Good morning, Dear One! It's Monday! 💗
How are you? How was your week and weekend?
My week here was good. I accomplished much more than I expected to and was able to cross several small jobs off my to-do list. The main thing I accomplished was deep-cleaning the kitchen. It wasn't even on my current to-do list, but the mood struck and I jumped on it! It took the better part of three full days to finish it, but it was worth it. I took out tons of trash and things to be donated and recycled. Everything looks and feels so much better now and, soon, it will be time to decorate for fall! Yeah!!!
I hit the ground with my feet running this morning. I have sour dough bread rising in a bowl on the counter, have done three loads of laundry, washed and rehung curtains, and have taken care of quite a bit of business on the phone.
I'm expecting a tow truck to arrive soon. My car has been down since April. With everything happening with John and him being home on hospice, the car being broke down wasn't even on my list of priorities. By the time it was, my mechanic at the vo-tech in Lamar was out of school for the summer. I would have to wait.
I finally got a hold of the mechanic this morning. School is back in session and, even though it will still be a few days before the boys are certified to work in the shop, the mechanic said to go ahead and get it down there and they will get started on it as soon as possible. When the tow truck arrives, my car will finally be on the road to recovery! Praise the Lord!
Since I've been working inside so much this week, I didn't even think about taking pictures. I did take a picture of the birdfeeder that I got for my birthday after filling it, so I will post that.
And this one of one of the pretty cups I received for my birthday, as well..
