Mike and Ty are putting up a shelter in our garden area at the main building. It’ll be great to have some shade out there.
A small group took advantage of another beautiful day to pop out to Spring Lake Park for a walk. It’s such a spectacular place to enjoy some nature.

There’s a great article on it in the Times today. We’re really excited. Even so, I don’t think we are excited as Jimmy pulling the first harvest of the year out of the garden at Knox Estates:
We’re glad we were able to update one of the bathrooms at Ralph Plumb. As residents in that home age, they need more accessibility, which the walk-in shower provides. It’s great when the state is relatively current with payments and we can do the occasional thing like this. We’ve got two more bathrooms to update on our list. We’re hoping we can get to one next Spring. We’ll have to wait and see as the current state budget isn’t really constructed for 12 months–it’s built to get through the November election.
What a beautiful photo…all the work, all the effort, all the commotion to build the new home. A picture like this, some relaxation on the patio on an unexpectedly beautiful July day reminds us why we do it all, every day.
It’s been a busy summer so far. Here’s Paul folding instruction sheets as part of a new job:
Here’s where the shelter will be in our garden area:

For some of us, these are tasks of drudgery. For others of us, it’s incredibly satisfying to be able to get the basic maintaining of things accomplished. We’ve had to put so many things like that off with all the state funding headaches over recent years that it’s just lovely to be able to get some gravel on our lumpy and pitted parking lot (what a long winter it was!); do some spring cleaning (OK, 7 springs’ worth of cleaning) and keep on working.
Thank you to the Hobans for sponsoring a joint birthday party for Donna and Lisa. It was a lovely time.
