More House Projects, Beautiful Bucks on Critter Cam and Celebrating a 21st Anniversary at the Lazy Vegan!

First of all, welcome home to my dad who had quite the week in the hospital where, thanks to modern medicine, doctors were able to "restart" his heart!!  
Welcome home, Dad - and now take it easy!!!

This week at the Lazy Vegan we celebrated 21 years of marriage...and for the first time ever, bought one another identical greeting cards!  HA HA!
The pergola and water feature are still in the final stages - we hope to reach completion on both projects in the next couple of weeks.  In the meantime, we've started some misc. other home improvement projects!  Beautiful bucks on the critter cam this week - it is interesting to see how different species come and go - now it is definitely deer and turkey season!  And that about does it for the week...didn't get around to taking as many photos as usual, but the usual routine still went on!

OMG!  Identical Happy Anniversary cards...soooooo funny...
Time for kale smoothies!  I've been making kale, coconut water and mango smoothies in my Vitamix.

All flopped out.
Happy 21st!
The bun runs to greet the foreman.

Paco loves to pick up sticks - so silly!

Running, bucking and playing before dinner.

On our way to our favorite vegan restaurant to celebrate our anniversary!
Passing the usual sight of beautiful vineyards along the way.
It wasn't planned, but we ended up ordering the same meal - kind of to keep with the same card theme!

We had a great visit with Paul!

Enjoying the sun one morning.

Every once in a while I stop in at the farm where Paco and Luigi came from to say hi to the donks and the emus!

Settling down with her pals one evening.

Another new project - this is the tile mural that was mentioned a blog post or so back...
One of the things I love about the foreman is that once he starts a project, he doesn't stop till it is finished...even if it means working in the dark...

Yum - I roasted butternut squash and then made a butternut squash & garlic soup!

Basking in the sunlight next to her Magic Dream cottage.
The tile mural...almost done!

The foreman helped me frame one of the donkey photos I took...woo hoo!

 Next step for the pergola will be cables running through the beams...
 We hired a pond specialist to hook up all the pumps!
 Eventually the vines will grow up...
 Concrete all finished and waiting for water!
