Today is Wednesday, October 6, 2010. The weather has really cooled off this week! It has been in the the high 70's all week and in the 50's over night. I do believe that fall is coming!
With the cooler temperatures the house is opened up, loving it. Cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom and cleaned out cabinets of "stuff" that hasn't seen day light since this time last year. If it hasn't been used in a year, it gets tossed. Then I moved things around, so it should be interesting when the guys go looking for something.
George is back to wearing long jeans to work. He has been is shorts all summer and yesterday he decided that it might be best to wear something a little warmer. I am going to put that off for as long as I can. My feet won't know what to do being enclosed, they like nothing on them and only sandals when they are forced into them.
The holiday candy was put on hold the last couple of days. That's okay the house sure feels better. Tomorrow I will get back at it and have it finished just like all of the other years.
Mama called me yesterday and said that she had gotten a check from that guy for $250! Well that's a start. If it takes him six months to pay her back, at least she will get it. I don't think she will ever do something like that again. She told me after five months she didn't think she would be seeing it again. Keeping fingers crossed that he continues to repay her.
While cleaning the pool yesterday, I thought, hey I don't have to close this thing up by myself this year! George is home and he and the boys can do it. If the temperatures continue being cooler, we can get it closed up soon. Nothing like pouring money, time and energy into a pool that is way to cold to use, just doesn't make sense.
The girls laid over ten dozen eggs last month! I am so proud of them. Now I need to get the sides of their house covered and get them some light in there. As long as they have 14 hours of light they will continue to lay. Have to make sure they stay warm so have to get a heat light in there too. Then I read that if they "drink" frozen water it would kill them. So I need to figure out how to keep their water from freezing when it gets really cold.
Added some jewelry to my shop the last two days. Took pictures and even listed them, this is not my favorite thing to do. My pictures never look right no matter how many I take or at what time I take them. I do find it is better taking them outside.
The top for the Jeep arrived yesterday! Needless to say George had a project to do last night after dinner. It looks pretty good, it wasn't available in white, so got the black one with tinted windows in the back. The tinted windows will make it cooler for the kids. Going to see mama today, have to wait until early afternoon. She doesn't get up in the mornings, likes to stay up all night.
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today.~Brightest Blessings~
