Shipped or not? – I buy stuff on-line. Almost always I get an email that says it shipped. I ordered something last Sunday. Tuesday I received the email. As of today, it still hasn’t been “really shipped.” What’s that all about? It’s been sitting in a warehouse for almost a week waiting for a pick-up? (There must be a pick-up line joke that would fit this!)
Appliances again! — If you’ve followed me for a while you know I go through appliances. They always die young. If a refrigerator has a life span of 8 to 10 years, mine goes at 6. Lost my washing machine two months ago at less than 10 years. Yesterday the dishwasher died. It’s 5 years old. And yes, it was full of dishes. The only humor (possibly) is that I was so annoyed I used my outside gloves to wash the dishes instead of my pristine “dish washing” gloves. At least I don’t have chapped hands.
What’s it about anything moved? – We brought in the cushions from our screened porch furniture for the winter. We laid them out in a spare bedroom to ensure they are completely dry before we bag them. We also washed the awning and draped that to dry too. The cats are over the moon! Hazel has slept on almost every spot on the awning and I’m noticing cat hair fluffs on the cushions too. Anything moved has to be re-christened! Gotta love cats!
For all you lovely readers who follow and care – My sister-in-law (at age 86) had her shoulder replacement surgery this past week and she’s doing wonderful. Most of her complaints were from the effects of the anesthesia and medications. The incision is smaller than you would think. Her friend (?) told her that the docs would “filet” her arm but that wasn’t the case. Looks like they slipped it in with minimal damage. She has a way to go but the worst part is over. Thank you for your prayers.
It’s so anticlimactic – I have a (very bad) picture of the finished bathroom floor. It’s lighter than it looks in this picture but you get the idea. It’s a 5×5 room and there is no view overlooking a park. We were able to save the wallpaper (at least for now) and everything worked out well including the taller toilet. Best of all WE LOVE IT! The floor is a tile that looks like polished marble (without all the fussy care) and it brings light into the room. All’s well that ends well.
So how was your week?
