Pruned the daylilies, as planned. Did a little watering.
Stripped beds, did laundry, made beds.
Made chili and corn bread. Cooked the corn bread on the grill; ran out of gas but there was enough heat to finish it; nicely, too.
Went to Elana’s ice cream social at Polar Cave, and on the way home picked up a full tank of propane at Peter’s; he left it on the steps for us, which helped. Ron got it connected.
Went to Shaw’s for bagels and some well-priced cheese. Used the Ace $5 coupon at Eastman’s towards a valve for the outdoor shower. Nasty salesperson, spoke with the manager about him, also told him I didn’t appreciate being followed around. He argued with me, didn’t “get it”, so I gave up.
Even though the salespeople annoy me, I would spend a fortune in their gorgeous kitchenware section if I had money. So many beautiful things!
Ron attached the valve. Haven’t tried it yet. Felt like I was running the whole day from 9:30 on.
Talked with Ron about making a room or an ADU for Cathy. Hoping her relatives will man up and help her, but if they don’t, this might work. Too bad we’re not rich….
We attended a job fair “for mature workers” at the “Cape and Islands Career Center” yesterday and had an hour+ long meeting with our new insurance agent.
Good rain last night, maybe an inch.
Kitchen has been smelling “off”; turns out, garlic had spoiled. I’d stored it in an airless container. Kitchen’s better now that it’s aired out.
We splurged at Amie Bakery yesterday. I bought four pastries and a rum/maple syrup cocktail infused with cardamom for Ron.
Also bought “Amie Bakery” hot cup holders for Em and Ami.
Good customer service call this morning with T-Mobile. Saved us $19.76.
Cleaned out frig. Ron cleaned the freezer. Would be nice if that makes us closer to godliness.
We picked up free “Impossible” Whoppers at BK in Falmouth and drove Robert home afterwards. The Whoppers were a Tuesday gift from t-Mobile. Also stopped at Cumby so Robert could get his refreshments and Ron could fill the gas can for the lawn mower.
Surprised to find so many beautiful flowers in the gardens this week.
I took the horrid Avanade test this morning. Not what I expected, very little coding, a lot of questions about Patterns and SCRUM. Bias toward big company dev shops, which in retrospect makes a ton of sense.
We seem to be in good hands for our insurance renewals.
Skipped political meetings this week. Upset that David Weeden seemed to endorse Habitat. Will discuss with him at his “meet and greet”.
Intestinal distress last night. Ate too much too soon before trying to get to sleep. Up early today.
Found a whole bag of dried blueberries. Plumped up half and made muesli this morning for breakfast. Really, really good.
Forget to take meds one day this week, not sure which.
Received TMobile SIM cards yesterday.
Mowed back and front lawns yesterday. Ron has been working on the shower.
