Sunny and pleasant today after a shower this morning.
Goal was 4900 steps. With Ron’s encouragement and company, ended up at over 6,200. We went around the neighborhood. I’m where I should be at 19 days (5,800). I’d lost count last weekend when my phone ran out of charge.
Ron set up the hoses. Seems to be a problem with the spigot in the back, but the front is okay.
I drove Peter to Cormier’s to pick up his car. He says it’s running much better now.
Did more raking in the front: side garden, beds in front of the house. Put the tonneau cover back on.
Picked Peter up from Cormier’s. We loaded the prunings but it was too much for the transfer station, so we did three trips to All Cape Recycling. Peter and I made a good team so it wasn’t that hard, and the people who run the place are easy to get along with.
The rest of the day is pretty much a blur. It started raining shortly after we finished, so I did the rest of my walking in front of the TV.
Ron and I did the transfer station run yesterday. I made custard with the last of the milk that was two weeks beyond “Used By” date.
I raked out the hydrangeas at the top of the driveway.
Ron went shopping for OTC meds and fruit for smoothies. He sawed off some holly limbs for Peter as well.
I am taking savage pleasure in the 100% loss of stock market earnings since Trump took office: the DJIA closed today at 19,174 vs. 19,732. I don’t suppose that’ll shut his followers up for long, though.
We had lunch at Not Your Average Joe’s today using my birthday discount, and treated our digestive systems well, with salads and spaghetti squash bolognese.
We walked to Target and back, signed up for the Red Circle and got 15% off our purchases on the spot, thanks to the manager. The cashier gave us misinformation, but I insisted on getting our discount. Ron was not pleased, kept wanting to hurry me along; tough, I saved $8.
Afterwards, we did a walk in Hyannis. Veterans Park and Lewis Bay.
