He and Mandy have mowed both yards twice this week and that doesn’t count Mandy taking care of her own grass. The big project was changing the toilets last week and the kitchen sink on Friday night. At least I think it was Friday night, it could have been Thursday night. I have completely lost track of the days. Dennis and Tim worked for hours trying to get the garbage disposal off of the old sink so they could reuse it. Unfortunately they ended up cutting it off and making a quick trip to Home Depot to buy a new one.
I do love my new cast-iron sink though. It has extra deep basins and the new faucet works great. The old one I believe, was original to the house and it had a constant drip
These were the two toilets that we replaced. I put them on Facebook marketplace as “free to a good home” and we had 24 people who wanted them! I had people who offered us over $100 just for the turquoise one! But, I had already promised them to a woman who was driving an hour and a half just to get them. I told her if she wanted the turquoise one, she had to take the white one too, just as a joke and she agreed. She got them both for free.
I did manage to make four pair of mittens over the last couple of weeks. They are laying on the new 8 x 10‘ rug that we bought for the family room.
You know I always say yarny people are the most generous people in the world. I asked Debbie, who is Araignee on my sidebar, what she did with all of the ends of the skeins of the socks that she knits. She had never mentioned, to my knowledge, any projects using the leftover sock yarn. I asked her if I could purchase any leftovers that she had, to use in my nine patch blanket. The next thing I knew, she had mailed me two boxes full of yarn. Here it is all piled in one of my metal tubs. I love these colors! Most of the yarn that I have right now to go into these blankets is plain brown, black, or gray. These colors will really brighten it up. Debbie, I can’t thank you enough. You are the best! Thank you!
I know there is a lot more that I should be telling all of you. I am just so tired I can barely stay awake. My cardiologist visit went OK last week. He is concerned that my leads may be coming unfastened because of a sound they heard when they my interrogated my pacemaker. He sent me for X-rays and I guess we should hear the outcome soon. I’m sure it is nothing serious because I feel just fine.
Tomorrow we are going to have our wills redone for Nebraska. With the money that we have paid attorneys getting wills done, our kids could’ve taken a cruise! Apparently the wills that you have in one state do not carry over into another state, so we had to have ours redone when we moved to Spokane. Now they have to be redone again.
We also both applied for our drivers licenses in Nebraska and we got my car licensed. The truck will wait until Dennis moves here permanently. My car is in the auto body repair shop being fixed from where it was hit last week. See what I mean about it being busy?
Dennis and I attended a funeral today for an uncle in the family who passed away a few days ago. I was so glad I got to see him and talk to him two weeks ago at church. He lived a very happy and generous life, always giving to others.
Wednesday we have another funeral for a much younger family member.
I will let you read about sweet little Kara yourself. It is a devastating blow to family and to their many friends and the medical professionals that took such good care of little Kara.
With that I’ll close. I am so glad that Jesus is my rock always. Especially when times get rough. I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I’m praying for each of you.
