We were glad to get home to our little paradise. Jubilee was certainly glad to see us. And though the pool looked like this before we left …


… we had known for awhile that there was a leak. By the time we got home, it had gotten serious. John got to work on re-grouting the tiles while the water level was down, and attempted some patching, but eventually we had to call in the big guys ($$$) and have it done right. The heat and sun were relentless, so Engineer John worked out this clever solution for making some shade!

We are happy to be back to our regular quiet routine of just being home. John plays pickle ball a couple times a week. I’ve started a yoga class and get my Herceptin every 3rd week. John made meatballs a la Lidia (who he religiously watches every night on TV). The painted buntings are back for the winter.
