Relieved that Peter and James are done with the hauls to Brockton. I know, “border issue”, but I’m still glad they don’t have to do that drive with winter approaching. Just hope James gets his license this week.
Contradictory reports on what to expect for weather. One source says below zero in Boston, another says low 20’s.
We cleaned up leaves here yesterday. I mowed the front and back, Ron did leaf blowing and raking. I’m putting the leaves in the gardens for mulch.
Seeing a couple of baleful-looking squash in the refrig, I made a quiche last night and Ron made a salad. We didn’t finish supper until 8:30; how continental of us.
It being so late, we watched a fine Prime special on the music of Leonard Cohen. The lyrics and the adulation went over my head, but the music direction was topnotch, so I still enjoyed it.
I’m literal, Ron is metaphorical and as I’ve written before, he “gets” poetry; sometimes he’s even able to explain it to me.
Yesterday mowed the back at Edgewater and redid the front.
Ron made tomato soup and eggs for supper!
Went below freezing last night.
Had much too long phone conversations yesterday about our health insurance coverage through Cal with a couple of incompetents at via Benefits. Finally got a straight answer from Andrea. We’re keeping our medical plans. I switched Ron’s Part D, since the premiums for his current plan are doubling in 2020.
There’s been a shortage of the senior flu vaccine, so we were happy to find it today at the Stop & Shop Pharmacy. Glad to see Marty back in action as well as our “behind the counter” friends Pat and Bonnie!
Ron did laundry, turned off the outdoor spigots and disconnected the last two hoses.
I drained the outdoor shower and removed the valve.
I made tortellini and stir fry for lunch, along with leftover salad.
I got to drive Robert to his neurologist for a routine appointment. Intended to mow their front lawn, and did, but it took twice as long as it should have because of the volume of leaves. Had to abandon it halfway through to drive Robert, but finished it when we got back to Edgewater.
Not much into Halloween decorating this year, but fortunately, others were. I took off around 7:15 to tour a couple of neighborhoods. The Bartletts at SPE had the most spectacular displays: fantastic! We had about 20 kids; plenty of leftover candy for us.
We did food shopping today. Ron worked on the compost; I picked up more starter.
We also pounded in more rebar and attached the wisteria trellises.
