Good morning, Dear Ones! Happy Monday! 💗
Election results are still being tabulated, the United States of America is in chaos, and her citizens (and people around the globe) are in a complete uproar, but I stand firm on my faith in God and have no doubt that everything will get sorted out soon enough and that we are all in for some HUGE surprises! I can't wait to see how it all plays out! 💖🤍💙
How was your week and weekend?
Things have been going along pretty good here. I worked my usual Monday, but ended up working Friday instead of Saturday, as someone needed to be at the nature center while the guys did a prescribed burn on the east side of the park. It was nice having Saturday and Sunday off together.
We got my husband's new captioned phone set up on Tuesday. The technician never did show up (turns out he was home sick), so the people at Tel Caps walked me through the process over the phone and we got it done. He can now converse with people over the phone by reading what they're saying on his end. It should make life a lot simpler for him.
The rest of the week was spent working around the place and running errands. We paid the taxes this week and got the tires on the car rotated and balanced. It's needed doing for quite some time, but the automotive section at Walmart has been closed due to COVID. I'm glad they're finally open again.
I've been working in the Van Gogh room again this weekend and have it completely torn apart. My original goal was to pull out Christmas stuff that was in the closet, but it's turned into a full-fledge exercise in deep-cleaning, de-cluttering, and purging. I'm even sorting through program boxes and getting rid of the excess stuff. I'm sick of junk and that's all there is to it! 😠
Okay...I need to get on with it. It's almost time to leave for work. Let's get started on this week's post...shall we?
