Desert Hot Springs

Dorothy and I got in before two, after stopping for ice cream for tonight. Steve's truck was out front but we didn't see him immediately, just saw a mop and rag in front of Dorothy's room.

Steve was running around in my room, still needed to change sheets on the bed, so we said hi and then he took off. He came back with clean sheets, duvet cover, pillow cases, and put it all together. It's a bit of a workout, dressing the featherbed, and I didn't even offer to help. It looked like he knew exactly what steps to take, and anyone else would throw a wrench in it.

He told me, rapidfire, about the troubles he is having getting help that is reliable here. People quit, don't finish on time, do things they were not hired to do...on and on. So he's very frustrated. He has to keep hiring construction workers to finish up the Beat Hotel, and now he is so far behind he can't open it until June. So there is a lot of lost revenue there.

The weather is beautiful, warm but not too, a breeze. The plants have been cut back some in tthe patios, including the bougainvillea in Dorothy's. Everything looks good, beautiful, and feels calming. I am going to lie down for a while, then we will all convene for a siimple dinner tonight.

Oh heaven, heaven. really.
