We had rain--plenty of rain. Thank goodness! It's been dry for a couple weeks or more in this area, and the gardens were beginning to suffer. It was so pleasant to sit on the porch and watch it storm, then come inside to make popcorn and watch a movie, something we haven't done in quite a while.
Of course rain means the grass is growing so Larry is trying to catch up while at the same time doing some repairs on his truck and getting our late cucumbers in the ground. We're still sorting things from the flea market too, seems to be a task that is never-ending.
I've been painting again. A couple small tables, a washbowl stand, magazine rack--small things that needed to be done, and will make some space in the workroom which as usual is way overcrowded. Will I ever get through the backlog? I am determined to do so, but it's going to take several months.
A couple came by to look at our place. Larry had told them we were thinking of selling. It made me feel strange, I can tell you! I know we will need to move sometime in the next few years and I've been looking at places online but to actually have someone come looking makes it more real than I want right now. I guess I was a little discouraging to this couple, but I need time to get some cleaning out done before I'm ready to say yes, it's for sale. Change in the wind.
Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge, a long-overdue job. I don't think anyone enjoys that! But it made me get some things fixed to eat that would need to be tossed soon. I made stuffed peppers, cabbage, watermelon and kiwi for dinner, the first dinner I've cooked all week. I will be glad to get back to something like a routine but it will be another week before that happens.
And I got back to work on eBay. I had my store on vacation for two weeks since I knew I was going to be away most of the time, and as soon as I turned it back on I had sales. A good thing! I got some new things listed too.
So, nothing exciting to report, just life as usual.
