On The Count Down

Today is Monday, October 19, 2009. The cooler weather has been here the last couple of days. It was only 36 degrees last night. It is supposed to get back up to the 70's today and the rest of the week.

Needless to say I needed to start the heater yesterday, only when I turned it on nothing happened. Trying to get some other things finished up, I went ahead and just turned it off, will deal with this later.

Finished up the things that needed to be done in the yard and pool. I can't wait to shut that pool down for the year. So much work and no enjoyment, hopefully in the next couple of weeks the temperatures will stay down and we can close it up. Then only to run the pump for an hour a day and all will be good.

Back inside I turned the heater back on and this time it kicked on, but no heat. OK, now what? So I called my son in law who does a/c work for a living. He is wonderful, I just love him. Not because he does a/c work, but because he married my daughter. He came over and replaced the thermostat and all was warm.

I am now on a count down for hubby to be home. He will be home about eleven Friday night! I am so excited! So I will start cooking Friday to make the time go faster. I cook and freeze his meals for him to take with him. This way when he gets off work, he doesn't have to cook, just put it into the microwave and eat.

Got my starter bread going to this weekend so his next trip in he will have mini loaves of sweet bread to take with him. That man loves bread and it doesn't matter what kind. With this bread you can make different flavors by using instant pudding and adding nuts, raisins or whatever you would like. My favorite was the butterscotch, yummy.

So this week will be busy getting things taken care of before he gets here Friday. The only thing that he will have to do is cut a limb that is scarping the side of the house. He will leave on Sunday about three, but he will be home every two weeks instead of thirty days.

Colors for the week:
Monday Silver
Tuesday Maroon
Wednesday Topaz
Thursday Green
Friday Coral
Saturday Indigo
Sunday Yellow

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today.~Brightest Blessings~
