Company gone, and house is back in order except for the toy room. They seem to think as long as everything (and I do mean everything) pulled out is back inside the perimeter of the room, it is picked up! Dishwasher just shut off, and I did a few that wouldn't fit, by hand. Had a chance to sit down and scan the paper - not much in it, just some paper towels someplace, CVS, I think.
Busy day planned out for myself tomorrow. Looking into a loan for roof and stairs, got some good advice from oldest son today. Always good to get other people's opinions. Still have one more toy to put with pumpkin's b'day presents, couple of other stores locally to pop into, and I may just cancel my regular volunteer day at library this week, it's a short week with G.T. picking me up Thursday after I have my yearly physical exam at dermatologist. Have those gingerbread boys to bake that same day, and don't feel I can lose/give up a day at library. There's that poem to write too. I'll put that on the docket for first thing Tuesday morning when I get up and fresh.
Harry made his appearance today with a second visit so all could admire him. Such a handsome boy.
GGD brought her paints, I had bought a canvas, and she did the koi for me here today. Good idea, because it gave her something to do. I gave her a card with her first "commission" in it. Told her I would gladly have paid that in a store. Also told her I appreciated her coming, I knew it must be boring for a 16 year old, but she said she likes to come here. Must be the food - lol. Speaking of which, first group didn't want to wait for my GD, husband and football playing son - it was close to 1:30 by that time, so we dug into one of the trays of lasagna. The second was still warm when they came, but I don't know why, didn't look half as good as the one we had. Looked dry to me. Embarrassing, but I sent the leftovers home with them with an extra container of tom. sauce to add. They ate and had seconds, so either they were awfully hungry and didn't mind, or it was better than it looked.
Sounds like a fun day you had yesterday, Kargiver. Nice diversion from all the canning you have been doing, hope the weather there was better than it was here.
Icer, have a fun time in Vegas, maybe do a little gambling? If you win, can you loan me $12,000? lol
Want to throw a wash in and test my dryer one more time. Yesterday's thrown in and put on the timed cycle seemed to take a long time to get dry too. May have to put in a repair call. They'll probably tell me to get a new one - things come in 3's - roof, stairs, dryer.
Long post, sorry, just rambling on - as usual.
