Here is my labor of love regarding our girls trip in mid-March right as the COVID-19 began to unravel. I hope you enjoy. You have most likely seen all the photos before if you have read my blog about that time.
Well, this has been a wonderful weekend. I did a bit of cleaning yesterday and laundry. And then we headed out to Lowe’s to pick out a WHITE TOILET to replace the gold one in the bathroom. And yes, I still have a gold tub but it’s now behind a shower curtain. :=)
Let me tell you. EVERYONE WAS OUT YESTERDAY in Mount Juliet! Look at this! Traffic backed up all the way to the interstate. There were also some neighborhood family get togethers I saw in our neighborhood with 8 or so car loads around. And so I’m thinking that about 2 weeks from now the numbers of COVID are going to explode and we’ll all be back in lockdown again. People are going wild. It’s easy to think things are normal but they are really NOT.
And look at LOWE’s
Everyone lined up yesterday all the way around to the side of the building at Lowe’s. Of course doing their best to social distance, sort of.
So we get in there and when you first go up and look at the toilets – they just all look alike. LOL
Then I saw some were elongated seats and some were round. Elongated made them stick out a couple more inches and I didn’t want it to take up extra room. So I went with round. Most all of them had the potty seat that closes really slow and doesn’t slam! That is nice, lol. But mostly they still all looked the same. So we picked out this one.
And George says “Look it comes with a biscuit”. If you look at the label at the bottom of the photo it says “white” and “biscuit”.
So off we go to the car, toting a toilet on our cart bed. LOL. It’s kindof embarrassing toting a toilet through a store. But, I am not sure people noticed. Everyone was busy watching to see who had on masks or just going after their own agenda’d items.
Then we went to Aldi’s to get a few things for “Appetizer’s” for when Katy and Cody arrive. What a busy week ahead. Plumbers, roofers, and Katy and Cody all on top of working! And we get to see Mom today.
Katy and Cody are staying with his Mom and Dad but Findlay is staying with us. So George went ahead and planned all the work this week. It won’t impact the kitchen so we should be good.
Once home, I had worked up an appetite. I fixed a ham sandwich made in the pan with ham and Asagio cheese melted in and also spinach leaves.
And I added some chili fritos into the sandwich also.
The kitchen looked like a “terror” so I set into cleaning and rebooted dishwasher and washed the big pans up from the night before.
It’s always nice to get the kitchen clean.
Meanwhile, George was working on those final tree trunks from the big bad storm last week. He pulled the RAV4 around and loaded the backend of it with the logs and then drove them up to the front. Way to go!
I went to wrap Mom’s gifts and I guess I have used all of my nice big flowery gift sacks. I thought we had plenty so we’ll have to stop and get a bag. We had to stop for something else anyway so no biggie.
Also my nails look a bit better than yesterday.
Worked on laundry and took care of doggies and before I knew it, it was dinner time already. George had fixed beef stew.
We are VERY VERY close -like maybe 2 or 3 shows away from finishing Ozark. We will be anxiously awaiting the next season! So we’ll have to pick a new one. However, “Dead to Me” is also pretty good and it’s back out now.
As usual, I didn’t get too far on the To Do list this weekend. I’ll blame it on the video creation.
Just in looking at the all the details – there are some things I need to add to my list. I want to completely redo my YouTube – maybe even another channel and connect it to the blog but need to look at copyright content and things like that. I want to do everything right. But I want the YouTube to be my Blog’s YouTube it will be an extension of the blog – eventually.
I’m thinking of also redoing the blog’s logo to something a bit different. Similar but different. Before I do all that. We’ll see how it goes. I have a vision. I’m working toward it, as best as I can.
So – busy week ahead and headed to see Mom shortly. Be back soon! Should be an interesting week.
And today I leave you with a pic of Findlay’s Bed Head. Just got a text from Katy that said “Findlay gets BedHead too” (See blog entry from – I think two days ago). This little cutie gets to come see her Grandma!
And I wish all the Mother’s out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy your day.
