Chilly Monday

It is chillier this morning. I think the thermometer said 46 degrees. I went out and swept leaves off the carport a little bit ago. Bob came over for coffee and coffeecake this morning. I made the coffeecake for church yesterday morning but some of it was left so I brought it home and invited him over for coffee this morning and we ate some more of the coffeecake. It was still very good.

I heard from my daughter by e-mail this morning. She is pleased I have decided to go to Hawaii to be with Scott for the Thanksgiving holiday. She will buy the ticket this week. I guess the boys will reimburse her for part of it. I don't think she and John are going to pay for it alone but I don't know. Anyhow now I can make plans.

Before I leave next month, I will help Bob move to the apartment. As soon as the landlord puts down new carpet and vinyl we can begin. The storage unit adjoining the apartment across from mine is for him. It is empty and we would like to start moving the stuff out of his storage unit across the street into the one in front of Marilyn's apartment. I have my air compressor and pressure washer in there and I think there will be room for them in that storage unit too. Next we should move the kitchen stuff. That will be a big job. The rest will be relatively easy.

Bobby and Bob's son, Dennis, will help with the furniture. Then I will help him hang curtains and blinds at the front double windows. He will have to shop for dining furniture. Hopefully he can find some used. All he needs or has room for is a table and chairs. I told him he could use my dining room for his family Thanksgiving dinner. I will be in Hawaii and will not be using it. Whether he will or not is up to him and whether he finds a dining set by that time.

But first things first. Today he has an ultra sound test. Tomorrow is his sister's funeral.

Margie...I'm so happy for you. You will have so many things to tell us about your trip. I'd say your kids are pretty special.
Don't work to hard moving want to be feeling good for your trip.

Oh I will take it easy, Balisha. I am so fortunate to have lots of energy.

Yes, my kids are very special. I think so anyhow!
