That whole process of dealing with all of that paperwork was more stressful than I thought it would be, and by the time I got back home from the notary, I was too exhausted to get the material ready for mailing. Besides, I need to scan all of the documents in question to retain copies of the notarized documents and everything I'm sending in case any of these places later come back and tell me they've never received anything. I wish I wasn't being cynical, but things have gone astray and people have told me they never have received things when I'm pretty sure they have.
It wasn't all stressful work today, though. Our one remaining rose bush is putting out blossoms this spring, so I got some pictures.
Because the bush is located in between the garage and the carport where we built the shelter for the travel trailer, it isn't getting as much sun as it once did. Consequently, it appears to be trying to climb up to reach more sunlight.
The middle of the bush looks half-dead, but the lower portion has a bunch of buds getting ready to open.
The upper reach is coming along nicely. Lisa tied it to a post because it was swaying around badly in the winds we get here and she didn't want it to snap off.
I like the rose bush, although I'm not much of a gardener. I managed to kill off the other bush by trimming it back too badly and I think some of the other plants strangled it. The one that remains is only a ghost of what it was when we first got here. I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
