Thursday - Cloudy, coolish, but muggy
A busy day!
I woke up when F got up so I could say goodbye, then I tried to snooze for a while. I was a tad worried that K would come looking for me, so even though I tried to snooze longer, I really didn’t manage much. Finally I got up and dressed around 8 am as I watched the news on TV. I went down and had breakfast around 9 am.
After my break, I did some laundry and hung it up in the garage on the second floor. I was coming in when I heard a vehicle come into the parking space. I thought it was my husband, but it was his niece and her baby. I invited her into the house and let K know she was there. I hightailed it upstairs for a while, but did come down near the end of her visit to be friendly.
And what was I doing? Moving boxes, tidying up and doing all manner of things in our rooms upstairs. I did most of it in the part that I’m using as my computer room, but did a bit in the bedroom area too. I packed a few things away, tossed two bags of garbage and also found a missing earring that I feared I would never see again. Unfortunately it is for pierced ears and mine have grown over so I likely won’t ever wear it! There’s a lot more to do of course, but the good thing is that I am writing this from F’s old desk while F sleeps in the other room. I can sit in here, write and watch TV quietly and not feel guilty for keeping him up.
I took a break around 12:30 for lunch. I was having a big salad with sliced chicken on it, I wasn’t sure about K. I asked if she’d like something and gave her a smaller bowl with some. We ate in the living room and she seemed to like it. I did the dishes afterwards and went back to work.
I came upstairs and brought the vacuum and got up a lot of the old dust. The best thing would have been if we’d been able to do that before we moved in, but F didn’t think of it before he started to take boxes over. Still, it looks much better in places now. I still have too many clothes and there are many stacks of “things”, but I can use the desk and the floor looks cleaner and easier to walk around in.
F came home around 5:30 I think. He was tired but he suggested a place for dinner and it was okay. We went to MokuMoku, thinking it had wifi, but it didn’t. Still, we had a good meal. I tried a tomato based pasta, hope it wasn’t a big mistake, and F had the one that I usually have with salmon and shrimp. We both enjoyed them.
We went to McDonald for coffee and wifi, only to find out that their wifi was very spotty. I had more luck with the wifi in the washroom than I did outside of it.
We went to MaxValu and picked up a few things for K’s dinner and for my lunch tomorrow. I got enough to share with K if she wants some of it. We came back to the house and I actually took my shower before F since he was listening to a podcast and I wanted to be done before 11pm.
And that was my day! I was surprisingly busy, but it felt rather good to get so much stuff done. I know we have a lot to do up here, but a start has been made, and that was good.
Tomorrow I really need to get working on my Journal column. I have a few ideas for it, but I need to get them down on paper/screen! Come back later and see what my Friday is like. Until tomorrow…..
