Table Rock State Park Feb 2009 365.53

Our hiking group went halfway up the Table Rock Trail to the shelter. The weather was perfect for a day of hiking and the sun was shining on us all morning. We sat on the rock face to eat lunch and relax. There were lots of people and dogs on the trail today. What a wonderful way to spend time with friends!

Just A Dream 365.47

Just A Dream 365.47, originally uploaded by loonyhiker.

When our tenant moved out, we had to get it ready to attract a new tenant. When I saw the things we had to fix, I prayed that it was all a dream but it wasn’t. Then we decided to do the painting and repairs by ourselves. I used muscles that I never knew I had. It was hard work and took us 7 full days of working but we did it. I’m so proud of what we did and I’m pleased with the results. The only problem is that I was so tired when we finished, I forgot to take pictures of how good it looked then.
