This past weekend there was more activity in my neighborhood than I have seen in at least three years. Some people were moving out and others moving in. There were some bringing in new furniture. Chain saws were buzzing doing some trimming and cutting down shrubs and trees that needed care. Lawns were mowed and trimmed and fallen leaves were removed. Some were adding porches to their homes, some were fencing in their backyards and some putting on a new roof.
My son-in-law and I got some pruning done in my yard and he fixed a water leak that I had recently discovered. I am so thankful he was able to take care of the leak and I did not have to hire a plumber. Good reliable plumbers are difficult to find in my area and if we do find one they are very expensive.
Little Chancy Man had his 15th birthday yesterday. We spent time outside walking and we played fetch. He slept while I worked inside.
I am still culling and getting windows and doors winterized. I have filled the trunk of the car with boxes of things to donate. Now if I can remember to take them to the donation drop off on my next outing. The cooler weather has really put me in a mood to get things done.
It amazes me how much has accumulated in my home that I never use and never will but someone else can. There is one more closet I need to clear out, but there are things stored in it that do not belong to me and I don’t know when the people will come to get them. There is one item too heavy for me to move but I am hoping to be able to work around it. It just feels great to be able to get done what I have so far.
This morning I baked biscuits and put them in the freezer. I will soon bake cornbread to put in the freezer. It is nice to be able to go to the freezer and grab a biscuit or a slice of cornbread and heat it up when I want it. I am not looking forward to the cold of winter but I do look forward to having homemade soup, stew and other yummy foods I don’t eat other times of the year. I do not enjoy cooking so when I do cook some things I prepare enough of them for the freezer so I don’t have to cook often.
Now when the election has come and gone and all the mud slinging politics is over I will be totally thrilled.
Have a great day everyone and thank you for stopping by. Hugs and blessings, Mags.
