We drove out to my wife's mom's place. She hasn't seen Carole since before Carole's recent surgery, and I wanted to muck about a bit with my Casita travel trailer. I installed the digital tuner on the flatscreen TV in the trailer, but pretty much took it easy just walking around the property and watching some football on the TV.
We figure that, eventually, we'll retire there. Carole grew up in the house, it's still basically out in the country (or at least at the edge of the Charlotte area urban sprawl). The lot's rather large, the house is nice, and we'd be comfortable out there. We'll see.
At any rate, I even took a day off from working on the new novel. It was that lazy a day. I need more of those.
The side yard, driveway, parking area. The huge grassy area was once the location of the vast gardens Carole's dad would plant and harvest every year. We'll do the same when (if) we move there one of these days.
Part of the vast back yard which is quite striking in Spring when the azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom.
