Good morning on this somewhat overcast day with a temperature of about 77 degrees. What follows will not be in chronological order but it is what I have been up to lately and the help I’ve been getting.
The list !!
As the family is coming up I have been giving things that they want to them. This calls for updating what is left which I have been doing.
At the burn pile.
I still have a lot to burn but I slowed down the last few days due to wind or weather. I’ll resume this activity tomorrow. I may even get more books out of the basement that have absorbed a musty smell to destroy.
Lots of batteries.
I spent time going through all the batteries in the house (including those from lights for the parade days) checking for good ones with the ohms meter Wes found in the garage. These are only part of the good ones I found.
Window blinds and wheelchairs don’t mix.
Careless parking ( mine) of things in front of the French door caused this problem. So I went to Home Depot with a piece of the slats and ordered a new one. It is a Bali blind that you push up with your hand to open (I love the convenience) and it is ideal for a door. It should arrive in mid September.
Work on the yard started.
Debra, my daughter-in-law started working on the yard yesterday with the berm first.
This is the results.
She then moved on to trimming bushes, clearing undergrowth, weed whacking, and some mowing. She will be back to work more next week.
Wes my son has been up a few times to work on clearing and organizing the garage. What a mess that was to have to work on but he hasn’t come up and shot me yet about it!!!
During all this Molly found a happy place to be.
Nothing beats a cardboard box for comfort!
Darlene and Michael were up on Friday to take some of the craft items away. They also lightened the give away/donate column on the list.
Les and Anne were up on Saturday so that took care of some kitchen things, books, and couple of things from the garage. Anne’s mother Kathleen also visited with them.
Today is Sunday so that means Sunday chores (domestic goddess stuff) which I have to start working on. But I’ll be back!!!!
