I started out my Sunday as usual, by drinking my coffee while pounding out a letter to my daughter. I enjoy that couple of hours, when the house is empty. I don't get much alone time, and I'm a person who needs that.
I spent some time in the garden. We're supposed to get rain for most of this week, and that is very good news. I carried buckets to the garden to give everything a good watering before the rain hits Monday night or Tuesday morning.
William's last day of school is Friday. Monday morning on the 13th, he and I are headed east for a week. He's plenty excited and so am I. I will have both grands in the same place and there is a promise of lots of pool time. On the way home, we'll visit Crystal Caves. William doesn't know about that. It will be a surprise.
We bought the carpeting for the renovation. The guys were funny and talkative, even though they were having difficulty with the cutting/rolling machine. We offered to return the following day, because it was getting close to closing time. They wouldn't hear of it. Their good humor made spending a large sum of money a lot less painful. We were still laughing when we left the store.
It should be the final big expense for the place, which is a big happy.
Once at the apartment, the tenant who lives in the other side of the house came right out to give us a hand to haul four heavy rolls inside, bless her heart.
I told Tim he was treating me to a six pack of Raspberry Ice wine coolers. He did so without complaint and I had him drop me off at Paula's. I knocked on her door. I handed one of the wine coolers over to her and we both laughed like loons, me headed for home, she uncapping as she walked back inside her home.
When I got home, there was yet one more happy event. Mangey was waiting outside the door. When he saw me, he spoke pleasantly. I asked him if he was hungry and took his bowl in side. His mange looks a LOT better. He doesn't appear to be digging at it. I'll probably give him another dose of medication later in the week, but I was awfully glad to see how much his skin has improved.
It was an ordinary day, I suppose. Boring even, I suppose, but I'm sitting here perfectly happy, and I don't think it's just the Smirnoff.
