What I Did Today

Not long after I got up this morning, the mortgage officer called. Apparently it’s a regulation now that they have to compare our tax information to the information that the IRS has to make sure it matches. She had tried to get our tax…

Clean Up Days

My guys had to run errands in the Emerald City after EJ got out of work Friday afternoon so they got a late start and didn’t arrive back here until 11 p.m. They were extremely tired and glad to be home. As soon as…

Paint Memories

This morning I paid bills while I drank coffee and ate breakfast. Then I went outside to paint the garage. Well, first I had to scrape off the old paint. The garage is actually quite weatherbeaten so most of the old paint was already…

Here There Be Spiders

This morning after I drank coffee and ate breakfast, I went upstairs and mudded the drywall for a bit. I really don’t mind this task. It’s sort of fun. When I came downstairs, Danny asked to be let outside. I headed for the back…

Autumn Projects

  Yesterday morning EJ and I got another load of firewood from our friend RB’s place.  We just put the wood into the back of the pickup truck rather than try to pull the trailer home. Today’s wood was heavier–we took the lighter pieces…

Paint Memories

Today was laundry day. Usually EJ goes with me to help me, but he had to work six days this last week and I knew he was really tired, so I drank only ONE cup of coffee and then I loaded the dirty clothes…

The One With the Vision…

I was looking forward to working outside, maybe doing some weeding in both my garden and EJ’s garden. When I opened the door to go outside this morning, however, I was very surprised to see that it was raining. It was not a heavy…
