Hear the lawn mower going on the corner house - my guys never showed up. Second time he has missed me. Excuse the first time was, "It was raining." Waited until around 4:00 then gave my son a call, since he is the one who hired him (a friend of theirs whose children go to school with GD and GS). My son never gave me his tel Number and so will let him handle it. He said he would call him then, so I'm hoping tomorrow (?) I may hear the happy hum of the mower. Don't know about the mulch, at this point, they'd really be sprinkling it between flowers and weeds. Miss having G.T. doing my weeding, but since his sciatica problem a couple of months ago, he's really careful. It will drive him crazy next time he comes down and sees it all so overgrown. It's like going to a hairdresser - you think your hair (yard) looks OK, until you (yard) gets the haircut, and then you think, "Wow, it looks soo much better."
Heat and humidity are both supposed to be on the rise this week-end. That's not the kind of weather for me. Days like today, on the other hand, are perfect.
Pingo, you had pretty much the same scenario with a young man helping you load stuff into the car trunk before at Costco. I've never had the experience, but then, I guess I don't need much help loading my bag of prescriptions in! lol
Glad you are feeling a little better, more optomistic about your husband's condition, miscricket. Sometimes the initial shock of what we're hearing throws us into a tailspin. Passage of a little time lets us absorb the possibilities of treatment that are truly present. Oh, and thanks for the kind words about enjoying my posts. That's good to know.
Probably will be shutting off the computer for the night in another half hour or so. If we don't chat, hope everyone has a great week-end. Hope Kargiver is enjoying her inlaws. They've certainly had great weather for picking things out of the garden and walking with Gracie.
P.S. Novem, just scanned back and see you may be going to Lake Winnie? Oh, can I please hitch a ride with you? Haven't been up there in 3 maybe 4 years, and we used to vacation there every year for a few days at least.
