Since today is national Clean Out Your Refrigerator day and mine is an unwholesome nest of old stuff, I think I will clean it out after I get back from the gym. This afternoon I plan on going light fixture shopping.

Yesterday I
1) Got my hair cut. Took enough off that it will be donated.
2) Somehow lost one of my earrings, favorite pair, for pierced ear too. Very upset. I made a request to St Anthony but it hasn't shown up yet.
3) Made first batch of fruitcake.
4) Moved firewood.

Today I
1) Made a large pot of leek and potato soup. That was our lunch and 2 quarts for the freezer.
2) Went for a visit to my friend with the fabulous vegetable garden. Just before I left we went to the garden and she pulled white turnips that I want to pickle following a recipe in a book I'm going to review.
2A) Stupidly managed to delete the images of pulling turnips when I was transferring them from card to computer.
3) Mowed the lawn with the bagger on the machine, cutting grass and shredding leaves. Clogged up very quickly so I had to keep taking bagger off, dump in a tub, repeat, repeat. Had to go over the lawn twice to really clean it up. Looks good. Now I need to do the back. Maybe tomorrow.
4) Made second batch of fruitcake. Actually in the oven, to come out in about an hour.

BTW - I realize I'm overshooting the suggested Three Things. is it O.K. to list more?

C catapault Post whatever you wish. Sometimes I only have one thing that I post. Other times, I'll have a list. I like reading what people are doing. I hope you can find your earring. Good luck. Wow, how long was your hair? One of my GFs gets her hair cut and she has donated hair several times now.

Dinner went well last night. The couple is very nice and we had a good time. Whew!
  • Breakfast for the girls and I'm sitting back here with my morning coffee
  • We're going back up to the place that sells unfinished furniture this morning
  • I'll spend the afternoon putting more books and cookbooks in the shed. I'm going to wash windows in there, too, and do some cleaning. The rug was delivered, but we're not going to put it down until the sofa gets here next Saturday.

Winchester Winchester said "We're going out to dinner with a couple who Rick knows from his work. She retired early and he is still working. Rick knows them quite well and he really likes them. I don't know them and so I'm really nervous. I don't like meeting new people and I don't like having to come up with small talk. Add to that that we're going to a restaurant that has really loud music all the time; I can't hear well over background noise anymore. I would have just as soon had them come to our house for dinner and drinks. I would have gladly cooked; Rick says that I feel more in control in my kitchen. Maybe that's true."

This surprises me, Pam. After you retire I bet you'll be meeting all sorts of different people, maybe join a book club, etc.
It will be your time:hugs::sunshine:.

Great day yesterday. I picked up a overly expensive but perfect light fixture and a thrift store mirror that will be perfect. The son is coming over this morning to help with some bathroom construction stuff that requires two sets of hands or more height than I have (his 6’2 to my 5’0). I am also having him move my old recliner since my new power one arrives on Wednesday.

Hope you have succeeded in lowering your pains. Take it easy Mia and take care. :vibes:

Arranged a visit next Tuesday by curtain merchants to measure my living room windows and estimate their price to install new "roller" curtains.

Arranged a date with my building's attendants to take down my old curtains which will be replaced by new ones.
Arranged in a album the photos of my newly born twin great grandsons recently sent to me from France by Post Office service. The photos have joined those of their dad when he was 3 years old.

Mia6 Mia6 The longest I've ever had my hair - I could hold my arm straight out from my shoulder and have the unbraided hair spilling out of my fist. Before it was cut this time I think it would have been longer than halfway between my elbow and my shoulder. I always wore it brushed back and in a braid, or in a pony tail that was braided. My hair is now a little longer than chin length in a classic bob. Hides my ear lobes where the missing earring would be. With everything I'm trying to do to keep up with things while Himself continues to heal I just do not have time to deal with long hair.

Today I
1) drove Himself to computer club meeting. Nice for him to get out and socialize. I did some shopping at Walmart and Costco. Went back and picked him up. Stopped at China Moon and got take out - wonton soup for him, hot and sour soup for me, pork fried rice for both of us, shrimp with lobster sauce for him, kung pao chicken for me, and splurged with egg rolls. Have rice and entree leftovers for tomorrow's lunch
2) After lunch I mowed wind-collected leaves. Used the shredded leaves to pack the last cannas and the elephant ears for their winter sleep. All Done! Then mowed lawn grass-and-leaves. Dumped full mower bags in the compost bin near the house (which is now completely full of shredded leaves and grass clippings, nicely mixed) and dumped 4 additional mower bags worth under the banana tarp cover extensions. Wish the mower collection bag did not fill quite so rapidly. There's more leaf covered lawn to do.
3) Trying to decide if I have the energy to bake the third-and-last batch of fruitcake this evening. I should. But I really don't feel like it.

My son and I were done with bathroom tasks before noon and temps were in the 40’s so so I decided it was a good day to get the Christmas light up. Checked them out, everything lit , spent 40 minutes getting them up on the house and then discovered that half the string will no longer light. Haven’t decided if I will buy new lights or just leave them. Finished up the day with some Christmas gift ordering.

golondrina golondrina Your grandsons are simply adorable! Kudos! I bet you're really proud of your grand-babies!

I think we're done buying shed furniture; I hope we are. Rick is doing some work in the basement and, once he's finished, I'll start painting and staining the table and chairs. I could still use a table light; I'm bringing home my pole light and cat light when I retire. The fridge will come home then, too. We bought new bed pillows and a new electric blanket last night; the blanket is for the shed.

I was going to go out to the shed last night to watch a movie, but Rick has me kind of freaked out about going out there after dark; the blinds for the shed haven't come in yet and he doesn't like the idea of being out there with no window blinds; once it gets dark, you can see everything. I stayed in the house.
  • Breakfast for the girls and I'm sitting back here with my morning coffee. Rick stripped the bed down and put the sheets in the washer. I'll need to scoop boxes in a few minutes.
  • I have two loads of laundry to do this morning (not including the sheets)
  • I took butter and cream cheese out of the fridge to soften, so I can make pumpkin bars with orange-cream cheese frosting. I don't like cream cheese, but the orange tang hides the taste of the cream cheese and I can eat them. I'll do a double batch and take a bunch into work tomorrow morning.
  • Visit with Rick's mom tonight. We'll take up some pumpkin bars so she has something to munch on. She has a new roommate, but we know nothing about her. I'm always hesitant to take snacks to her roommates until I know whether they can eat things like that.

Pierre and John say "Thank you Winchester and Mia." It is such a joy to see them looking so well because they had a dramatic birth by Cesarean operation when their mum underwent an operation for peritonitis when seven months pregnant.
