Deck Verses Not Deck Time, End Tables, and Class Reunion
Tuesday morning I started coffee
on the deck,
however, it was a tad cooler
than I prefer, so Lily and I came
in. Lily and I curled up, with
a throw, laptop and TV.
Don't we look so comfy?
The past few days have been easy on
me, after my time fighting the ivy vines.
Day after that, I washed up some dishes,
and hung out on the deck for a bit.
Dude came and cut the yard, so I did have
to get out and pick up some limbs
and branches I was planning on
getting done. I was to worn out
after the ivy, I planned on doing
it the next day anyway, but was going
to wait till later cause I thought
that Dude would come later in the week.
I was wrong, heard the mower start
which made me have to run out
and do it, barefooted, which was
not a good idea, I was on the back
of the fenced yard where pinecones and
needles are. OUCH.....I stepped
on a pinecone and bruised the bottom
of my foot.
Anyway, yard looks good.
Next day, I got some laundry
done. some clothes hung up,
Floors vac'd. Living room cleaned
up. Litter boxes emptied and scrubbed.
A few Hosta and some Vinca Vine
dug up. Headed to Ray's, older
brother. He had text earlier wanting
to know if I had Hosta. So, I delivered
him some along with Hummingbird Vine,
and Four O'clock seeds.
Although, I don't care to do
Wally World runs anymore.
I needed somethings. Since I was going
to be at Ray's, near the good Wally World,
I went there.
they are redoing and moving things
at that store and the pharmacy type
things I needed were not out any longer.
That meant I had to go to the one
I don't like by my house.
I did get the things I needed.
Only I was tired when I got in but
I got a few more things done than
the day before.
Weeks ago, before I even painted
on Felicity's toy box I
decided to try something.
I spray painted two of my
crates, and set them up for
an end table.
When I moved I got rid of the
end tables I used and I have just been
trying to get something that is me, that
I like to work for me.
Since I am liking this so well,
I have two more to paint
and set up the same way for the
I have this sitting on a table
that belonged to my granny,
and I redone before I moved in.
I just love these colors and
the pearls make it rock.
If you were following back in 2018,
you might remember that I worked
at tracking down old classmates
for an upcoming
That was our 40th.
At that time the class reps mentioned
that as we are all aging and losing classmates
we prob did not need to wait ten years
With that being said, I have a DuPont
class of 1978, meeting for our
45th reunion this July.
I never attended reunions at the
beginning, they were having them every
5 yrs at that point.
I waited until the 25th before I went.
By that time they were every ten yrs.,
plus I figured that most the women were
looking older, maybe gained weight and the
guys were losing their hair. I did not feel like
I would be compared to anyone else.
After that, I did not attend another one.
No, I was not a class rep so it did not look
bad that I did not attend.
But I was called upon to help plan the
40th, I was retired and had time.
Apparently, that got me a ticket for
helping with the 45th.
Thanks for stopping in,
the decorating/redoing of the rooms i am working on is a slow go. i am not going to post any further pictures until it is done!!
I went to the first two class reunions and haven't been to one since.
Yesterday I got an invitation to my class reunion... we will be together at Pillnitz Castle in September.
I look forward to it :-)))
Class reunion? You know how long it's been since I graduated? SIXTY THREE years. And, no I won't go to another one mostly because I don't drive at night anymore.
It's fun to catch up with you and glad to hear you're being able right now to get things done.
