Monday, I went with Abe to Kettering to see his arthritis doctor, we stopped and had lunch at the Chinese place in Englewood. I trimmed the backyard with the weed eater/trimmer, (electric and light weight) still trying to get the hang of using it. Watered the flowers in the front, filled the many dishes we have sitting around for the birds and small animals to drink from. Also had to run to the bank, post-office and pick up a bag of ice after Audrey got on the bus.
Yesterday I mowed the front yard and also trimmed. We moved four clumps of ornamental grass, took the leaf guards off the gutters in the front, Abe trimmed the oak tree, we cut up branches, stuffed them into the brown (large) bags we have to buy from the city and hauled the two bags out to the collection site. Rode with Abe over to Lewisburg so he could walk around a little looking for different birds or something interesting to take a photo of, came back home and I decided we were going to have Manwiches for supper, along with chips and a Junior whoppie pie. Not healthy but I was tired. I also cut up several yellow delicious apples into quarters. Then I played on the computer for a little while, called my Mother and watched Dancing With The Stars. Also ran to grocery to pick up the Manwich, chips and whoppie pies.
So glad the one called Melissa didn't win, she was good, but I thought she was kind of whiny. I was really surprised the young girl won. I thought for sure the man would win. I have a hard time keeping track of the names, I guess it was Shane that won and Gill or Gell came in at a close 1% difference.
Oh yes, I rescued a dog that lives several houses up the street, she had a workman there doing something in the backyard, apparently the workman broke their garage door, had someone come look at the door to give them a price on fixing it, when they left, apparently the door between the kitchen and garage was left standing open, dog got out. Lady that lives there wasn't home at the time, I also need to call her to find out the dogs name. She seemed tickled to see me (the dog that is) although I don't know why, since I have never talked to the dog. Plus she was a little heavy to carry, but I didn't have to go to far.
Today I mowed the backyard, cleaned off the mower, the back was still pretty damp in spots so there was a lot of wet grass on the bottom of the mower. Doing up some laundry. Swept the garage floor, since the car was out, Abe went back to Lewisburg looking for that Pileated Woodpecker. I told him I thought he could go alone, just to walk slow and leave the cell phone turned on. He got back by lunch time, dishes are done, I have some stew meat simmering to put some dropped dough (I call them rivels, not sure of the spelling)into the broth for supper, along with some kind of a vegetable and probably applesauce for dessert. Melissa will be extremely late tonight since it is exam night. My dryer just buzzed, so it's time to fold the towels. I have one more load to do up and the laundry is done this week for Abe and me.
Now you know what kind of an exciting life I led. LOL Also played my move on a Scrabble game a lady and I have going over the internet. And talked to a person at Express Scripts, plus called my Mother real quick to see how she liked the outcome of the DWTS. There you have it. Our youngest Granddaughter said she wished she was retired, and I asked her why, and she said so she wouldn't have to do anything. I tried explaining, even when retired, there are things that have to be done if you have your own home and etc. But she thinks it's all games on the computer, playing on the internet, talking on the phone, watching TV and not having to get dressed unless you really want to. Kids!!
