Saturday, October 21, 2023, MN

When I got back home on Monday, I was looking forward to an uneventful week but it ended up being busy, busy, busy with three trips to Ben’s house and selling the canoe, helping out with the food truck, and an afternoon with the grandkids.  For their birthday this year, I booked a session at Genevieve’s Art Studio for Thursday afternoon.  We all did a glass fusing project and they really got into using the different tools and selecting the materials for their projects.  Camille and Norah both made Christmas gifts and Charlotte made something for her room. They all enjoyed the afternoon and said they would like to do it again.   I will post pictures when I get them back after being fired.

After our art class, we stopped at a pumpkin patch and I let them pick out pumpkins.  I ended up saving $12, as the person at the checkout kept ringing them up wrong and after three tries, I just gave up on it and accepted what she charged me.  It’s pretty bad when the customer tries to pay the correct amount and even with a calculator, she could ring up 6 items correctly.

I volunteered to help my friend Deb to move her sister into an apartment in our building yesterday.  Lisa has been living in a rented room at a friend’s home in North Minneapolis.   Deb’s daughter Chelsea had a truck and they originally thought they could do it all in in that but it was a good thing we had my car.  She had a lot of stuff but we got most of it moved and now all she has to do is go back there and do some cleanup.  I went to bed early, feeling exhausted, but sleep would not come until 1:30 this morning.  Dang!

Joey and I walked the nature path behind the ice garden today and it was a beautiful walk.

Such a beautiful space right in the middle of the city.

Lots of colors and a few flowers that are holding on.
