This week was a catch up week after enjoying time with family in the North. It will be interesting to see (for me) what I can remember.
Cut the grass and put some of the clippings around the blackberry bush and on the soil that's waiting for new seed.
Turned and put paper in the compost box.
Swept the patio and used the fallen leaves for compost.
Re trimmed the blackberry bush.
Scrubbed the powder room and cleaned the master bathroom.
Washed all the mirrors and glass framed pictures as well as the sliding door into the garden. Today I will finish the windows downstairs.
Went to the meat store for a roast and ground beef. The ground beef will become a meatloaf and meatballs. The roast was cooked and devoured by my daughter and her family ( and me) last night.
Rearranged fall decorations putting the arrangement I made in the powder room and adding cute Halloween towels for the grandchildren's benefit. I also have two Halloween towels on the oven door. I'm not a big fan of Halloween so not much interest goes into decorating for it. I was traumatized when the kids were little because I had a very difficult time coming up with costume ideas. That was enough to block the day from my mind.
Posted two boxes.
Had a couple of conversations with vendors. I cancelled a credit card at a popular 'undies' store because they didn't send me a bill then I got charged with a $25.00 fee for non payment and interest. They removed the charge but not the interest. I don't need the drama in my life so I cancelled. Guess that can't happen again.
Did two loads of laundry.
Watched the two year old for a bit. She redesigned my patio with colored chalk.
Things To Be Thankful For
A warm home.
A producing garden.
A family that loves me.
A pup that follows me around when she's not busy sleeping.
Warmer weather than the North!
Stay safe and enjoy the day.
