It’s been a busy, busy week and I was hoping for quiet relaxing days. There has been stuff going on here at my building like the monthly birthday party and the food shelf that I volunteer at.
Pat and Ben offered to cover the cost of having a ceiling fan installed in my bedroom as a birthday gift. I had the electrician install it on Tuesday afternoon and I think it has made it more comfortable for sleeping.
The twins had a soccer game on Wednesday night and it was nice to see them again. Their team is on a roll and they haven’t lost a game yet. Norah was really going for the goals and came really close once but not quite close enough.
I cleaned house for Ben and Jill on Thursday and, thanks to Deb for walking Joey in the afternoon, I was able to come home and have a little nap.
I finally got around to getting a few groceries on Friday and I made a stop at the garden center to get a few colorful annuals to put in the perennial garden.
Today is Lois’s birthday and I was invited to join the family to have dinner and celebrate with them this afternoon. Ben grilled red peppers, broccoli, and asparagus and that was served with a bowl of pasta Alfredo and it was absolutely delicious. It was a lovely afternoon.
We finally got some rain and I’m hoping it was enough to make a difference. We have had a long dry spell and there isn’t any more rain in the forecast for the next week. It actually cooled down and is about 65° now at 9:30. I will be leaving my windows open tonight.
