I’m so pleased at how much the two of us old people have done. Until today we have moved virtually everything in our house by ourselves, besides the help from Alicia getting it ready to stage for showing. I never could have done this before the medication the neurologist gave me for my back. Had we decided to do this three months ago, I could never have begun to lift and carry boxes and furniture the way I’ve done in the past 2 1/2 weeks.
And the house appraised at the higher amount! This is such a blessing. It is now in underwriting and if the bank approves the amount, we will get significantly more than we were asking for the house! That will definitely help with the rent we have to pay monthly at the RV park. Our house has been paid for for many years and it will be a new experience to make a rent payment.
Miss Piper asked if I would make her a blanket for her babies. She would also like two washcloths. She was very specific in her colors. She wants a gray blanket and one gray and one blue washcloth. She takes very good care of her babies and I have made her lots of blankets in the past but she likes to have each of her babies have their own blanket. Of course I said yes! When we were at storage Wednesday night, I located my totes of yarn and I found these partial skeins of gray yarn and the blue yarn too. I sent this photo to her for her approval and Mandy said her answer was “yes, exactly!” Now I really hope this is enough gray to make the entire blanket, because my goal is not to buy any more yarn until I use up what I have. Maybe I could get away with a few stripes of white if I start running low.
Cindy of the “Delighted Hands” blog over on my side bar made these four beautiful masks for me. They have this pretty gray floral print on one side.
And the other side is a surprise! Tie-dye and a nice blue print fabric. These came at the perfect time. Dennis only had one mask for work and I had to wash it every night. This way I have a little more time to get each one washed as he’ll have one to wear one day and another the next. Thank you so much Cindy. My sewing machine is all packed up and I was having difficulty finding elastic anywhere.
And this meme just plain cracked me up. Any husband worth his salt knows better than to answer the question like this. 😂😂😂
I did finish a baby blanket today to give to the hospital once they’re accepting donations again. It’s not the greatest photo since I took it just now, well after dark, but it gives you the idea of what it looks like. The angle is wonky but it’s actually square, 33 x 33 inches.
I have hung my crocheted summer flowers garland on the island in the trailer. It makes it feel more like home.
I baked a coffee cake for breakfast today and we shared it with Larry and Nita. I also baked from “scratch” some chocolate chip cookies this afternoon. I love the oven in my new trailer as it is easy to light and works great for a travel trailer. I rarely used the one in the other trailer.
And now it’s 11:15 and I need to go to bed. Take care my friends and stay safe.
