Billy installed the light in the second bedroom, and Ron is pleased.
Ron installed a second shelf in the new room closet and patched the hole in the attic floor.
I attended a meeting of the Mashpee Introverts and am still waiting for them to add me to their FB page.
After the Introverts, I drove to Dennis, intending to stand out with the M2R group there, but no one showed up. I messaged Paul and the group leader. Paul offered no explanation, and I haven’t heard anything else.
By good fortune, I stumbled onto a craft fair at the Dennis Senior Center and was entranced by a display of stone and silver jewelry.
I took photos of 9 necklaces and sent them to Emme to pick for her birthday. She liked the pendant style made from a blue bowling ball!
The vendor let me take the necklace with me along with a stamped, self-addressed envelope. She said this has worked out well for her, since she doesn’t want to deal with credit cards or PayPal! I mailed her check today.
Today, we dropped off Bonnie’s card and birthday gift and mailed Ella’s birthday cash and card. February is a big month for birthdays: two more to go, Mike’s wife and daughter.
Did a shop at S&S and made out quite well with used produce, as well as some sale items, including veg burgers.
We did the transfer station, changed the sheets and did 2 more loads of laundry and are spending the rest of the afternoon filling out forms for the attorney.
We, mostly Ron, managed to get a new belt installed on the dryer. We were able to do a big load, and it worked great.
I made several ridiculous mistakes, for which I apologized. My one good suggestion – to take the door off the front panel – did lighten the panel enough that I was able to mount it on the miserable, stupid clips at the bottom of the machine.
We also got our shipment of furnace filters.
Trying to learn more about football lineups, positions and strategies.
Fixed a couple of bugs in MRS Administration. Getting embarrassing.
Applied for a job with the City of Seattle. Paid a bill. Inquired about the credits I was supposed to receive from a couple of online vendors.
After “Fit and Strong”, we enjoyed a nice meal and pleasant company at the First Congregational Church last evening. Stopped at the packie on Palmer Ave. for a beer tasting. Ron found a Cape Cod Beer stout to his liking.
Ordered a ceiling light for Ron from Ferguson. Got 10% off.
Ron cut out a piece of the attic floor which should be close to where the fixture will be mounted.
Egg salad for lunch.
We picked up my guitar from Fran: beautiful! I can play it.
Dryer died on the second load around 7:30. Decided it was too late to go to a laundromat, so hung up the wash instead. Ron promised to add more clothesline this weekend.
“I can say—after interviewing several of them over the years—that many of us have trouble feeling completely comfortable wherever we are—no matter how welcomed we may be. At times our discomfort can manifest in distancing, indifference, or even rudeness, but we usually don’t intend to insult anybody. We just seem to have an internalized nomadic notion that we don’t belong anywhere in particular. Even when we do settle somewhere we often work our asses off to prove our worthiness—just in case anyone gets any ideas about putting us back up for adoption.”
