I made a pitcher of tea today for the first time in years. I usually drink water. It's great with lemon or lime, but today it had to be tea!


Today a neighbor came over to help with the new mattress. We got it positioned right side up on the frame. Then he helped me load the old mattresses on the truck. I took them, the box, and plastic to the recycling center and then ran a couple of errands. We won't sleep on the new mattress until tomorrow night, but I am so happy to have that box out of the living room floor and our bed put back together!

Additional pieces of wood are attached in the bed frame, and glue will hopefully hold the frame pegs. The little piece of paper is there to catch any glue leakage. I'm trying to line up some neighbors to help me with the mattress tomorrow.

Nice Day!

Today we had a blue sky day. The temperature was 71 degrees. I did a little shopping and then we worked some on our poor dismantled bed. A couple of more days of work on the bed frame and we will be ready to put that heavy mattress on the frame. I just hope the work is on consecutive days😀

The guy came out to pressure wash the house today. It took him a while to get everything out and set up, then the pressure washer didn't work. So he loaded everything back in his hatchback and said he would come back on another nice day.

The alarm clock is set. Tomorrow a guy with a pressure washer is supposed to come early and wash the scummy-looking stuff off the siding. I hope he does a good job.

What's New?

Running my errands as a volunteer at the hospital, people ask what we have new in the gift shop and others within earshot lean avidly to hear. It was a surprise to me to see the interest on their faces😀
