Friday night was game night – late night (for me!) I got home around 10:30. A left around 7:30, so she had a normal night. It is fun to play games with the people at her job, I think, but she has a short attention span for it. So I go, and she stays for a while. Luckily, because of the logistics of playing after work, we have two vehicles there. but we played two games that were quick, and that she liked – one was Zombie Dice, and I can’t recall the name of the other one.
Saturday I was exhausted – not sure why, I wasn’t out that late! But it felt almost like I was coming down with something. Time will tell. I did a little work on my reports Saturday – very frustrating, because none of the files would open, so I had to run to the office to load them from the server onto a thumb drive. Came back, they opened just fine, no thumb drive needed. Ugh.
We went to Brewer to have “lupper” with A’s sisters at Kosta’s – it was yummy, and I will be having leftovers for supper tonight. Then we went to Lowe’s – made ourselves walk every aisle, as we had not really exercised in a few days. It is a n expensive way to exercise, as there are many many things we want from there. L went with us – she had never been inside a Lowe’s before – only in the garden center. We could not believe it, as it has been a huge part of our lives for 4-5 years now! She was amazed at all they had, but probably won’t go there often, as she rents from a landlord who takes pretty good care of her place. I got some craft supplies (which others might think of as building supplies) and some Christmas decorations – yes they are out already! and some magazines. We also got a birthday present for little niece E who will be 6 next week. And a bunch of other stuff. A got some router bits to use on the last of the trim on the bed. She said she “needed” them. As I often “need” things like yarn, I could not argue.
Today we are still low energy – but we had to get ready for a visit from Sandy – brought in the lighter porch furniture, put the trash barrel up on the porch, that kind of thing. We don’t expect a big hit, but it seems the forecast calls for three days of heavy rain and high wind. So, we will make sure nothing we own can go blowing around, and hope that the trees stay put. We are high enough that flooding from the astronomically high tides and rain should not bother us – although, if it is really bad and timed right (wrong?), we will have to stay home, as the road has a low place near the marsh/river. Now that would be sad, given how much I have to get done next week.
Book group has already postponed our meeting. I will be glad to not have to drive in the storm after dark, although I like going to the group. I wonder if we will move our annual meeting?
So. Did a chore (or two) and wrote a blog post, so I now I get to go watch a show and do some knitting. Life is good. As long as we do the opposite of Scarlett O’Hara – don’t even think about tomorrow – at Tara or anywhere else. Just focus on today, a pretty warm autumn Sunday.
