Slept in a bit because I had no morning appts. DH has been cleaning and straightening like crazy because some friends are planning to stop by for coffee about 3 pm after another appt nearby. It is funny because it bothers him that the place looks lived in and not all together yet more than me. We have been to their house when they were moving in and doing remodeling. And one time last year we were invited to dinner and the wife admitted that she felt like we were family so she was in the same clothes she had… Read more »

Sunny with a high of 55F today; got the bed changed, showered and towels washed; finished my book, read a couple newspapers, had a nap and watched the NCIS’s. Big Day 😁 
Recorded Cat Ballou/Boys Town, haven’t seen ’em in a long time. I watched It Happened One Night not too long ago or i would’ve recorded it too. One of my faves is You Can’t Take it With You; it’s a crazy movie, and so heartwarming.

Church this morning (with several hand-offs of info from and to clients) and then lunch from Wendy’s and picked up prescriptions at the grocery store. Then to the old house for an afternoon of sorting and packing. I told DH that I would allocate Sunday afternoons to t6yring to help empty the other house. Can’t really afford the time, but really can’t afford not to either. Went through everything left in my old office and put a lot in recycle, and some to come here and some to Goodwill.

Hello friends ♥ How wonderful to wake up to sunshine today. Sun gave me a burst of energy this morning. (that does not happen very often) 😉 I swept the kitchen floor and filled the bucket to mop.

Also sprayed the kitchen window sills. This keeps the ants away. Then back to mopping. I can’t fix lunch until I get the stove back together..(grilled cheese/tomato) ….energy is… Read more »
