asked M to come down
while I started breakfast
and there were no plates
so I started dishes
and went back to making breakfast
when needed adding chopped spinach and chopped tomato
and got the dishes done.
dragged up the back carpet and put it on the front porch
and used the dishwater to wash it
and rinsed it.. hung it on the dogs fence to dry.
mike started fussing with the front door screen
and he found the bottom was torn,
so I said why don't you replace it.
and cleared off the table on the porch
and said your brother's toolbox has the screen tool
so he went looking for it and i got the screen roll.
he started in on it and when he started to be frustrated
was able say that's going well
how'd you learn that
it was in the directions.
directions? hehe they were so good he tossed them.
the tool was great.
I'd done them with out the roller
and it was a hundred times harder.
we got the first one almost done
with him doing most of the work
and I got the other one that needed repair
oh no! Can't do that! yes we can!
and we started, in one way it was harder with added bits
but it went smoother once we figured out
which way to aim the roller.
I now have a bunch of aluminium screen to experiment with
it will be good for holes in pots too.
we brought the trestle and loom over
susan was there-showing her friend around?
it seemed suspicious. why was she there?
think it was an I told you it was this bad tour.
I cleaned up the kitchen a bit and the dining table
where mom did her potting.
emptied the kitchen garbage.
then when Mike tried helping mom walk,
she did poorly think her lack of stretches and
range of motion is showing in her lack of coordination.
I started sweeping off the deck
dad was supposed to do it this spring.
mom was the gardener-maintenence so that's gone.
it was amazing how much dirt there was
and I ended up shoveling and raking.
put the broken things in a bag and gathered
up the moldy rugs to go into the garbage too.
weeded the stairs austin and I made.
the deck will probably need replacing soon
they have plastic menards rugs going across to the door
and the boards have rotted from it- we left the rugs off
hoping they will dry a bit.
the plastic lumber would be better than wood back there.
tomorrow we will put the big pile of needles and stuff
in a wheel barrow behind the lawn tractor
and go put it in the compost.
found out dad had trashed both of their wheel barrows.
the carcasses are probably back by the quansit hut.
we went to walmart for buns and 1/2&1/2
and I looked at the halloween stuff
not much I wanted to buy there.
lost him for a bit and told the person up front
I was there for the husband exchange but
I didn't see anyone I'd like any better
& went back to find him near the fabrics.
the cashiers have been cut back drastically
they have 2 corrals of do it you self check outs now.
mike made juicy lucy's for the first time.yum.
had the binnies all on the cat perch
so snorrie got up and sat in them
he started in on playing and i saved the bunnies instead of taking picture.
