Friday list

Not a very exciting list –

early appointment to get my stitches out (results are in – one benign, one precancerous. Appointment with a dermatologist next month to look at everything else)

stop by Agway to see if they have any composted manure and chopped straw mulch to put on the asparagus for the winter.

Stop by the pellet stove place to schedule the annual service call.

Finish Halloween cards and pack up the college kids packages
PO to mail them.

Then, sadly work. Lots and lots of grant and report deadlines this month, not sure how I will get through it all, but it means working some on this long holiday weekend. Maybe lots. 😦

Friday List

A and I are both starting a week’s vacation today, so she is joining me on this list.  It’s great to have her along!

 This morning we will head to Ellsworth early:

Stop at the Post Office on the way to pick up the giveaway package that is waiting there for me, from All night Knitter – can’t wait!

Then it is too the doctor to have my stitches out and learn the ramifications of “pre-cancerous” and what it means for all the similar but small bits on my back.

Following that, we go to breakfast somewhere – of the take out variety, on our way to Stonington. I haven’t been to Stonington yet this summer, and I love their farmers market.  I think today is the last one of the season, so I put it on the must do list. It was harder to convince A that this is what she wanted to do, I had to promise a really good lunch.  Luckily, there are many choices down there this time of year.

After lunch, we wander back up off the island, up the peninsula and into the real world.

Stop by the vet’s to get some wormer for Tigger, who sadly has shown some signs of worms.  The downside of being a good mouser.

I’ll also need to either go back to the PO or stop at the one in Ellsworth, to mail off the package to my give-away winner.  The goodies are all made, wrapped and boxed.  Just have to get to the PO when the desk is open.  Gets tough in rural America with all the cuts, but that is another story.

Somewhere in here we also have to call Down East Toyota rentals and see if they have a truck for us to rent for the weekend, and if they do, we then have to run to the town office in Bucksport to get a temporary dump permit, and then to Bangor to get the truck.

 I’ll have my knitting with me, never fear!

So it will be a day of mixed messages – chores and vacation activities.
