I wish I could say my weekend was great. I was sick the whole weekend, I have so much to get caught up on and more stuff seems to find it way on to that pile. My vacuum is broke, and I have to wait for payday to buy a new one. Which is Friday and it can’t come soon enough. As clean as my house can possibly be, it still seems filthy to me because the carpet isn’t clean. The broom can only do so much! My laundry tub over flowed once again, and I have to deal with the odor of wet carpet in my laundry room. Who puts carpet in their laundry room?
Baseball. Baseball is about the most exciting thing happening in this house right now. With Bailey’s season about to start and our Minnesota Twins having a fantastic start we’ve been pretty happy people around here! I know, I know the season has just started, there are well over 100 games to go. I don’t care, I watch every game, and every game is just as important as the last and the next one. We do have an amazing team this year, it makes me giddy! Now to watch my very favorite boy play, he should be starting within the next couple weeks.
I was down the road today waiting for Bailey to get off the bus. You all remember my very first “Free Chat Thursday” I wrote and talked about the crazy lady that thought people were walking on her roof? Well I got to chatting with her today. She’s moving, and offered a lot of her lilac bushes and flowers to me. So that’s what I’ll be doing this evening. Digging up flowers and transplanting them in my yard! All free!!!!! I love free things, especially flowers!!!
I also found out that all 3 houses on her side of our road are ALL in foreclosure right now! Blew my mind! I gathered she doesn’t have a lot of people to talk to. I sat there for 15 minutes after Bailey had gotten off the bus, talking to her. Or, her talking to me rather. She pointed out this shed to me behind a house down the road and across the way. It was a nice shed, tan wood siding, nice roof. She said someone was living in it, for over a year now! No electricity, no water. I imagine they’d use that house to shower and stuff. I mean, one can only imagine. Makes me a grateful. It was a nice little chat I had with Miss Ellie, I’ll miss her when she’s gone.
Have a great day and enjoy your weekend! 🙂
