I’ve sent the info to our realtor and to our friends to watch for it if it comes on the market. It’s PERFECT! I’m not disillusioned — patience, patience, patience!
